Keep the following in mind as you progress through the chart below:  

The child is born with much of the brain undeveloped because the head needs to remain small to facilitate birth.  Upon birth the brain continues developing at lightning speed - creating, building, and refining sometimes billions of neural networks and connections per second.  These are built according to the child's observations, experiences and interactions with the environment.  Because the iinfant's brain wave state is in delta, theta, or alpha, these "Lessons" are impressed directly into the subconscious as auto-executable programs.  Also, note that the subconscious will almost always defer to the program that is  the MOST FAMILIAR.  The only programs that jump rank are the ones with high emotional quotient - most notably Trauma,  The purpose of this chart is to map the correlation between child abuse and addiction.


During pregnancy a child absorbs the chemistry of the mother.  When the mother is distressed, the stress hormones that circulate in response, are absorbed by that child..

The child cries due to unmet need, i.,e, changing needed,, hunger, fear, physical illness, and.or the need for connection and love, In this scenario, The mother most often responds with irritation, stress, and abuse.

By the time the child is 2 years old, abnormal behavior is apparent,  The toddler will be unusually quiet with hyper-startle response,  Gifts will be untouched by the child until coaxed.  There is little separation anxiety, but instead, disorganized behavior upon parents return.  The child is socially inept, but can settle into play with a single playmate.  This child is easily manipulated and taken advantage of by peers, a trait that endures until hidden by a tough demeanor, or attachment issues are resolved.


Most notable is the following observation:  If the mother finds herself physically fighting, as seen with domestic abuse, or if she is trapped in manual labor, the fetus adjusts by building a more robust physical body and reduced head circumference,  Source: Dr. Bruce Lipton "The Biology Of Belief"

The stress and/or abuse from the mother is absorbed and registered.  The billions of brain developments are interrupted and adapted to fit the current events  Pain is being registered as a default state in response to "getting needs met"  The child further adapts to survive.  Adaptations could include hyper-obedience, procrastination of meeting needs, and dissociation Many times the brain also responds to abuse by developing fewer dopamine and serotonin receptors,.

As abuse continues, detrimental coping patterns evolve, and solidify the neural networks.  States of fear, anxiety, and even depression can be seen in the child who follows every order with painful compliance.  The child is sometimes frequently sick, thus also solidifying a default state of pain and discomfort..  The constant release of stress hormones results in unexplained body pain and inability to concentrate. This continues for the rest of the child;s life unless changed with determined relentlessness.,

physique and with a smaller cranial circumference,,The enhanced physique serves to facilitate survival in the environment that the mother has embraced,

The child learns to stuff his very essence in order to survive, yet, very shortly, his spirit screams to be seen and acknowledged.

For a child, this results in confusion, anxiety, bottling of emotions, unbelievable stress, emotional and sometimes physical pain, even as a child,.

The fatigue and reduced dopamine receptors make motivation and energy a struggle as the child grows older, which leads to further frustration and anger. 

anger and energy

Depending upon the individual, other observable adaptations can include blind obedience, or rebellion - (Depending on how and when obedience was coded ) . 

Accompanying blind obedience is usually depression, and attempts to bury emotion which results in anger, emotional outbursts, and fatigue..

This is how we end up with an adult who has no idea what their needs are,  no idea how to meet them, and due to childhood, believes his needs make people angry, so he might even deny his needs, 

The constant pain will encourage this child to consume anything to ease the pain, including food, nicotine, alcohol, and illicit drugs,.  

The precious relief felt upon consumption all but guarantees addiction.  It doesn't matter that problems remain after the "High" is over.  The same can be said for vacation.  We don't discourage that.
