My Long time addiction has rendered me Hopeless
#1
I’m a 35 year old guy and in spite of what my addiction has done,I haven’t been able to quit my bad habit. I have forayed into such a forum for the firs time and hope for some positive changes. I just need some advice and guidance from people who came over their vices. I’ve reached a stage where I can’t embarrass myself anymore. I hv come here with immense expectations and hope it brings some sort of socialization.

The obvious question is, what are you addicted to?
Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you, my friend....any minor world that breaks apart, falls together again.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you find some peace in joining here. I have found lots throughout the stages of my own addiction.

Welcome to the forum suman.1407.  I look for opportunities here to help or encourage others struggling with life by providing a Christian perspective on things.  I wanted to reference a good addict/recovery success story video that you might be able to relate to, but can't really do that effectively without knowing a bit more about your history and situation.  Feel free to open up a bit more here or with a pm to me if you're genuninely receptive to seeking guidance.  I think you'll find everyone here very supportive.

Don't use the fact O.P. has an addiction problem to bombard him/her with Christian propaganda and try and get them to "see the light".

Yes, it does all depend on what the addiction involves, but the book "The Addictive Personality" by Craig Nakken says a lot of revealing things about the whys and hows behind many addictions. I've had some addictions in the past that didn't really interfere with my life as a whole, but I found them annoying so I did some research. As I said, mine were minor and more annoying than destructive but perhaps many addictions come from similar sources?

Welcome to the forum. There are many ways for you to go about stopping your addiction, regardless of what it is and you don't have to share that if you don't want to. All you have to do is give them a try. And yes, there are Christian methods that work for a lot of people, so I wouldn't necessarily rule them out, whether you are religious or not. Take advice from anyone and everyone that offers it because if you don't see all of your options, you'll struggle to find methods to try. You never know what will work for you.

That said, the first step is admitting you have a problem, now just make a personal goal of getting it under control and then stopping it entirely, so it's great that you have done that and want to get away from it.

Feel free to check out the chat room, if you're interested Smile

In my case I had to admit that I couldn't control my addiction. I hated that. But, I couldn't stop until I admitted it to myself. Once I fully understood that it took several attempts to completely stop. Then whenever I felt the urge I would scream inside NO! I would get angry about it too! Anger is a strong emotion and very helpful when used for good purposes. If I was tempted I would say NO! After awhile it became easier and easier to say NO! It took many years before my cravings disappeared. But, if/when tempted again I still say NO. It's just way easier now.
