Common Sense Commentary: During the Common Sense days of the past, drug addiction was universally known to be simply a sin, bad behavior, or weak character. Ahh, but times have changed, the Liberal elite experts are now totally converted to Political Correctness and regulated, lock-step thought. Addiction now is an illness, a disease, societies fault and deserving to be subsidized and treated at tax payer's expense. But, lo, unlike other illnesses, it is an illness self created by itself and a disease without a germ or preventive medication. Addiction, of whatever description is, by nature, at its beginning, voluntary, of free will choice. Then it's roots grow deeper and deeper and deeper until it is involuntary, automatic and out of control. That is why we must deal with temptation at its first appearance, that day, that hour, that minute. If it is not resisted immediately, it compounds itself with each yielding commitment and becomes more and more difficult and then impossible to control, but it, instead, controls you. Read the following verse over and over and pray your way into its truth so that it becomes a deep rooted part of who your are.... with God's grace and guidance. This is what Common Sense parents taught their children when I was young... "If you never take the first drink, you will never be an alcoholic". That old axiom is also true with any and every temptation to sin. At first acquiescence to sin, God's Spirit, our bodies or conscience screams back at us ... STOP, DON'T TAKE ANOTHER SWALLOW, DRAG OR TINGLE!!! Violating that warning could be your unreturnable cross-roads of life.
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." 1 Cor.10:13
