If it is too much or it is too strong for you, ask this part to pull away its energy just 5% so you can stay more present with it. Try to communicate with it and ask it to show you or tell you why it is here and what is the message that is carrying for you. Keep on asking questions...
Trauma and Addiction: Tools for Recovery
Addictions manifest through our firefighter parts that come to drug us or make us drunk so we not to feel the overwhelming pain. Thank these parts for the great job they are doing keeping us safe.

What is affraid it will happend to you if it stop doing its job? And listen - let the answer comes from this part. The cycle with addiction is the interaction in the triad - between 3 parts - inner children, firefighter parts and the critic (shaming and blaming). The inner children, that surface with the pain, the firefighter parts that put the pain down with drugs and alchohol and then the shaming part comes to criticise.
