The unpleasant state that drug addicts experience when they suddenly stop taking a drug; a way of treating drug addicts that makes them experience this state.
source: Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary
The abrupt cessation of a substance dependence, creates a rupture in the organism; a psychological and physical one. Addiction reveals its mask in the worst way and brings you face to face with your innermost self. It challenges you to stand on the edge of the cliff and face the consequences. The unexpected depth scares you. The fall is inevitable. The memory of the substance that used to be part of your everyday life, the temptation to return, comes back in your mind in a repetitive mode, causing tremblings in your body. Separation is the only way towards the relief of your psyche. The fight you have to give is purely personal. It is the los–s in the loneliness of the system, in the labyrinth of the loneliness. Only if you are left alone and experience the void, you can regain the control of your life, without succumbing in the unpredictable abyss of the senses and dependence. Only if you overcome your own limits and get lost in obscurity, you can emerge again in the light and breath; free.
