How to Overcome Addiction and Cultivate Your Spiritual Self

Waking up in a jail cell with little to no recollection of how you got there really isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time"okay, at least it’s not most people’s idea of a good time"yet as a result of addiction, I, and many others like me have managed to accomplish this feat (and worse), and sometimes, on more than one occasion. So what gives? How could someone allow him or herself to come to that point in their life? Is it really as simple as the individual having weak morals or no will power like many people throughout the world believe? Absolutely not! Addiction is a disease, and is recognized as such by the American Medical Association because it is:

1) Chronic

2) Progressive

3) Fatal (if left untreated)

In this class we will explore in very simple terms how addiction works in the brain; how spiritual principles and spiritual living can create harmony for those who suffer from addiction; and most importantly, the very good news that while there is no life long cure for addiction (at least yet), it can be arrested, and thus, allow the affected individual to live just as happy, healthy, free and a prosperous life as anyone else. Whether you’re personally struggling with addiction, or know someone who is, please know that recovery is always possible, and I intend to give you the basics that will get you, or a loved one, onto the path of freedom from addiction.

The Top 10 Big Ideas
No, You’re Not Morally Weak
Addiction is not a hopeless condition from which there is no recovery. While yes, it is a disease that can be traced to a certain part of our brain"it is not a death sentence. It also is not a moral dilemma. Many people, including the addict themselves, often believe that it’s the substances that are the problem, but the truth of the matter is that the substances are simply a symptom of the disease. Within an addict’s brain, the activity of their frontal lobe (which is where rational thinking occur) can literally become shut down by the other parts of the brain due to significant significant stressors in the body. Thus, the addicts brain resorts to its survival, or, fight or flight response; which means, consuming drugs or alcohol regardless of possible consequences (family, friends, jail, health and so on).
Surrendering Is Actually The Bravest Thing You Can Do
For someone affected by addiction to admit they have a problem is not only an extremely vulnerable thing to do, but it’s also one of the most fearless acts they will ever commit in their life. The first step in the twelve-step fellowships is "We admitted that we were powerless over our addiction (or "alcohol” in AA), that our lives had become unmanageable”. The key word in that sentence is "we” because it lets the affected individual know they are not alone! There are countless others in recovery who have gone through what we’ve gone through; which includes the initial stages of getting clean"detox, rehab, aftercare, and medication (usually temporary) in some cases.
Addiction is A Family Disease
It’s of paramount importance to acknowledge that addiction is family disease, and just as the affected person suffers from addiction and needs help to heal, so do their families. Family members sometimes unknowingly enable or become codependent on the addicts behavior, so taking a look at this and setting healthy boundaries if necessary are extremely important; it can literally save your loved ones life. And the really good news is that the process of healing"for everyone involved"can bring about a stronger family bond than ever before!
Cultivating Spirituality? Isn’t That For Hippies, New Agers And Yoga Students?
Spirituality is becoming increasingly more mainstream these days, which for the most part is great because there can never be enough mindfulness and compassion in the world. Plus, it wonderfully compliments and enhances our lives in recovery! However"and in the interest of full disclosure"my heart sometimes flinches at spirituality’s increasing popularity as well because it opens the doors for some of the big businesses greedy hands to get involved.

So before anyone tries to sell you on anything, let’s look at what authentic spirituality means for you in your life and on your path of recovery.
A Phoenix Rising From The Ashes
Spiritual understanding and knowledge regarding our disease of addiction are both integral parts of our recovery foundation.

However, if we don’t continue to build from these foundations, there will never be any growth. It’s through the application of this knowledge and various spiritual practices that transforms it into wisdom"bringing ideas alive and transforming them into actual experience. Working with things such as meditation, step work, prayer, mantra (and more) is what takes our recovery to the next level, bringing us to a place of greater self-love, and love for others.
Filling The Void
Giving up our substance(s) of choice is quite literally like losing a friend, a loved one. The substance has been there for us in our darkest times, but now, it’s gone. Many affected by addiction go through a period of mourning as a result, and some even relapse because of it. There is a gap in our hearts that needs to be filled with something else"something conducive to our recovery"and there’s a number of healthy activities out there us that can do just that.
Pain Is Not Your Enemy
Being emotionally present with our feelings is bound to be a new experience for most of us in recovery, and facing life on life’s terms in sobriety can be a terrifying at first"but it doesn’t have to be.

Cultivating compassion and empathy for our pain can be one of our greatest strengths in recovery.
Relapse And Recovery
Relapse is not a requirement for those in recovery, however, for many, it is a reality. People with ten, twenty or even more years in recovery still sometimes relapse, but why? The big four culprits tend to be expectations, resentment, complacency and fear. There is a bit of silver lining to a relapse however, which is that as long as it’s not fatal, it may serve as a catalyst to open the affected persons heart and mind, allowing them to fully to embrace all aspects of recovery, which in turn, can then lead to complete freedom.
Just For Today
Anyone"recovering addict or not"who tries to envision having to do something every single day for the rest of their lives is bound to feel completely overwhelmed; but for the recovering addict, this is an especially delicate situation. It is sometimes said in twelve-step meetings that whoever sitting in the room woke up earliest, has the longest amount of clean time. And the rationale behind that is because it’s only a one-day at a time program (and thank God for that).
Love. Serve. Remember.
Spiritual icon Ram Dass, while not in recovery himself, was given one great truth to live by from his Guru Maharaj-ji, which was that above all else, he should tell the truth, love (everyone), serve (everyone) and remember (God); abbreviated and referred to as, "Love. Serve. Remember.” Loving everyone (as best we can) each day; being of service both in and out of recovery/twelve-step environments as much as possible; and cultivating a sincere relationship with a higher power of our own understanding, are what I would call the holy trinity for a successful, and prosperous life in recovery.
