The Power of Addiction over Your Life

Some say that addiction is primarily a mental thing yet it is also characterized by the physiological changes happening in the body, and the various effects that it has on society and culture.

Addiction is difficult to stop, not on account of the addicts’ desire not to do it but rather, it is because the junkie is often in denial and does not really want to acknowledge that they have a fixation problem, willfully and stubbornly ignoring the issue which hinders them from seeing their conducts clearly and with clarity.

When it comes to substance abuse, the physical and mental impacts of it are diverse as they could affect the individual to suffer a great loss in productivity, withdrawal, lack of care to oneself and others around him or her, as well as an obvious physical dependence to the offending substance itself. One of the main indicators that will identify an addict is their tendency and desire to obtain that particular substance they are addicted in – and without it, they are affected physically and psychologically enough to impede them from behaving normally.

Psychological addiction on the other hand, stems from some sort of an increased fixation wherein the individual thinks and believes that whatever they feel is correct and justified, be it in terms of sexual acts, crave for things that they do not have but others do, shopping to their hearts’ content even if they can no longer afford to pay the bills, binge eating, constant use of cigarettes and so on.

Recognize the fact that, perceiving and acknowledge to oneself that there is truly an addiction problem is critical, as someone who is addicted does not really pick up anything from their dependence by any stretch of the imagination. The deeper the level of the addict getting hooked, the more that it would be obvious that their core being as a person – their health, their emotions, their ways of thinking as well as their manners have been swiftly eroded until nothing is left behind but the constant and ever heightening level of dependence and addiction towards what they have become hooked to.

Humans thrive by being dependent on someone or something in general, as long as it is within reason and still governed by proper mental judgement then there would be no problem, but anything that becomes uncontrollable and has adverse effects on the body, can already be considered as an addiction. Being dependent on something creates an extraordinary level of reliance that can make the addicted individual lose touch with reality as they move to challenge and question basically everything and everyone they are involved with.

It is imperative for individuals suffering addiction to admit it to themselves and freely submit to a recovery process from alcohol and drug use until they can freely say that they have successfully battled and overcome their addictions. As long as there is a solid support surrounding the junkie, this can be resolved.
