New Life #92 – Understanding Addiction
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
We all can be potentially addicted to something. Humans are made from an insatiable desire to enjoy, which leaves us feeling empty and leads us to various addictions. The addictive substance of choice gives us a sense of detachment from competition, pressures, and other environmental problems. We experience a descent from the animate level of existence to the vegetative level since the addictive substance both suppresses and fulfills our desire to receive. As the addiction becomes a habit, we need larger doses and it becomes an unsuccessful way of coping. What we actually need is the “drug of life,” which is based on mutually satisfying connections between people. A positive social environment can rehabilitate us and help us to evolve to a higher level of existence.
