Acting out

Acting out on addictive behaviour is not about the addictive behaviour. It's about separation from God, so the system looks for a way to connect, and the addictive behaviour is a substitute for connection.

When I'm acting out, I have a problem in one or more of the following areas:

  • There's someone or something I haven't forgiven.
  • There's tension in a relationship and I haven't done my utmost to sort it out.
  • I allow negative thinking and think it's 'only human' so I should be able to get away with it.
  • I'm not meditating or not meditating enough.
  • My actions are not exclusively devoted directly or indirectly to serving God.
Half-measures avail us nothing. Sort it out.
