“How do I cope with my son’s drug addiction?” Tamara asks Byron Katie.
Katie tells her that she lived the same dilemma with her own daughter, who was addicted to drugs and alcohol. The resolution, she says, was not in her daughter’s eventual sobriety, but in Katie’s noticing her own mental addiction to suffering and finding sobriety from that.
“Your son does drugs, and you get your hit by believing the horror movies in your head,” Katie says. “I did this Work, and I set myself free. And it was so attractive to my daughter that she ended up setting herself free.”
