Once an addict, always an addict?

I think there's always that ache for it that never fully goes away, even if you've been clean for decades.
That's my opinion, from my experience with a few alcoholics I know, anyway. I don't have any first hand experience will addiction to other substances.

I believe God can cure a person of ANYTHING ....I also believe that sometimes people just leave the need for something behind in their lives and never truly desire it again...

I truly believe that if you have been an addict in the past it's a little like cancer.
You might be in remission, but the possibility is always there, and it's always going to be slightly more likely to happen to you than someone else.
That also just means that those that have battled addiction in the past will often be more compassionate and less judging...

I believe the temptation may be there forever, there may be a vulnerability, but it is possible for people to beat addiction.

LIke really, really beat it? Like not just go from one addiction (no matter harmless it seems like FB or whatever) to another?

My mum quick smoking over 2 decades ago, my father quit 3 decades ago yet both have said if they picked one up, they would have a hard time stopping.

Yes I believe someone can be cured of an addiction. I believe it takes more than will power... I was in AA for a while because I was an alcoholic. I truly believe I was an alcoholic and am very grateful for AA. It lead me on a spiritual pathway. I am no longer in AA and no longer an alcoholic...
