Early in my recovery, I had what a friend prescribed as spiritual constipation. I was stuck in the mire of my own mind. I was handicapped by the petty resentments and regrets that come from a life guided by the selfish pursuit of the next drink, bump, pill, or whatever would ease the anxiety that constantly permeated through me. Though, I knew I could no longer drink—it stopped working—I still resented the fact that I couldn’t do it. The Adderall and the Klonopin were not working either. I felt both profoundly empty and I knew I was wasting my life. All these perceived short

Why veterans miss war

Why veterans miss war | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Civilians don’t miss war. But soldiers often do. Journalist Sebastian Junger shares his experience embedded with American soldiers at Restrepo, an outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley that saw heavy combat. Giving a look at the "altered state of mind" that comes with war, he shows how combat gives soldiers an intense experience of connection. In the end, could it actually be "the opposite of war" that soldiers miss? 
VISÃO\\VI5I0NTHNG's insight:

"I think what he missed is brotherhood. He missed, in some ways, the opposite of killing. What he missed was connection to the other men he was with. Now, brotherhood is different from friendship. Friendship happens in society, obviously. The more you like someone, the more you'd be willing to do for them."
