Addiction costs over 500,000 annually. The cost to families and individuals is incalculable. Why are we, as individuals and as a society, willing to pay this kind of price to continue in the addictive patterns that flourish in our culture? Addiction has nearly become an accepted way of life. Are you willing to continue to pay the price for your addiction, or are you ready to do something different? Listen to the story of Mike Reis, former sex addict and alcoholic, addiction recovery coach, author and speaker who believes that it is NEVER too late to become the person God intended you to be. He knows. He has lived it!

Addictions are not just about chemicals and alcohol. You can be addicted to just about anything. Food addiction is a tough one to beat. It’s not like you can just stop eating! Comfort food is flagrantly flashed in front of you in about 50% of commercials. Just about every celebration is accompanied by the smells and sights of high carb, low nutrition selections. How do you learn to say no to this most acceptable of addictions? First, says Dr. Jim Wilder, understand the unmet need behind the drive for food. As we head into the holidays, arm yourself with a new perspective for the great food challenge.
Join us Tuesday Dec 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm Est Usa as Miss Raina discusses the struggle of addiction.
For one to struggle with an addiction to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and unhealthy food, is a life challenge. For many, their lives are shaped, challenged and changed forever by the overuse of a product that gives rise to a peaceful feeling. Although the joyous feeling is temporary, the moments of a feeling are strong enough to control the actions of ones life.
We must understand that addiction reaches all of us at some point in our lives. Most of us are unaware that an addiction has a grasp on our life until we have put ourselves in a place of trouble and despair.

Who doesn’t want more joy in their life? The fact is that low joy levels are the best indicator that someone is at high risk for an addictive lifestyle. The higher your level of joy is, the less vulnerable you are to getting caught up in the addictive cycle. Building the capacity for increased joy and the skills needed to live a joyful life are both possible. Join us as Ed Khouri brings hope for healing from, and staying free from addiction in his third and last episode on the Healing Addiction series with Beyond Abuse Radio.
Step 11 of the 12 steps for addiction recovery:
"Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out."
Many believe that a complete spiritual transformation is required to end drug and alcohol addiction, Step 11 is a very critical and often over looked element of this transformation. Improving our relationship with our higher power can deliver us from addiction and give us the joyous and free life that we all are seeking.
