Surrendering to Hashem Through Addiction

You're not going to believe this, but here goes -

If not for this addiction, I would not have learned the concept of surrendering to G-d and the Torah, which all Jews have to do. The way I learned this crucial concept was, in trying to find what works in fighting an addiction, I found that we have to let go of our own selves and submit to an entity of our choosing who we trust. My entities were: you, Elya, Dov, Kedusha, and of course, the Torah, which in fighting an addiction, comes last. This led me to the idea that in Judiasm, this is what we have to do!!! I never knew that!! Or, I never fully understood what that meant.
