No amount of reasons will stop me.

That's because I am blessed with an obsession.

An obsession will override any reason or logic.

The only solution that works for me is the spiritual one.

The spiritual solution removes the obsession.

Please don't ask me to explain it.

It is something that has to be experienced, not explained.

Can I explain to you what chocolate tastes like?

No. You have to taste it and then you'll know.

For those who identify as an addict I have the 12 step program to recommend. 

Nothing else.

Say no because the happiness and relief you feel when the urge passes and you move onto something else without having acted out, is a million times greater than whatever you could have felt during the extremely brief period of acting out.

Firstly, follow instructions please.

Secondly, yes the pleasure of the urge passing is nice, but the pleasure of acting out, especially if one prolongs it and enjoys the chase, that's pretty thrilling as well.

Sadly, I'm sober for several years and haven't experienced that joy in some time.
I'm all about that (substantial) bass, no trouble ....

You haven't dealt with utterly depressive and disgusting feeling when you do act out, that should also be part of the equation.
