Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms, Why We Have Them, and How to Overcome Them explains where unhealthy coping mechanisms originate and how unhealthy coping mechanisms get started, including addictions to substances and to unhealthy emotional habits. I relate my own coping mechanisms to this concept to make it understandable.
Then, I share a couple of personal breakthrough experiences that showed me why my coping mechanisms and targeting these didn't work. I wasn't getting to the root of the problem and why I had the coping mechanisms to begin with. Once I was able to understand the reason for my negative and addictive thinking, then I was able to start making progress. I explain how you can too.
