...an individual made a conscious “choice” to drink alcohol or use drugs. It is not a disease; it is a choice. A disease is something you didn’t choose, it just happened. Taking drugs or alcohol didn’t just happen; the person chose to use them. Afterwards this person began to follow a regular ritual (or pattern) of this choice in their daily lives and now drugs or alcohol have become that person’s idol.
...that is given ultimate priority in a person’s life, other than the God of the Bible. Drugs or alcohol become that ultimate priority. The user lives for the next “high.” They literally become a slave to that substance. Their entire life is built, in most cases, around allegiance to that substance. Some may steal to support their habit. Many become acute liars to cover their tracks.

...that he or she is an idolater—not an “addict.” They are worshiping and serving their desires, rather than the One and only true living God.
...“Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin” (John 8:34). Therefore, repentance is needed—not “treatment” of an addiction. For an idolater, this involves switching their allegiance from the life-dominating sin (their idol) to the living God. The person turns from the sins that control them by giving the Holy Spirit control of every area of their life.
