Addiction Medicine and Beyond:A Day with Hungry Ghosts

"The aching emptiness is perpetual because the substances, objects or pursuits we hope will soothe it are not what we really need. We don’t know what we need, and so long as we stay in the hungry ghost mode, we’ll never know. We haunt our lives without being fully present"

-- Quote from Dr. Gabor Maté's book In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts
