The secret to understanding your addiction is to find why your mind is un-quiet,and here's how.
So you have a severe daily addiction to alcohol, or crack or heroin or whatever. The point is you are addicted because your mind is un-balanced. You use because your mind is trying to find balance by your self medicating. The drug your addicted to works. It eases your mind and brings stability calm and quietness to it. But it only works for so long, then you begin to withdraw physically and mentally and it gets you unstable and sick again, until you use drugs or alcohol and feed this cycle of use your mind and body are now dependent on. This constant use of toxins also poisons your system and ruins your health. It also causes you to change emotionally and you just blow off all your responsibilities in the process. Now like I said, your addiction works, only temporarily and the side effects are more than enough to destroy you and your family relationships and sanity. So what your need to do is reduce the influence to want to use drugs or alcohol regularly, then through daily management you can make your mind less noisy and more clam. By having your mind more calm and balanced the need to use drugs and alcohol will greatly reduce. Most addictions are caused by an underlying psychological disorder and mental trauma such as anxiety and depression. Treat this disorder and trauma with meds and stress reduction and talk (cognitive therapy), and you will be on stronger ground to say no to your addiction. it's a daily up and down battle to keep your mind quieter, but through this daily management of your condition you will now adjust back into society with the compulsive pull of addiction thrawting you.
