Why are we all addicts? That’s the question Gwyneth Paltrow asks in a new post on GOOP. “Dr. Carder Stout, a therapist in Los Angeles, explains how we’re all essentially addicts, manifesting this shared reality through everything from our relationships with our tech to an obsession with exercise,” she writes. “Yes, addiction is inside you no matter how far your soul has evolved. It resides in your psyche and binds you together with all other addicted beings in the world. We could not shake it if we tried.”
