Addiction and Depression
Many of those who suffer from addiction, consciously or unconsciously experience depression.
Most people drink alcohol or take drugs to stop feeling depressed.
Others develop depression as a result of their addiction.
Taking stimulants like drugs gives a false sense that you can escape or inhibit depression.
You then get trapped in a vicious cycle of addiction and depression, unless you seek the intervention from a rehab clinic.
People suffering from addiction are bound to deny their problems.
After all, who wants to identify as an addict.
Denial transpires in different ways.
You play down the seriousness of the situation by implying that people are exaggerating your bad habits.
You rationalise your addiction by explaining its importance in combating your stress or its practice as a personal reward for working hard.
You convince yourself that things aren’t as bad as they seem and everything is in control.
Getting into rehab or a professional rehabilitation clinic when you are in denial of your addiction is very challenging.
If you have an addiction problem, intervention is required.
Acceptance is needed to start the recovery process.
