What is Addiction - Gabre Mate


New member

What is addiction exactly? It's easy to see that addiction is a struggle, but overcoming addiction is an unseen struggle from within. I'm posting this here to not only inspire those who struggle with addiction to better understand what may compel one to be addicted and how to better understand addiction, and work toward recovering from it. Not only have I had some struggles with addiction in the past, but many members of my family faced addiction to one substance or another - some of them paying the ultimate price. What do you do to help overcome your addictions?

Dr. Gabor Maté talks about the root causes of addiction and how to deal with them. This is taken from the Q&A part of TJ Dawe's show - "Medicine".
