From the book: Unhooked: How To Quit Anything :
“Untreated and unacknowledged addictions never get smaller. They get bigger, spreading to other substances and activities or overlapping into more areas of one’s life. Addictions rarely go away or dissipate themselves. They must be acknowledged and understood before any treatment will be effective….The void that substances seek to replace can never be filled…Hence the necessity of getting off the merry-go-round to figure out what is really going on and let your sad feelings tell their own sometimes weird, complex, and long-winded story.”
Nu? It’s time to give up those addictions and suffer.
