Addiction can be a curse or a gift. There are combinations of these: only a curse or both a curse and a gift. It is how we travel through our addictions and how we approach them that is the difference. It is my experience that one can live joyfully even while being addicted, which is neither to condone the addiction nor accept it as being an inevitable permanent way of living.
