"Addiction's a tough enemy to defeat. I think of it as a monster. If I feed it, it will always want more and more, so now I'm letting it starve to death in a corner. But it's always there." (a Hollywood actress after years of rehab; taken from a website in 2010)

Every day we can make the choice to either feed or starve the monster. There is hope!


Feed the Right Wolf.....    
"The wolf we feed will be the one to survive..... This applies to addiction, despair, discouragement, jealousy, hatred, and also to faith, courage, strength, hope, testimony......We choose!!"

"I agree. Satan's first step is to make us think we have no choice. Isn't interesting how the "war in heaven" with Satan was over agency....nothing really has changed!"

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
