In a safe environment together facing any obstacle or pain. The first thing that addiction does is take away our awareness, and places us in an illusion. The illusion can be short or long depending on the substance and our emotional state. Drugs and alcohol lock us in a never-ending cycle of craving and aversion that keeps us from accessing the very dimension of self-awareness, a pause is required to transcend it.  Addiction starts with a reason not a substance

After much life experience, we develop habits in the mind called Samskaras.  Samskaras are ruts or grooves of habit cut into our head by recollections, impressions and psychological imprints.  Addiction is the ultimate samskara. Addiction is a groove that we fall back on subconsciously over and over again to solve the problem of the intensity and discomfort of present moment. The problem of addiction cannot be solved in the realm of the known.

We have to have a completely new experience that overshadows the habit, solutions, comfort and understanding of the mind. Meaning don’t be too hard on yourself, lets exchange addiction for new ways, with more uplifting actions and practice that will have long time effect of real joy, sustainable joy and mostly love. 
To be loved and love, is the greatest healing available to us, but you need to do the work!
