Can gastric bypass fuel alcoholism?
"I started practicing the disease with food." Well said, Craig. (And thanks for the shout out.)
Thompson later told Dr. Drew, “I love being comfortable. When I'm uncomfortable, that's when things get scary. And when I'm uncomfortable, that's when I look for something to stabilize that level of anxiety. And since I didn't know how to do it internally, I looked for external factors to do it -- whether it was a substance or a relationship -- and one of the things that we're seeing, probably even more than alcohol, is sexual acting out.”
- “There's a piece here that we miss, which is dealing with the underlying emotional regulation issues often built on trauma.”
