(THE BOOK) Chapter 11: Heart

About addiction:

More people talk about it than understand it.

That’s because most people don’t know the secret at addiction’s heart. 

That secret is (surprise) this book’s subject.

Because all addicts are control addicts.

And every addiction is an addiction to control.

    Steve, I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying (if that’s the right word) reading these posts. They are all very thought-provoking, and as an advocate for the provision of mental health care for everyone who needs it (even for those who don’t think they do), I’m grateful for your insight and knowledge. Good therapy saved my life on more than one occasion. Hopefully, access to your blog and comments will enable some who need the relief of self-discovery to seek help. You’re providing a real service here, i think. Laureen Smith Sobin

    I liked this post Steve.
    It kind of puts in a nutshell why it can be hard to recover from addiction if it’s a named, specific addiction…such as alcohol, drugs, food, or CoDependency etc because you need to get to the heart of the matter -control- otherwise you can just go on to be addicted to something else…!
