In dealing with addictions, partial withdrawals are a lot harder than complete abstinence. They are as such: tabacco, alcoholl, drugs, caffeine, sex, gambling, sugar, and food to name a few. We may feel as if we can't live without our addictions, but in essence food is he only substance we will die without! All of our maladies are more of a psychological need with uncomfortable symptomatic withdrawals.
