The individual attempts to fill a spiritual void with physical objects or pleasures. These give very temporary relief, but never satisfy the deeper spiritual craving. Rabbi Pinchas Taylor reminds us that the addiction itself is not the addict’s problem, it’s his attempted solution. The only true solution is to treat the spiritual void.
