“If you struggle with addiction or have overcome addiction be it food or alcohol or drugs or sex or anything else…Please join us at a Hope For addiction meeting.
Hope for Addiction is a safe, encouraging, environment where we share and discuss the word of God and how to apply practical and faithful skills to combat our struggles. If you are a believer or not, we would love to see you there!
This week I was both struggling with food and alcohol. The temptation was real. Because of what I have learned in our Hope for Addiction group, I was able to #1, Recognize I was being tempted, #2, share with my husband and a friend that I was being tempted, #3, practice my action plan of praying first and then worshipping, and then diving into God’s word, and then exercising! There was no guilt, and I was able to separate my emotions enough to overcome my immediate desire! I have celebrated so many victories this week despite challenges!
I can confidently say before this group I had no idea how to deal with my cravings or my feelings. After trying several other recovery and therapy programs and not seeing any real change, I am happy to report that we are halfway through this year, and I am pounds down!! John and I both will be 7 months sober as of July! Praise God there is Freedom, there is Hope for Addiction!”
