Hey there NCBob, great feedback and spot on, except sometimes I'd say I'd love to trade one addiction for the other! Instead I get them both, running full blast at the same time. I'm sure the real answer is that they are both learned ways of dealing with discomfort. I saw another member post something about all addictions having at their core a person wanting to be separated from their feelings, which often describes me to a "t". I may go find that video and watch it, instead of acting out, which I'm craving right now.
