What is it that causes survivors to run away from loving, healthy relationships and love, and turn to self destructive behavior (ie: drinking, drugs, promiscuity, unhealthy relationships).

I'm glad you asked this. I have been wondering about this since I have been exposed to it here. (I didn't know much about CSA issues, other than a few of my own) I would have thought that if I had a loving relationship I would be home free. I could guess at reasons but I don't really understand.

I wonder if I had been lucky enough to get someone attached to me would she be here eventually trying to deal with the same issues?
