Addiction of any kind is a substitute that we come up with to live life safer and happier. Although very common, it usually doesn't work. Some untreated addictions can easily kill us......that is how much we want to live safer and happier. There are really no easy shortcuts to living a fulfilled life, but it's not rocket science either. Addicted people must first stop the addiction and feel the feelings that are being covered by the acting out. Many find this hard and think it is impossible...but it's not. Feeling powerful and confident often comes from being able to come up with a strategy to stop the addiction. As a culture we hold in high esteem those who can find their own way.
