Gabor Mat (born January 6, 1944) is a Hungarian-born Canadian physician. He has a background in family practice and a special interest in childhood development and trauma, and in their potential lifelong impacts on physical and mental health, including on autoimmune disease, cancer, ADHD, addictions, and a wide range of other conditions. Now retired from clinical practice, he travels and speaks extensively on these and related topics, both in North America and abroad. His books have been published internationally in over twenty-five languages. Mat's approach to addiction focuses on the trauma his patients have suffered and looks to address this in their recovery, with special regard to indigenous populations around the world. His book In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction, Mat discusses the types of trauma suffered by addicts and how this affects their decision making in later life. He is also widely recognized for his perspective on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and his firmly held belief in the connection between mind and body health. He has authored four books exploring topics including ADHD, stress, developmental psychology, and addiction. He is a regular columnist for the Vancouver Sun and The Globe and Mail.

   6 Gabor Mate

1:Not why the addiction, but why the pain. ~ Gabor Mate,
2:Autonomy is impossible as long as one is driven by anything. ~ Gabor Mate,
3:If you don't know how to say no, your body will say it for you through physical illnesses. ~ Gabor Mate,
4:The difference between passion and addiction is that between a divine spark and a flame that incinerates. ~ Gabor Mate,
5:The very same brain centers that interpret and feel physical pain also become activated during experiences of emotional rejection. In brain scans, they light up in response to social ostracism, just as they would when triggered by physically harmful stimuli. When people speak of feeling hurt or of having emotional pain, they are not being abstract or poetic, but scientifically quite precise. ~ Gabor Mate,
6:Not every story has a happy ending, ... but the discoveries of science, the teachings of the heart, and the revelations of the soul all assure us that no human being is ever beyond redemption. The possibility of renewal exists so long as life exists. How to support that possibility in others and in ourselves is the ultimate question. ~ Gabor Mate, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction,

6:... While nervous tension may be a component of stress, one can be stressed without feeling tension. ~ Gabor Mate
7:The difference between passion and addiction is that between a divine spark and a flame that incinerates. ~ Gabor Mate
8:The difference between passion and addiction is that between a divine spark and a flame that incinerates. ~ Gabor Mate,
9:We may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world. ~ Gabor Mate
10:It is impossible to understand addiction without asking what relief the addict finds, or hopes to find, in the drug or the addictive behaviour. ~ Gabor Mate
11:In the real world there is no nature vs. nurture argument, only an infinitely complex and moment-by-moment interaction between genetic and environmental effects ~ Gabor Mate
12:A hurt is at the center of all addictive behaviors. . . . The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden—but it’s there. As we’ll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain ~ Gabor Mate
13:A long-term substance abuser, a few months before his death, penned this poem: Went downtown, Hastings and Main, looking for relief from the pain. All I did was find a ticket on a one-way train. ... Give me peace before I die. The track is laid out so well; we all live our private hell; just more tickets on the hell-bound train. ~ Gabor Mate

In brain scans, they light up in response to social ostracism, just as they would when triggered by physically harmful stimuli.

17:Medical thinking usually sees stress as highly disturbing but isolated events such as, for example, sudden unemployment, a marriage breakup, or the death of a loved one. These major events are potent sources of stress for many, but there are chronic daily stresses in people's lives that are more insidious and more harmful in their long-term biological consequences. Internally generated stresses take their toll without in any way seeming out of the ordinary. ~ Gabor Mate
