Rob Kardashian Replaces One Addiction With Another

Posted by sherrygaba | Beliefnet

While Rob Kardashian is certainly not the household name of his two sisters Kim and Khloe, he is also not an unknown to those that watch the family reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.

It wasn’t too long ago that Rob Kardashian was dealing with a very public announcement of an eating disorder, at least by his family. He was very public about his issues with the way that the family talked about his weight gain and, in fact, did not attend Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West because of comments that were said. In turn, both of his sisters were very public about his consumption of junk food, but the sisters used some questionable pressure tactics and some terrible blame to try to get their brother to change.

While it seems that his weight issue is now under control, another addiction, or perhaps a previously concealed addiction has come to light. He has been accused by the family, and some unnamed friends, of using a variety of prescription medications as well as cough syrup and prescription medication combinations and using marijuana.

The fact is that addiction is addiction and it cannot be treated as you would treat a bad habit or poor behavior. While there is no confirmed addiction with Rob, it is obvious that taunting, teasing and bullying their brother has not helped the situation and, in fact, may have actually created more of a feeling of isolation and separation from the support system that he may so desperately need.
