When we think about addiction, whether it’s related to drugs or alcohol or something else, it’s not uncommon for addiction to be classified as an illness or a disease. But this definition rules out an underlying truth, and that is that addiction at its root, is simply sin. Written by long-time counselor and expert in the field, Ed Welch, Addictions explores the relationship between the sinful nature of greed, lust, obsessions, and cravings to addictions that are out of control. And most importantly in this tremendously helpful book, he gives specific steps for breaking the hopeless cycle of wanting more. If you struggle with addictive behavior, you’ll find Ed Welch’s teaching on why we’re addicted a vital first step to the road to recovery.
