Do you struggle with something you just can’t stop doing?

On this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, podcast hosts Sam Guzman and John Heinen discuss and define addictions, understanding them, and how to continuously work to overcome them as Catholic.

They “breakdown addictions with a big ‘A’ versus a little ‘a’,” and “discuss the difference between substance versus behavioral addictions and how to overcome each,” the description states.

“How do we break free from that which keeps us in bondage or tempts us to addictions and further comfort?”

The guys also cover these topics:

  • Modern science and Catholic Church teaching
  • Identifying addictions with HAALT
  • Sin and culpability
  • Overcoming addictions with practical steps
