Gabor Mate says that hurt is at the center of all addictive behaviors. The action of escaping pain leads us to additional pain. Pain will lead us to seek comfort in whatever substance, action, idea or pattern we’ve learned to cope with life. Addiction is an avoidance that became a hinderance. What are we avoiding? Why are we avoiding? Like a moth to flame we are attracted to the light. Addictions are the fires. Our hurt is the kindling.

The waters of trauma, abandonment, self sabotage, grief can drag you under. If you drink that water it can not just make you sick. It can drown you. If there is blood in the water you can cause a vicious attack or a feeding frenzy. Don't drink the water, be like water

Water is the most versatile resource we have. It can water our crops, cut through the hardest walls. It will always find the path of least resistance.To survive life waters you learn to surf or build a boat. You don't need a bigger boat, just a better boat. 

Being in the water and staying buoyant means letting go. Giving yourself to the current and wave. Fighting it causes you to lose energy and be heavier. That will sink you like a rock. Learn to skim the environment. 

Always remember we create our reality. You asked for this boat. Maybe thinking you wouldn't fall out. Forgetting to ask for a life preserver. Give yourself to the current and don't fight. Learn to sail, surf or swim. Don't drown.
