Quotes by Gabor Maté  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Not all addictions are rooted in abuse or trauma, but I do believe they can all be traced to painful experience. A hurt is at the centre of all addictive behaviours. It is present in the gambler, the Internet addict, the compulsive shopper and the workaholic. The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden—but it’s there. As we’ll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain.”
Gabor Mate, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

“The attempt to escape from pain, is what creates more pain.”
Gabor Maté

“It is impossible to understand addiction without asking what relief the addict finds, or hopes to find, in the drug or the addictive behaviour.”
Gabor Mate, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
