We humans can become addicted to almost anything. It’s not just substances that get us, but behaviours, habits and many other pleasures in life. But why is that so many things, can take hold of us in unhealthy ways, robbing us of the joy and pleasure we’re seeking? Ultimately, it is because we give too much of ourselves to those things and we seek more from them than they can give us. We turn to substances and behaviours for reward, refuge and redemption, instead of our creator God.
