When you love an addict, you spend a lot of time and energy hoping he or she will change. You probably put up with a lot of unacceptable behavior. The addict may steal from you, lie to you and make promises that he doesn’t keep. He or she may disappear for days on end and neglect you or other family members, including children. The person you fell in love with doesn’t seem to be there anymore.
You may reach a point that you feel you can’t take it anymore and you threaten to leave or give up on he or she.
You issue the ultimate threat: It’s drugs or me.
You hope he / she choose you. You expect them to choose you. Anyone who really loved you would choose you, wouldn't he?
It’s not that simple.
Well Family and friend let me try an help you get a little understanding of The Nature of Addiction
The Nature of Addiction is that the addict is obsessed with using drugs. He chases the effect provided by drugs compulsively and on a level that is far beyond his control. No matter how much he wants to choose you, he can’t. only God Can help them but they must wan't the help themselves first.
If he/she could simply choose to stop, he/she wouldn’t be an addict.
The urge to continue to use drugs is both psychological, physical and spiritual. Attempts to discontinue use result in extremely unpleasant, even dangerous, side effects. If he tries to stop, he may experience shaking, sweating or a sense of extreme panic. In some cases, discontinuing drug use abruptly can lead to seizures or death but God is in control and heal all the enemy side effects.
When an addict uses drugs over a long period of time, he experiences changes to his brain. Levels of chemicals in the brain known as neurotransmitters are altered. Not only is the pleasure center of the brain affected, but there are also changes in the way the addict learns and makes decisions which cause them not to turn it over to God. that how it will affect he /she spiritual.
Experiencing life under the influence of chemicals is his/she new normal, and life without mind-altering drugs feels terribly abnormal to him. At this point, his relationship with drugs has become the most important relationship in his/her life. Anything that threatens that relationship is likely to be discarded, not because he wants to choose drugs over you, but because he/she has to. He/she truly doesn't have a choice.
He/she will choose drugs over everything, not just his/her relationship with you. Drugs will come before his/her job, his/her friends, his/her other family members, his/her church, and his/her goals, his/her dreams and even his/her basic survival tools such as food and water. He/she may forget to eat and may neglect personal hygiene. the thing the this devil call addiction will try and steal is his/her God which is their FREEDOM.
You are truly powerless over his addiction choices....
You can’t control or cure his/ her addiction, but you may have some influence over him. Family members may join together for an intervention. If you follow through on ultimatums and threats and learn to stop enabling addictive behavior, there is a chance the addict will be willing to take steps to get help.
The most important thing you need to focus on PRAYING AND BEING CONSISTENT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD in the present of the addict and then taking care of yourself. Put energy into focusing on your own life instead of trying to control him. Join a support group.
Learn as much as you can about the disease of addiction, and about your own co-dependence.
Although it is painful, remind yourself that if the addict chooses drugs over you, it’s not personal.
If addicts could choose not to use drugs, they wouldn't be addicts.
Choosing to stay in the fight with he/ she is a personal decision. As long as you live with an active addict, you need to get help and support for yourself. Offer as much love and support to yourself as you offer to the addict. Learn to set boundaries to protect yourself, and know that his rejection of you is caused by addiction, not absence of love.
