COMPULSIVE HABITS

ADDICTIONS ARE TWIGS

"Addictions, food disorders, patterns of self-harm, affairs, etc. are not roots but fruits."

—Jennifer Eivaz

FOLLOWUP & ACTIVATION

"When I started in deliverance about 1964, I was like a man attacking a tree. What I was doing was lopping off the top twigs. Things like nicotine and alcohol. Well I soon discovered that addictions are twigs that grow on branches, which are frustrations. And if you want to deal with any kind of addiction, you've got to find out the basic frustration and deal with that. When you cut the lower branch off, you hardly have to bother with the twigs. Well, I got nearer and nearer to the trunk, and finally to the roots, which is where God deals. And when I came to the roots, I discovered the root of all roots: rejection."
