Various forms of addiction like alcoholism, smoking, intake of drugs, immoral habits ruin not only the user but also those associated with him. In many parts of the world, addictions are the cause of major health problems.
How many families have been ruined? How many have spent their last penny on their addictions rather than provide for their hungry children? The results are indeed alarming and on the heavy rise. Addictions lead to much unhappiness and often families are destroyed and torn apart.
The persons who are having addiction must first admit that they have problems. They must be honest with themselves and others. They must also have the support of their family and friends, who should make them, realize that they are not only ruining their own live but also their close family members too.
Bad habits like taking drugs are serious matters to be looked at. The health of the person will deteriorate and affect his mental condition also. This person must be made to realize that his or her life is not one that should be wasted and that God has given a body only to make use of, not destroy by taking poisonous substances like drugs and drinks. Prayer and counseling must be given to the person concerned to save life.
Immoral practices also are rising especially with the added technology of the web. People now resort to any means to make money. This will affect not only their health but their family life too. The very basis of society is a strong family. The only true friends will be close family members in times of need. The persons who are immorally inclined must be made to understand that youth passes with time and as age progresses, the only remaining support will be that of those who really love for love’s sake. Money can be and must be earned through rightful means in order to last and give happiness to everyone.
The people who have gone wayward must not however be scorned or ridiculed; instead they must be lovingly cajoled and brought back to normal life with continued persuasion. Prayer and God’s grace can save the black sheep. An environment of love must be created to rescue addicted people by talking. Sweet and true words with honesty will transform such persons. Dedication is a must. Addicted people may pose problems of many sorts, even abuse, but if you really love and care, then you should try to bring back into life a person who was absolutely wonderful not long ago until the ghost of bad habits took possession.
Love, prayer, support, determination and dedication are the main tools one should use to curb addiction.
