Coping with stress, pain and trauma can sometimes feel impossible. Finding a way to numb unmanageable feelings and avoid further pain can lead to a compulsive and addictive use of alcohol, gambling, sex, pornography, food, drugs or spending. Sometimes we don’t realise we are addicted until we can’t stop. There is so much shame connected to addiction, which often leads to a spiral of further pain and deeper levels of addiction.
