WHAT IS ADDICTION?
When we hear about an addict, we often think about someone who is dirty, and unkept, living alone, and begging for money to give to their drug and dealer. However, addiction happens whenever you feel compelled to continue using a substance or engaging in an activity, even when doing so would cause problems for your every-day life and responsibilities.
WHAT CAUSES ADDICTION?
While some people believe that addictions are caused by a lack of willpower, most understand that quitting an addiction is harder than quitting a bad habit. Substance (such as nicotine) and activities (such as sex) are chemically addictive.
However, even something as innocuous as technology- If used excessively- can alter the chemistry of the brain. And while anyone can choose to break a single little string, over time an addict is enslaved, wrapped out in so many strings that escape is Impossible.
Quitting any addiction takes more than good intentions and willpower, it requires help.
