Crystals for Addiction. Crystals can help! – When we hear the words addict or addiction, our minds begin to create images of a drug addict we met on a street corner or a drunk person we saw sleeping rough somewhere along our travels because of the power of the media. We associate the word “addict” with a person of lesser value to us, someone flawed or selfish to be that way. Depending on our childhood and adolescent experience, we can also associate the word addict with someone aggressive, abusive, or stupefied.
