Hey guys. So I just had a quick question, because I think this is something it would help to hear others express too. I've had a lot of addictions in my life, ranging from self-injury to alcohol, cigarettes, and life-risking stunts. Through the years I've kind of come to the conclusion it's not any of the individual things that I really find so appealing. It's the feel of dependency. I've lost of lot of people I was close to, and don't really trust anyone. I think the substances themselves help get me through those times, but I also think knowing there's something that won't leave me, and that I can always go back to (even if I don't want to any more), is very comforting. Do others feel this way? That it's actually the process of being swallowed by something that's so intoxicating? Any suggestions on how to work on the root of the problem? I've tried therapy before, but it never really hit the spot. I just feel empty all the time, unless I'm filling up on something bad for me.
