Most people don’t just get it – Addiction is nothing easy to let go.
It slowly creeps into your mind and controls your body.
With each passing day, it eats you up until you become depressed.
I have had my experiences with addiction.
And luckily, God redeemed me from myself.
For four years through medical school, I was addicted to smoking.
My cravings were unbelievable because I could not stay for an hour without smoking.
I knew smoking was a shameful act, but within me, I was helpless.
Sometimes, I stayed for a week, and then I was back to smoking again.
But some years ago, I made up my mind to quit.
And that was it – God intervened.
It has been years since I stopped smoking and it is all because of God’s grace over my life.
Likewise, God is willing to set you free from all types of addiction.
From pornography, masturbation, stealing, drugs, alcohol, and the rest of them.
It all starts with believing in yourself and Trusting in God.
I have compiled powerful prayers for addictions to heal your obsessions.
These prayers could be used for loved once and family members to regain their freedom from bad habits.
Addiction is spiritual warfare, and we must be ready to ask God for deliverance and dominion over our cravings.

Bible verses about addictions
1 Corinthians 6:12
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
