Many people turn to alcohol and drugs and other illicit vices to help them cope with rejection. Successful people use their money to buy material possessions as a means of coping with rejection.

Some resort to sex and try to fulfill their wildest sexual fantasies to overcome rejection, but this often has a very negative effect, adding insult to injury.
