Dealing with Addiction
Describing addiction as merely a “disease” doesn’t capture the full picture—it’s a surface-level label that addresses symptoms without diving into the underlying issues. While it’s true that drugs and alcohol impact the brain and behavior, these changes make it incredibly challenging for individuals to break free from substance use.
Addiction often stems from deeper personal struggles. People may initially turn to substances as a way to cope with internal issues like a need for love, success, forgiveness, belonging, acceptance, a spiritual void, or a lack of life purpose. Using drugs or alcohol becomes a temporary escape from mental anguish, but over time, it develops into a powerful dependency that robs individuals of their ability to quit independently. Attempts to stop can result in painful and sometimes life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.
Once addiction takes hold, it can completely dominate an individual’s thoughts and actions, making it difficult for them to quit on their own. The pursuit of substances may lead to destructive behaviors such as theft or drug selling, often resulting in legal consequences. The need for more significant quantities or more frequent use to achieve the same effect can escalate until the individual faces the risk of overdose or severe harm to their body.
