It is common for people with mental health issues to have a substance abuse problem - the term for this is "dual diagnosis". Since people with personality disorders have a strong tendency to not want to look at their own behaviors or inner life, many will use drugs or alcohol to avoid doing this. As for control, most who abuse drugs do not actually feel they are out of control; indeed, they will often say, "I can handle it." It is necessary to treat the addiction before a therapist can even begin to help the patient work on their mental health problem, because no progress will be made otherwise.


AnswerSince a narcissist thinks they are perfect and more intelligent than anyone else it's doubtful you'd get them near a psychiatrist to be treated with any type of mood altering drug. If you could, it's possible, but along with therapy and that's near to impossible. AnswerIt's highly doubtful a Narcissist would play around with recreational drugs and may socially drink, but will always drink to a point because they are controllers and they don't like the feeling of being out of control which recreational drugs would produce. A Narcissist is more apt to take advantage of the opposite sex who is under the influence of a recreational drug. AnswerIt is highly LIKELY a N will use drugs especially cocaine as it makes them feel all powerfull. Then once the impotency and weight loss begins they may blame their partner. An N is capable of ANYTHING.

A somatic narcissist is someone who feels superior to others in relation to their body. So they think they are sexy or hot.

Traditionally, males are more likely to be cerebral narcissists, while females are more likely to be somatic narcissists.

THE NARCISSIST CEREBRAL/SOMATIC AND THE OPPOSITE SEX This chapter deals with the male narcissist and with his "relationships" with women. It would be correct to substitute one gender for another. Female narcissists treat the men in their lives in a manner indistinguishable from the way male narcissists treat "their" women. I believe that this is the case with same sex partners. To re-iterate, Primary Narcissistic Supply (PNS) is any kind of NS provided by people who are not "meaningful" or "significant" others. Adulation, attention, affirmation, fame, notoriety, sexual conquests
