My Insights on Addiction

For me with addiction, an absolutely necessary tool has been the physical self movement / application of asking myself questions - in writing, on paper -- immediately after / as I've fallen into the point of addiction - while the experience is still fresh, still with me -- not judging myself / the experience - but diving into it with QUESTIONS to understand the nature of who I am in relation to the MOMENT where I made that DECISION. Asking myself the right questions about who I am, what does the experience / addiction mean / represent to me = what are the WORDS I'm really working with, has been THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT when it comes to breaking through and transforming from the IDEA OF CHANGE as = 'it's what I should do because of how I compare myself to others' --- to the SELF CREATION of CHANGE because I have found the actual words that contain the KEYS to giving life to something NEW instead of giving my life to the addiction experience.

On addictions - I have walked several different. I was introduced to a blog and a theory of etymology, about the word addiction.
"a diction of words" - lot's of words. meaning the addiction in itself is a cure/suppression of some story of words that i keep buried beneath the energy/craving/addiction itself. so the addiction in itself is just saying that here lies a story - here lies words. no matter suppressed and denied.

And to keep having it suppressed and denied (something within me i do not want to see) (trauma/drama) i keep using the substance, action, program etc that addicts me to keep me at distance/high from my suppression.
