A person becomes addicted to something because they’re trying to numb the hurt of underlying psychic wounds. They don’t want to feel the hurt so they use a variety of coping mechanisms that includes substances like alcohol and drugs.
This is the opposite of what we do in our emotional recovery work – where we open to the emotions that are troubling us so that we can feel them. The judicious and intentional use of microdosing psilocybin and cannabis can support and amplify this process. Having said that, remember that including these substances is entirely optional and you always have the choice of trying them later if that calls to you.
