How do you stop being addicted to something?

Report as

Give your heart to Jesus, He heals all. He's stopped multitudes of addictions. He came and died on the cross so that you could be saved and have victory over every obstacle in your life though Him. God bless you :)

We need to live like we're in heaven cause he's always with us. I think we should just be singing and dancing and praising cause we are in the presence of The Lord.

You can also add to what LovingPrinceTamayukiwas saying living like we're in heaven. Also think of it as living as if you can visibly see God looking at you.

If it's just a bad habit like biting your nails, just take it one day at a time. If you screw up and bite them trim off the rough edges and see how long you can get them to grow without chewing on them.

If it's a dangerous habit, get professional help. Some things just shouldn't be left to will power alone.

Biting your nails isn't a bad thing, it's the natural way to keep nails short. The downside is it's weird.
Report as
Fair enough :) It's just happens to be a habit, my daughter is in the throws of fighting. They're still short, but most of the time now, they are longer than her fingertips.

Oh, step it down... and possibly talk to a doctor. I take a medicine called Clonidine for high blood pressure, but sometimes it's prescribed for withdrawal anxiety.

You can stop being addicted to something by first considering what is best for your life and talk to your family and friends. Remove yourself from temptation and change your social life. It is also important to seek professional help. Get more detailed tips on http://www.ehow.com/how_2222507_break-any-addiction.html.

I quit using meth after a five year addiction of daily use. I simply decided that it was time to quit because my son deserves better. Focus on the good things in life, do not idealize the addiction, do not put yourself in situations to be tempted. I have been clean for 7 years without help from professionals or family or God. AA tells you to give up power to a greater force. I say own your strength and do what needs to be done.

Get addicted so something healthy to replace it. I replaced my smoking addiction with running. This way I HAD to quit smoking to do well with running. And once I got good at running I became addicted. I can't go a day without running now! It's not such a bad thing lol. Some people just have more addictive personalities and need to be addicted to something to keep them sort of motivated. Find a healthy addiction, that's all. You can actually get a "runner's high" that is much like the buzz I got from cigarettes... but you feel better after!!

Well, it really depends on what you are addicted to. If its an eating or drinking or smoking habit, i really dont know. Otherwise, concentrate on the good things in life and you are missing at by doing what you are considering the addiction. The first step itself is to realize that you are addicted to something and you do wish to quit it....and you are already there! So all you need to do is think how better your life could be by quitting that addiction. Brainstorm and write these ideas on a piece of paper in clear bold letters. And paste them on your fridge or something that you just can help but look. Every time you see it, you'll urself stop slowly until the addiction will let go entirely :) I hope it helps :P unless its chocolate that you are addicted to :P Best of luck :-D !

I always thought cold-turkey was a bad idea, shocking the body Every time I wanted one, I looked at my watch and waited five minutes. If I still wanted it in five minutes, I had a small part of it. Nine out of ten times I did not think of it again for an hour. Then I looked at my watch, and waited five minutes. Day by day it became less often that I thought of it, untill I did not think of it at all. This took about two to three weeks, and no stress or bad moods. I have used this for cigatettes, meth, cocaine, chocolate, tic-tac mints, sex, and gambling (one at a time). I believe we need a certain amount of addiction. Choose them carefully. Any thought repeated becomes a habit. Be carefull of what music is on even if you are not listening to it. Every time you say something bad about someone, finish it with something good, or "Bless their heart"

Go to meetings and follow their steps! All the answers are good, but you need to admit that you have a problem. You do it for yourself not for your kids or anyone else; they might die and you'll use again.. You need to stop all addictions; like don't think drinking is okay because it's legal; when you're drunk you'll lose your will power to say no to other things.. Surround yourself with positive things; positive people. Meetings; hang around with support groups... May God bless you lots!

you don't get rid of addictions, you only learn how to control them. its like when you look at a big piece of cake, your either strong enough to resist or you eat it up. but you basically never stop wanting it.

MysticSavior00:
Right now I will pray for you and I'm serious. I'm not being a Holy Joe, or think I'm holier than you.

Heavenly Father. Thank you for this day. I ask for your help in this person's life. I may not know this person or the addiction, but give comfort and a peace that you can take this addiction away. Thank you that, even though we don't see or know each other, You are the one that can give power and strength in what we do each day. Again Lord just be with this person and those around us. Thank you for what You have done, what You are doing, and what You continue to do each. In Your name I pray this, Amen.

I didn't just type this out to be typing it out. Just to let you know, It is a true prayer
I'm serious. I don't know how much we will be communicating back and forth on here, but when we do lose contact, I hope you get rid of what is going on.

If you are hurting yourself or possibly someone else in the process, then you can replace it with another activity that isn't harmful. Believe the facts about what you are doing. Sometimes calling it an addiction is just an excuse to not change your so called habit. Life is too short to waste. Bad habits can ruin your life and the ones you love and who love you. How you act and treat other people or yourself is because of your choice to start it and your choice not to stop it. Stop looking for excuses to justify what you say is an addition. It is not too late to use your life to restore self pride. You do have the personal power to change. To be different from those around you can show you are a leader and not a follower. Leave this earth with respect for yourself and your family or friends to admire. Life goes by before you know it. Peace!
