A man once scolded his son, “If you are tired of being broke, why don’t you just get a job!” Likewise, many parents, siblings, relatives, loved ones, friends, co-workers, and complete strangers strongly admonish people with addiction problems to “Just stop using if you are tired of being down and out!” The difference between the two examples above is profound, and while the first example might be sometimes warranted, the example of the addicted person is never well-founded!
Sure, regarding the first example of the father telling his seemingly uninspired son to get a job, one could make the case that perhaps the son has the spirit of an entrepreneur and being an employee just isn’t for him. Still, the son could (and should) get a job if he has no income and nothing else going for him. On the other hand, the person who is being admonished to stop using drugs or alcohol simply can’t. So even though the people who are telling him to stop using are well-meaning, they don’t understand the nature of addiction.
How Addiction Affects Substance Abusers
A person who is addicted to drugs and or alcohol is either 1. Psychologically addicted and or 2. Physically addicted to the substance that they abuse. Quitting a substance that you are psychologically addicted to is difficult enough, as the addicted brain is rewired to think it needs the substance for survival, much like water and oxygen.
For someone who is physically addicted to a substance; it’s a double-whammy! Not only are they very likely psychologically addicted to the substance, but they will get sick if they stop using because their bodies are dependent on the substances for survival.
