The purpose or function of an addiction is to put a buffer between ourselves and our awareness of our feelings. An addiction serves to numb us so that we are out of touch with what we know and what we feel. Recovery allows us to feel fully and truly come home to ourselves. ~ Dr. Christiane Northrup
