The mapping of addictive and destructive cycles of attitude and behaviour are described, according to classical Buddhist psychology. The framework of “dependent origination/cessation” is employed to elucidate the details of the establishment of a subject/object relationship, the development of perception and feeling, and the subsequent arising of craving – this process then leading to psychological pain and cyclical addictive strategies consequent upon that. The means whereby such cycles of addiction can be ameliorated and abandoned are also described.
