Freedom from Addiction
Turning from Your Addictive Behavior
You’ve tried to stop more times than you can count. Now you’ve given up. Can someone who can’t “just say no” really change? There is hope—if you are willing to look deeper than your addictive behavior. In Freedom from Addiction, Edward T. Welch helps you face what fuels your addiction and takes you straight to the heart of what your addiction reveals about you and your relationship with God. You will discover your true motives and discover that true change is possible—one small step at a time.
