A lot of people say they want to get out of pain, but they aren’t willing to make healing a high priority. They aren’t willing to look inside to see the source of their pain in order to deal with it.
Lindsay Wagner

  • When our lives feel hopeless
  • When we feel empty inside
  • When we feel hollow and shallow
  • When we feel as if we are squandering our lives away
  • When we feel our lives have no purpose
  • When we feel life itself has no purpose
  • When we feel we are not fulfilling our destiny
  • When we feel we have no destiny
  • When we feel our actions are useless
  • When we feel we don’t have the talents and abilities to be successful

rather than feel pain, we reach for something and/or someone outside ourselves to numb the pain of our shame, guilt, apathy, fear, and/or anger. Continuing to reach for the substance, day after day after day, becomes an addiction.

Alcohol or drugs do not have the power to create a ‘high’ at all. The actual effect of drugs is merely to suppress the lower energy fields, thereby allowing the user to exclusively experience the high ones. Rarely does the average person get to experience love without fear, or pure joy, much less ecstasy. But these higher states are so powerful that once they have been experienced, they are never forgotten and therefore, are sought ever after. It is to this experience of higher states that people become addicted.

David R. Hawkins

Addictions might be about:

  • Anger. Anger that we do not believe we have the tools, talents, skills, intelligence, abilities, capabilities, and/or wisdom to be loved, successful, prosperous, powerful, accepted, joyful, peaceful, happy, and/or cherished. Anger that we do not know how to learn or acquire these skills.
  • Hiding. Addictions may be a way of hiding from ourselves as well as others.
  • An illusion of “depth” and “substance.” The addictive high provides an illusion of power and depth for the addict that feels shallow, hollow, insignificant, unworthy, and undeserving.
  • An attempt to feel and experience happiness and peace. The addictive high deadens the lower energies of grief, apathy, guilt, and shame, which then allows the addict to experience the higher altitudes of love, peace, and joy.
  • An addiction to pain, fear, and/or anger. The future looks hopeless and futile. Addicts will do something now that will keep them in the past so they don’t have to deal with their fear of the future. Fear, anger, resentment, guilt, all of these emotions keep us tied to the past.
  • Punishment. We are punishing ourselves for lacking the emotional courage to deal with life.

All fear might actually be anger…anger that we do not have the tools to heal the past. Anger is the past; fear is the future. Fear is anger that we failed at something in the past and believe we will fail again in the future.

Addictive behavior is not limited to a reliance on alcohol or other drugs. The roots of addiction lie not in a bottle, a vial, or a syringe. The roots of addiction can be seen in our search for happiness in something outside of ourselves, be it drugs, relationships, or shiny new cars.

As long as we are looking for happiness in the world, rather than in our own minds, we may be in the throes of addiction. While our minds are in the vicious cycle of addiction, peace of mind remains out of reach.

Lee Jampolsky

Is your identity that of an addict? Do you blame others for your addiction? Do you use your addiction to deaden the pain of a hopeless future? When you are high, is that the only time you experience pure love?

EFT tapping can help with addictions. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and is a quick, simple, and painless process to change dysfunctional emotions and beliefs.
