I very SERIOUSLY doubt it. Addiction brings out your “false” self. At the same time addiction can be appealing. Depending on your frame of mind your in. Back when I was naive , I thought I was immune to addiction. I hit rock bottom before I realized how ate up I had become. Addiction can make a depressed person feel ”normal”. Addiction can be excited bc you feel “invisible.” Addiction can be soothing to a person who has low self-esteem. Addiction can be soothing bc you know whatever your addicted to is always there and will never judge you. Addiction can give a person something (temporarily ) to look forward to in life. Especially in the beginning when you become excited at your next chance to getting your “fix”. Addiction will make a honest person become a liar, cheater, & a thief. Addiction is very consuming that it is ALL you think about 24/7. No one else exists or matters except you desperately trying to get your “fix”. I hid it for years, and now I'm ashamed at my level of selfisness. I know I definitely didn't wake up one day and decide on becoming an addict. I chose the drug addict path but I wasn't my typical self. My brain had been hijacked by the synthetic dopamines. It wasn't until counseling and staying busy that I was able to stay sober with the help of Subutex. To quit cold turkey requires some will power.
