Angie shares her experience with self-medicating as a way of coping with the trauma of her past, which led to addiction. Her traffickers used drugs to control her, and she felt shame for being labeled as a drug addict. She later found herself addicted to other things, such as seeking approval, working excessively, and disordered eating. However, through practicing yoga and intentionally connecting with her emotions, she no longer feels the need to numb her feelings through addiction. She acknowledges that the journey to overcome addiction requires compassion and self-reflection, and it's not an overnight process.
