Addiction is a complex and chronic disease, and while it is possible to overcome addiction, it is not something that can be cured or “fixed” overnight. Recovery from addiction is a lifelong process that involves making changes to one’s lifestyle, managing cravings and triggers, and seeking ongoing support and treatment. While a person may no longer be actively using drugs or alcohol, they may still identify as a “recovering addict” to acknowledge the ongoing nature of their recovery journey. It is important to seek professional help and support when dealing with addiction, as trying to overcome it alone can be challenging and even dangerous.
