Hi ♫

Freud didn't have psychological issues, although like all the humans, he wasn't perfect .. Moreover he has been  psychoanalysed by himself.

He studied for be a doctor of medicine, then study the neuropathology, psychiatry, hypnosis, study the effects of cocaine ( so he treated his friend ' Ernest Von Fleischl ' who was addicted to the morphine ( he recognized it was an error)). He invented the psychoanalyse as well..

Otherwise it's during his terminal cancer that Freud had 2 injections of morphine, gave by his friend the doctor and psychoanalyst : Max Schur. He died 3 hours after the second injection ...

I think sometimes people interpret very bad what they hear or even read...

Have a great day

I wouldn’t exactly say he was a psycho. Though many people follow his teachings and so forth, it is notable to say, there has been a book written on his use of cocaine. Now, remember this is before cocaine was wide spread and its misuses by random people. It was used as a means for good at one point, to my knowledge. I've never read the book fully, but I know of its existence and what it's main topic portrays.

Do as I do, Take the goods from what you have, throw away the bad, and make your own conclusions, properly backed by knowledge, understanding and an open, but fair mind.

Japstyll3 was correct.  Freud had two "addictions".  He like, many other medical men, experimented with cocaine and morphine and he was addicted to smoking cigars.  He smoked a box of cigars a day and continued to smoke even after he had severe cancer of the jaw.  By the time he died, his jaw had decayed on one side through his face and was the main reason he died.  These addictions were not his only problems.  He had other neuroses, which was no more than what might be said of other people even today.  He had a problem with anyone who disagreed with his theories in any way and rejected anyone who suggested modifications, such as Carl Jung and Alfred Adler.  He required absolute loyalty and argued that for scientific acceptance of his theories, people had to conform strictly to its principles.

Freud needs to be judged on his accomplishments, and some of these accomplishments had nothing to do with his theory.  He opened the closed doors of Victorian Europe.  Although there were many behaviors and practices going on in secret, Freud brought these out in the open and discussed how they were affecting people's psyche and their effects on society, the most well known being that of sexual behavior and the hypocritical lives of royalty and the nouveau riche.
