Know anyone?

Addiction is a response to overwhelming emotions—such as fear, terror, pain and aloneness. People use addictive substances or behaviors to anesthetize pain, feel relaxed, calm themselves, feel alive, numb out pain, turn off a racing mind, hide from shame, or feel a sense of belonging. Addictions are used in an attempt to manage what feels out of control, missing, or very frightening. The journey of the addict is essentially a spiritual journey. It is a journey into Self to confront your greatest fears, your innermost demons. Few have the courage and perseverance to complete the journey.
