Addicts are said to often share a number of characteristics referred to as the addictive personality. One of these characteristics is low self esteem, and this is why Schadenfreude is so common among addicts. The humor of substance abusers is often directed at other people who have failed in some way. When a non-addict messes up in life it can give the addict a bit of comfort. They can use it as evidence that the sober life isn’t that great after all.

An even sinister form of Schadenfruede that the addict engages is upon hearing the news that somebody in recovery has relapsed. When any of their acquaintances becomes sober it can feel quite threatening to them. It reminds them that the life they are living is far from ideal. They can also suspect that this person who has escaped the addiction is somehow better than them. When a person relapses back to addiction it provides them with reassurance. They can tell themselves that life away from addiction is not that great, and that this other person is not so superior after all. This is one of the reasons why people in recovery are advised to keep away from former drinking and drugging buddies. These friends are likely to want the newly sober person to fail, and they may do what they can to make that happen – including coaxing the individual back to abuse.
