The Three C’s Of Chemical Dependency


  1. Compulsion “ For that which I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.” (Romans 7:15)

The Apostle Paul did not have a problem with drugs, but he did experience the battle between his flesh and the Spirit of Christ within him. The addict can relate to that very same problem. He does not practice what he would like to do, and he does the very thing he hates.

  1. Control Loss “For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is my flesh; for the wishing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.” (Romans 7:18)

Again, the addict wants to do what is right, but his flesh fights him at every turn.

  1. Continued Use “ For the good that I wish, I do not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish.” (Romans 7:19) As Paul relates how he is dealing with sin, the addict can relate how he has his battle with chemicals.


We can see the connection through the body, soul and spirit of the manifestation of an addiction. Whether viewed through the eyes of Doctors, scientists or God; people struggling with this disease of chemical dependency follow down the same road. Which side of the road are you on?
