I came across a fascinating article that I had to share. The first line reads about how addiction can alternatively be referred to as a ritualized compulsive comfort-seeking behavior. I can appreciate the perspective shift, particularly as someone who works on shifting the perspective of individuals as a full-time job!
Addiction can be a loaded word, especially when you look at is a weakness rather than as a response to something like adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Give the article a read and share your thoughts.
