Not knowing much about you, but welcome to AAG, We all have problems, and habits that we wish God would just take them away with a little prayer. However, there is a part that we need to play in our deliverance from these bad habits. Can God take them away? Definitely! I’d rather say that God HAS taken them away, according to the Word. We just need to know how to receive that which He has already given us. As you can see from the following scriptures. And my prayer for you will be the last one Eph 1:17-23. We must believe what the Word of God teaches.
Though I quote these all the time when I need a little pick-me-up, but here I copied and pasted so you will know for sure they are in the Word, and not conjecture on my part.
The Word says, John 8:31-32 (KJV) 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
2 Peter 1:2-3 (KJV) 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Proverbs 2:1-9 (KJV) 1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; 3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. 7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. 8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. 9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
Ephesians 1:17-23 (KJV) 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
If you don’t fully understand what He is saying here, I will be more than happy to explain them.
I will pray for you too, along side James Welter.

May God give you the strength to overcome this habit. We are all human and the devil loves when we fall back into sin. Will keep you in my prayers. God is good all the time and all the time God is good. Continue to read the bible and ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen you. May God give you the wisdom and understanding. Remember the devil is a liar.
I pray in the name of Jesus every spirt of addiction will leave!
