Help! How do I STOP this Addiction?!?!
People develop addictions to all kinds of things. They begin "using" as a coping mechanism – a behavior they take on due to unmanageable mental, emotional or physical stress. Instead of finding ways to reduce and manage the stress head-on, they turn to food and binge-eating, or eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia, drugs, alcohol, gambling, workaholism, taking risks, sex, nail biting and even being addicted to social media and screen time.
Then, over time the “substance of choice” becomes an ingrained need in and of itself. They can't get enough of it. They need it more and more and now the addictive substance or behavior, and the results (overweight, tapped out, exhauste, etc.) becomes the problem. Un-reduced and managed life stressors drive you to find relief in the substance or behavior, at any cost (even if it, in some cases, the addiction risks your life).
