Thinking vs. Feeling

Addiction is a primary, chronic disease impacting the brain. Therefore, it can play many tricks within the brain and influence all aspects of the person, including thinking and feeling. The disease is also about escape, reward, and relief, including from feelings. An important part of recovery is to feel the feelings, rather than think about them or try to understand them. We explore this topic further in this week’s message.
