In this sermon, part of a series on breaking free, our founding pastor, W. Graham Smith, talks about how to break free from addictions. Here are some excerpts:

These days almost anyone might have an addiction, if not to drugs or alcohol, then to food, cigarettes, exercise, relationships, sex, shopping, sports, work, or video games. Habits that were once called compulsions or just plain weaknesses, are now described as ‘addictions.’ There’s a new bimonthly magazine being published called Lifeline America that deals with addictions. It says that more than 200 different kinds of addictions are dealt with now by various groups in America…”
Now this morning I want to lookwith you at how to break free from a habit. Everybody’s got a bad habit. And I want to give you nine steps from God’s Word on how to break a bad habit, and I want to use the acrostic:
