Biblical Definition of Addiction: Romans 7:14-20
This scripture clearly shows the powerlessness associated with addiction. Give an example of someone who wants to quit drinking (smoking or drugging) and has tried many times only to find themselves back at square one. It also shows its relationship to sin. From the very beginning it is important to establish that addiction is a sin issue and must be approached from that standpoint. Helping the person you are studying with to understand this at the outset will be crucial to their willingness to repent and get help.
