Site visitors asked a broad range of questions about addiction—illegal and medically-prescribed drugs, smoking, alcohol, pornography, video games, gambling, food (and eating disorders). Rebecca tells of her father's healing of addiction to smoking, and goes on to address other forms of addiction as well.

Questions about how to pray for relatives who are addicted gave Rebecca the opportunity speak about the importance of seeing relatives who are addicted as the safe and perfect children of God. Rebecca says that as we hold to the spiritual facts—God's view of them as pure, perfect, attracted to progressive ideas—the people will feel the beneficial influence of these thoughts. She affirms, "Never doubt the power of the right concept."
