Fear & Addiction Come Hand in Hand
Fear is an emotion that drives as well as hinder your happiness in recovery.
Overcoming fear is a big challenge for people with addiction, and learning how to do it alone is not something that happens easily.
Fear is a natural emotion but can become all too consuming so being able to protect yourself from fear is a vital part of the process in recovery. If you’re not facing your fears and overcoming your fears, then you are letting them run your life.
Addicts get stuck in their addictions all too often because they are afraid, being afraid can be the thing that will keep us using our substance of choice as it keeps us from the reality and fear driven emotions that come with that.
The thing is fear is still there you are just masking it and it will keep raising its head and growing stronger by the day.
So the vicious cycle begins, you don’t want to face the fear, but you also fear living without your substance of choice as the fear of coping without can be all too consuming.
