Addiction


 


Anyone who has ever experienced an addiction will be very familiar with the 'hamster on a wheel' sensation. You are on a wheel that despite all your intentions to the contrary, you just can't get off! With this comes a sense of powerlessness, helplessness, shame, embarrassment, self loathing together with a feeling of being totally weak. Anyone experiencing these negative emotions is in extreme emotional pain which will obviously further drive the addiction as a form of escape.

Understanding Addiction and the Simplicity of Cure

First let me explain what addiction is. Addiction is frequently beingcompelledto indulge in a behaviour that offers short-termrelief, but long termdamagein any area of your life (heath, relationships, finance and work to name just a few areas). The important word here iscompelled.
 
Addiction is a difficult challenge to overcome.  Not because the addictive behaviour is hard to break once the addict realises they have an addiction, but because addiction is shrouded indenial,preventing the addict from seeing their behaviour with clarity.
