The Birth of Crave


Ever wonder why we crave our addiction?

Neuro-transmitters, or chemicals, are released by our brains when we act out.  The more we act out the more these chemicals are released in unhealthy massive amounts.

Epinephrin 
Ohhh something exciting is coming and I can't wait till it gets here!

Dopamine  
This feels sooooo goooood!

Seratonin   
It feels so good that I'm going to brand how good it feels into my memory.

Oxytocin  
... and nurture it, this euphoria that I'm feeling; take care of it, keep it warm, love it.

Resistance is futile
Recovery is fruitful

  1. Reading "He Restoreth My Soul" I remember reading about the brain damage done by addiction, by these chemicals and thinking, "I'm broken for life." But I testify that God heals our brains. It is a miracle. Recovery is fruitful. It is healing.

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
