"The reality of active addiction is that alcoholics will often rationalize their drinking. As with any addicted individual, alcoholics engage in wishful thinking and live in a fantasy world when it comes to alcohol and their addiction.

Oftentimes, out of their sheer desire to maintain the habit, they refuse to acknowledge the fact that it has become a deterrent to a happy and fulfilled life. Here are some of the most common erroneous thoughts of an alcoholic."

All addictions, serve an emotional purpose. Addictions are not just substance abuses (drugs, alcohol), but also behaviors. You can’t get addicted to a substance or behavior that doesn’t do something for you. In humans, the common denominator behind any compulsive behavior is the desire for a, “quick fix or mood changer,” for how we feel, the need to feel better. Addictive behavior is learned, there is always a reason and a reward.

The purpose of any addiction is to regain control over intolerably helpless-trapped-powerless feelings, an emotional state. This helplessness is always rooted in something deeply important to the individual.

The antidote for any hurt, habit or hangup: Is when you choose to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, when you replace the rewards of displaced behaviors or addictions with the rewards of direct Christ Driven Behavior (CDB). When you give God control that control (2 Cor. 12:9-10) will be returned to you with the fruits of the spirit including self-control (Gal 5-22-23). We develop new transformed thinking, new values, motivation, purpose and character (Romans 12:2). Christ is a great motivational mentor if you let Him; if you are willing to intellectually delegate control to the more qualified entity (John 14:16). Jesus Christ has been teaching behavior therapy for more than 2000 years with 66 books written by proxy. Through prayer and scripture we recognize our emotional weakness, our helpless situations, we Reframe the pros and cons of our behavior and Replace the cons with new CDB behavior. Face life with assertive healthy direct behavior not substitute displaced quick fixes or mood changers. Change your thinking without external psychotropic quick fixes or mood changers. Change your thinking and change your life. Life's greatest high is facing life without artifact. Neurons that fire together, wire together. Where attention goes, neuro-firing flows and neuro-connection grows! When we learn to act with assertive healthy Christ Driven Behavior there is no addiction!

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
