Our expert says:
Addiction or "addiction" or dependence on anything, chemical or behavioural, is not inevitable or unavoidable. OK, you've led a tough life. You need to see a proper specialist psychiatrist for a thorough assessment and diagnosis, and a discussion of treatment options. YOu don't sound like this is OCD, you're more stubborn and reluctant to change even unhelpful behaviours, rather than obsessive.
And you need assistance to stop the substance abuse - alcohol, marijuana and similar chemicals are not good for you, physically or mentally, and you can learn to cope very much better, without such sunstances/
