ADDICTION Quotes


Addiction can take so many forms. Sure, we can become addicted to drugs or alcohol, but many people have been seduced inside by the lure of money, gambling, sex, power and even love. An addiction can grip us, it can consume us, and ultimately it can become our master. Through addiction quotes, we can find inspiration and strength that allow us to break the shackles of our addiction and move beyond it. At first, in small steps, eventually greater strides, finding solace that others, through their addiction quotes, have shared their own travails, struggles, setbacks, and hopefully, victory.

Addiction   

C.S. Lewis

"A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is.... A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in." C.S. Lewis

"I know I struggled with it during my high school/adolescent stage. It was an addiction that I fought with every day. I was trying to conquer my sexual desires through something the world says is acceptable. Though it is no longer a daily struggle, it is something that I must ask God to sustain me from. I understand now that only God can fight these battles. Through God's strength, temptations, especially pornography, can be defeated, but only if we maintain a daily relationship with Him."
