Hello Everyone. I have a question i'd love your thoughts / perspective on. Is addiction a disease or a coping mechanism?

I think it's a combination. You start an addiction to cope with a trauma. So it starts as a coping mechanism. then becomes an addiction because you like the feeling it gives you.

I want to know what does an addict need to see and believe to let go other addiction.

I am mildly addicted to chocolate. For me to begin to manage this addiction, I need help understanding what it is about chocolate, or the process / feeling of eating chocolate that keeps me coming back for more. How do I know which emotions or thoughts I am running from - or and when i do, how do i deal with these emotions and thoughts? Can I replace this addiction with something healthy?

I have been asking this question for awhile. I have realized that one of the issues is that we don't realize that the withdrawal symptoms do go away and that freedom is possible.
