Dr Gabor Mate explains that any addiction is an unconscious choice
for people to deal with past trauma and stressful experiences – only because they have no other way to cope.
And this is addiction to anything – work, food, success, cell phones, money, shopping, gaming, as well as drugs or alcohol.
We need to give people the tools to cope and heal past trauma – and TRE is one of the best ways to heal.
And even those who, for example, eat or drink a little too much at the end of a hard day’s work, TRE can be the alternative healthy way to release the day’s stress.
“Being cut off from our own natural self-compassion is one of the greatest impairments we can suffer. Along with our ability to feel our own pain is our best hope for healing, dignity and love. What seems non-adaptive and self-harming in the present was, at some point in our lives, an adaptation to help us endure what we then had to go through. If people are addicted to self-soothing behaviors, it’s only because in their formative years they did not receive the soothing they needed. Such understanding helps delete toxic self-judgment on the past and supports responsibility for the now. Hence the need for compassionate self-inquiry.”
― Gabor Maté, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
