Freedom, what is it? Many think it means to be able to do what you want (within the law of course). But that's only one part of it. A lot of people don't realize that when people do whatever they want, they are letting their impules and desires control them. However, If they control their impules and desires instead, then they are really free because they think about the pros and cons first before deciding what to do. Of course this doesn't mean never do what you want. We should enjoy life but should also think about the best way to do that.
Now if a person has an addiction, this is much harder to tackle because the person is really chained down to what they're addicted to. And so they need a lot of extra help and support when trying to recover. But after they get that help and start recovering, they feel a tremendous sence of freedom.
