Sample text

Schon der Gedanke daran hält mich ab, zu tief ins Glas zu blicken. Bei der Entstehung von Sucht muss berücksichtigt werden, dass niemand ab dem ersten Kontakt mit einer suchterzeugenden Substanz sofort in eine Abhängigkeit gerät. Der erste Konsum von Heroin, das bekanntlich ein hohes Suchtpotenzial aufweist, führt nicht zwangsläufig zur Abhängigkeit und auch eine Person, die sich einer strengen Diät unterzieht, muss nicht in eine Magersucht schlittern. Bei stoffgebundenen Süchten wird deshalb zwischen Gelegenheitskonsum (ein Gläschen Rotwein bei einem Treffen mit FreundInnen), Gewohnheitskonsum (eine Flasche Bier beim abendlichen Fernsehen), dem Missbrauch und schädlichem Gebrauch (ein Schnaps zur Beruhigung vor dem Vortrag oder sieben Bier beim Fortgehen am Wochenende) und der Substanzabhängigkeit (das Leeren des Flachmanns, um das morgendliche Zittern einzudämmen) unterschieden (vgl.

Therapie der Magersucht und Bulimia nervosa. Ein klinischer Leitfaden für den Praktiker. Berlin: de Gruyter. Nowak-Schuh, D. (2012). Abhängig vom Applaus. Narzissmus und Sucht (In diesem Heft).

Ein Entzug der suchterzeugenden Substanz oder ein Unterbinden des zwanghaft durchgeführten Verhaltens alleine kann den Sog einer Sucht nicht stoppen. Hier erweist sich der Faden der Zur Ätiologie der Sucht 43 Ariadne als hilfreich. Um einen Weg aus dem Labyrinth der Sucht zu finden, müssen die Dynamiken, die die Betroffenen in die Abhängigkeit geführt haben, erforscht und so gut es geht verändert werden. Einerseits müssen die selbstverstärkenden Rückkopplungsprozesse unterbrochen werden.  199).
