An addiction is anything that brings us away from pain and towards pleasure, gives short-term relief and creates problems in our lives.
Addictions can be various: the typical ones food, alcohol, sex, drugs, of course. Technology addiction is also becoming more and more prominent in today’s world.
Addictions are not a choice, and it’s not a genetic disorder.
It’s an avoidance mechanism, a way to escape reality because reality is too difficult to handle.
I want you to know that an addiction you have been struggling with is not your fault. But it can be changed. Only you have the power to decide to change it.
If you are looking to explore the reasons for your addiction, heal the trauma that lies beneath it and create a better life for yourself (and those around you), give me a call today.
