Today on Mastering Midlife:
● Addictions are often the symptom of the real problems.
● What happens when the emotional pain and distress that caused you to use gets triggered and you have the inability to cope?
● Alcohol and drugs are not the only addictive substances we can use
● What will motivate me if I don’t beat myself up?
● There are four major emotional criteria people are going through (where emotional scaring comes into play)
○ Competence level
○ Body Issues
What happens when AA, NA or any of the 12 step programs (by themselves) don’t work? It’s not that they are deficient, but that they cannot be all things to all people. Omar talks the limits of the 12 step programs, how root cause issues drive addiction, and additional pathways to freedom.
