An addiction is anything that you feel that you cannot do without.
Addictions can include, but are not limited to, drugs, exercise, food, sex, computers, Social Media (Facebook) smoking and gambling.
Classic signs of addiction include:
- impaired control over substances or behaviour
- preoccupation with substance or behaviour
- continued use despite consequences
Habits and patterns associated with addiction are typically characterized by immediate gratification (short-term reward), coupled with delayed deleterious effects (long-term costs).
Addictions are all ‘learned behaviours’. If we as adults have ‘learned’ this behaviour, we can ‘unlearn’ this behaviour.
Using hypnotherapy and/or NLP the destructive negative behaviour of addiction can be gone.
