~Addiction Due To Disconnection From A Higher Power~

According to the spiritual model, a disconnection from God or a Higher Power causes addiction. This separation causes people’s suffering because they fail to live according to God’s will or direction. Therefore, recovery consists of establishing or re-establishing a connection with God or a Higher Power. The most prominent example of the spiritual approach is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other 12-step groups. Participants practice 12-steps. These 12-steps help people restore their spiritual connection with a higher power.

Poetry {31} ~ MAKING GOLD OUT OF BREAKING CHAINS

We have lost the touch with who we truly are

Insecurities running the show

Flashing lights, temptations lighting up in false glow

Through a world that profits from pain and addiction

Self-loathing, hate and contradiction

Sneaky deals, snakes and manipulation

Upholding the ego consolidation

The world gifts us so much pain

Yet here we are not yet insane

Making gold out of breaking chains

This is the pure reminants of the human resilience of spirit

For one day we shall return to dust

Remembering who we truly are before we loose the scared trust.

Quotes {28} ~ A Wound Is At The Centre Of Addictive Behaviours

“Not all addictions are rooted in abuse or trauma, but I do believe they can all be traced to painful experience. A hurt is at the centre of all addictive behaviours. It is present in the gambler, the Internet addict, the compulsive shopper and the workaholic. The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden—but it’s there. As we’ll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain.” ~ Gabor Mate, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

Poetry {28} ~ ADDICTION, MASTER & SLAVE

Addiction, an uncomprehending, torturous road to hell

Void and empty, a vacuum of a shell

No where to hide yet a story to tell

Psychological delirium

A mind bending black hole of serum

Oscillations betwixt cold and sickly pale

Into a sweaty hot claustrophobic stale

Murdering interests and drives

Speckling the soul in shuddering hives

Poison tainted veins

I’ll be your master, you’ll be my slave

I’ll follow you into the depths of the well of a grave

I’ll even tear your relationships and families apart

Don’t worry that’s just the start

Sticky quicksand until we part

Turning into a stranger to yourself, how did it get to be this way?

To live or die, this is the mental sway

To face the withdrawals and live another day

Take your pills and shut up

Take my hand, I’ll lead you to spheres of Dante’s hell.
