Who is responsible for your addiction?

 

Outside circumstances, people around us, bad parenting or traumatic events are never responsible for our addiction no matter how much it may seem so.

The external factors, circumstances or other people may cause us lots of grief, stress, anxiety or maybe even depression however that doesn’t place the responsibility for our addiction with those people or events no matter how traumatic the experience.

We alone make the choice when we decide to drink alcohol, smoke cannabis or take drugs in order to deal with the trauma.

Deep down every addict knows that the accountability lies with him alone, so the blame has to go.
