Addiction Quotations

There is no life to be found in violence. Every act of violence brings us closer to death. Whether it's the mundane violence we do to our bodies by overeating toxic food or drink or the extreme violence of child abuse, domestic warfare, life-threatening poverty, addiction, or state terrorism.
bell hooks

All the suffering, stress, and addiction comes from not realizing you already are what you are looking for.
Jon Kabat-Zinn

Addiction isn't about substance - you aren't addicted to the substance, you are addicted to the alteration of mood that the substance brings.
Susan Cheever

What fascinates me about addiction and obsessive behavior is that people would choose an altered state of consciousness that's toxic and ostensibly destroys most aspects of your normal life, because for a brief moment you feel okay.

It is hard to understand addiction unless you have experienced it.
Ken Hensley
