Brilliant article where Gabor Mate, Specialist addicioin dr refers to addiction as not a disease/ disorder nor an addictive personality, but rather a response to loss/ trauma usually in childhood.

I sometimes come home after a day in my shared private practice just marveling at the variety of ...

https://aeon.co/essays/how-bad-experiences-in-childhood-lead-to-adult-illness

Another article reporting on how childhood adversity "stays" in the body and manifests later as illnesses.

".....Often, these illnesses can be chronic and lifelong. Autoimmune disease. Heart disease. Chronic bowel disorders. Migraines. Persistent depression. Even today, doctors puzzle over these very conditions: why are they so prevalent; why are some patients more prone to them than others; and why are they so diffic...

Posted by LP User on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, In : Recovery group 
In my experience the power of the group is extremely beneficial to a person with addiction issues.

Whether you consider yourself a social drinker who occasionally goes overboard (ok maybe more than occasionally if youre honest...), a shopaholic who just cant quite stick to the budget (ok your three credit cards are maxed!) or someone who is fastidious about tidiness (you find yourself spending hours cleaning the kitchen, daily) belonging to a recovery support group can be a lifesaver. Relatin...
