Anger has been a huge contributing factor in my addiction. When I am angry I used to solve the issue by getting physical with the person. I had no conception of the problem driving the anger and could not identify the underlying emotions driving the anger. I would try stuffing the anger until I had an outburst and when I got to that point I had no conception of consequences. I would be focused solely on the problem instead of looking for solution because at that point the anger is used as a drug and it feels good. I have learned that I no longer have to live that way. Anger is a drug that has kept me sick and I had to really spend time identifying the underlying emotions with the help of Salina and SOCD. I have started to learn to control myself and my actions. Once you identify the underlying emotion it takes the power out of the anger and releases its ties that controlled me. I can now learn about myself by identifying the true problem and control how I respond to things.
