Coming to Terms...

If you have questions, comment here...

Addiction: Repeated involvement with X regardless of the harm X causes in my life. Stuff happens "because" of my need for X. And if I stop, I have a reaction (withdrawal). I can't stop though I try.

Problematic Use Repeated involvement with X. Negative consequences beginning. Can stop for periods of time but return and find more negative consequences.


Attention and energy focused on someone else sacrificing my needs in order to to take care of them causing me to lose contact with myself. Preventing consequences of another but overworking myself. Doing for them what they CAN do for themselves. I find it hard to “be myself.” I look for anything outside of myself to feel better...maybe by using alcohol, drugs, nicotine, shopping, work, gambling, sex, etc. A need to get out of myself.
