Salam Alaikum wa Taala here but I care to spell out hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah salam wa sallam. So today's episode is about addictions, this is my thing is my passion, addictions are like battles, they are not fought only once remember this, they are not fought only once,

00:00:25--> 00:01:08

you may need to return to the battlefield more than once to clean your mess. So keep on fighting. So remember this there are many, many people are addicted to various things, whether it's with a soft substance or behavior. So as we mentioned, in so many episodes before, in the past on you know, in many lectures, I said that addictions follows the same pattern. So, you know, whether you're addicted to substance or behavior, the brain does not really differentiate the the impact might be stronger from one substance or behavior to another, but they all follow the same pathways. What I wanted to say here is that you may become sober for a month for two for three, and then you feel

00:01:09--> 00:01:53

relaxed, you feel very happy with the achievement which is great, but maintain that lifestyle which led you to become sober. Otherwise, if you go back to your old lifestyle, it is easier to relapse than anything you could imagine. Because addictions does not disappear in your brain. The pathways that you have created through your addictions will remain there for life. What you could do though, is to weaken those pathways and you weaken them by new lifestyle by new healthy habits and so on. So maintain that lifestyle and fight your, your your attempts or your desires to go back to your old lifestyle, even for a minute even for the day, or else you will relapse and go back to where you

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

have started. So don't ruin what you have achieved may have lost planet Allah bless you. And may Allah smart Allah keep you all clean and pure me
