We are not powerless over our addictions, nor are we helpless victims of heredity, a disease, a spiritual malady, or a slew of character defects that require the intervention of a higher power and a lifetime of meetings to control.

We learn self-defeating behaviors because at one time they worked for us, and we can learn to make changes necessary to our beliefs, thoughts, and feelings that will relieve us of them for a lifetime, not just a day-at-a-time.

My book, ​Powerless No Longer:Reprogramming Your Addictive Behavior,​ will help you learn to take advantage of your brain's natural ability to rewire itself, its neuroplasticity, to overcome your self-defeating behavior and reach your full potential.
