The Link Between Addiction and Avoidance

There is a myriad of reasons that people encounter addiction problems. While some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to addiction, no one is entirely immune to addiction. It may not be a physical ailment like diabetes or cancer, but it can be just as deadly. The specifics of addiction vary among those inflicted, but addiction is a means of avoidance. It is a method of avoiding reality. The reasons someone may want to avert their reality are unique, but the basis of addiction is the desire to avoid reality.

For some, there is a trauma in the past that they don’t want to deal with or feel they can’t handle. For others, it is the mundane, habitual boredom that haunts them daily. In either case, addiction provides an escape, although temporary, from their demons. Understanding this link between addiction and avoidance sheds light on the importance of facing those demons and coming to terms with those shortcomings. Addiction can be a means of self-preservation when past events or negative emotions overwhelm threaten to overwhelm us and steal our sanity.

Creating an environment where an individual has the confidence, and emotional strength to face the real root of their addiction can be immensely difficult, extremely stressful, and a time-consuming process. This process requires patience, mental courage, and a passion for rising above addiction. The individual must genuinely believe in themselves and their inherent value so that they know they are fully capable of moving past the addiction and embracing a brighter and healthier future. This doesn’t come without a price. It isn’t easy, but it is worth it in the long run.
