Find freedom from addiction

Ginny Luedeman

Millions of people are affected by the use of addictive drugs, whether in their own life or in the life of loved ones. And sometimes it can seem difficult to know how to begin to break free from the chains of addiction.

In this insightful chat, Christian Science practitioner Ginny Luedeman explains how addiction of any kind can be overcome with the understanding that each of us is already complete, possessing all the qualities within us that we look to artificial outside sources to provide.

Using experiences from her own life—as a '60s rock musician who overcame LSD addiction and as a mom whose son went through his own period of drug experimentation—Ginny answers questions from site visitors about addiction to abusive relationships, smoking and drinking, and hard drugs, as well as exploring the roles of fear and selfishness in addictive behavior—and how they can all be overcome.
