When a need turns into a vice/vice turns into an addiction

When we’re overwhelmed sometimes people will turn to certain things for comfort, like food, sleeping, alcohol or drugs.  When a person begins to abuse these things, that’s when they’re refusing to deal with their turmoil and simply hiding from it.  That’s unhealthy mentally and physically and can lead to fatal results (high blood pressure, diabetes, bed sores, muscle atrophy, alcohol poisoning, and overdosing).  The moment a trial approaches and you’re looking for things like food, alcohol, sleep, or drugs to help calm you, that’s not a very good sign.
