Addiction is a disease that affects people from all walks of life, young and old, rich or poor. Addiction manifests itself in a variety of self destructive behaviours, including drug addiction, alcohol addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, codependency and even online gaming addiction. For addicts, the compulsion to repeat these patterns of self destructive behaviour, regardless of the consequences to themselves or their families and loved ones often stems from some form of trauma, most often being traced back to childhood. The addictive behaviour is often a symptom to an underlying inability for the addict to process emotions. The inability to deal with or face unpleasant feelings leads the person into addictive behaviour patterns in an effort to distract or numb themselves. Ultimately however, this is an inadequate coping mechanism and almost always results in more pain and suffering.
