Using drugs and alcohol may temporarily protect the addict from feeling pain, allowing them to “manage” their emotional issues for a short time. Getting high and drunk may become a means of survival: physically, by avoiding symptoms of withdrawal, and emotionally, providing a form of escape. Nonetheless, neither the underlying pain nor the deep-seated issues will go away through substance use. They will only be compounded. Despite the negative consequences, many addicts depend on drugs and alcohol to survive and feel better temporarily, making them feel a sense of closeness to their addiction. However, clinging to one’s addiction provides little benefit in the long run. In order to keep the addiction alive, there are deep financial, physical and emotional costs.
