Addiction hijacks human intention and priority resulting in spiritual idolatry to their dependency/addiction. This is reflected in the way they choose their addiction over more healthy behaviors. It is reflected in their misguided priorities, and in the way the addict looses connection with their emotions and as well as the loss of control over their intentions and actions. Great care must be taken when an addict seeks to reconnect him/herself spiritually to not confuse religious activity with authentic spiritual relationship. Religion will never cure addiction, it only reinforces it. An authentic spiritual relationship is the foundation of a transforming kind of recovery.

This month's step
We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

This week's scripture
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and in his good time he will honor you. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.
I Peter 5:6-7 NLT

This week's quote
"A great turning point in our lives came when we sought for humility as something we really wanted, rather than as something we must have. It marked the time when we could commence to see the full implication of Step Seven".
