Totally makes sense to me. Another way to put it would be to say that you are not intrinsically a victim, but that your behaviors have turned you into a victim. Addiction somehow renders a person submissive, passive. Freeing yourself from addiction is, in a sense, getting a grip on your life. There is nothing worse than feeling that everything is a fatality, that you can’t change anything to your life. I have been feeling this way for many years, I know this feeling pretty well. We are not victims, but we build our own prisons.
