The disease of addiction lives in our thinking. It is a cunning, baffling, insidious force that only leads us to destruction. If we come to understand what we are battling and decide not to give it an edge, we take it’s power away. The problem is never outside of our self. It lives in our mind. The evil force is never going to stop but we quiet it down through meditation. As long as we are accountable to our support network and share what the monster is saying, we take its power away.
