I'm addicted to coffee, cigs, sugar and sometimes sex. I avoid alcohol and drugs because I'm aware of my addictive ways. Anyhow, I find that when I try to eliminate an addiction...I always fall off track. I just went 3 days without coffee and today I had a strong urge for it and so I made some. That's all it took...1 urge and I"m back to my old ways. Even though I feel better without caffeine I still love the taste. The point I'm trying to make is that we really can't treat addictions when the underlying problem is an addictive personality. Until my impulsive, compulsive behavior is under control I might as well forget about trying to beat any addictions. It's very disappointing when I fail at something I really want. Were any of you able to overcome addictions after being medicated?
