Addiction: Gavin Sharpe on Riviera Radio, June 2nd 2021

Addiction is often referred to as the hole in the soul. As Gavin explains during his appearance on The Full English Breakfast Show on 106.5FM Riviera Radio, addiction destroys lives.  Addiction is about escape from emotional pain and control.  Most addicts want to feel less, not more.

Listen to Gavin answer questions from listeners about the nature of addiction.  Gavin addresses whether we are born addicts and discusses various addictions ranging from alcohol and substance addiction to behavioural addictions such as gambling, sex and love.  Gavin is asked about whether we can ever truly recover from addiction and whether he believes the notion of a functioning addict is a myth.  Gavin also addresses the shame based addictive cycle that impacts addicts.
