YOU Are NOT Your Addiction

YOU Are NOT Your Addiction. The ‘Addiction is a disease’ thing is a ‘cop-out’ used in the 12 Step Program. It has a very high failure rate because it is not true. It gives the addict an excuse to shift responsibility away from themselves and see themselves as a victim. Addicts suffer from depression, which is not a disease. It is an easy to treat mental disorder. Fix that and then fix the addiction. But sitting around saying … ” am a victim” or “feel sorry for that addict”, fixes nothing. If you or a loved one has an addiction – don’t just ‘tut tut’ about it, do something about it.
