I’ve recently completed an article on addiction . Reading this will be good if you have ever wondered about addiction.
Writing this was good in the sense that it allowed me to solidify some of my own ideas about addiction a little bit better.
It’s a clean, fast read. Addiction touches many areas of our lives and is not simply limited to the severe and obvious examples of drug and alcohol addiction.
Our human brains are ripe for all kinds of addictions to come into play. For example, many of us find chocolate irresistable.
I think it is important to keep in mind the basic fact that we are wired to seek pleasure and avoid pain. Unfortunately, that can work in our favor and it can also work against us.
Understanding the limitations of the human mind and body is important in our daily lives. The human body is a place we reside, but it is not our essence. Therefore, understanding the limitations of the vehicle that you reside in can be very helpful in getting the most out of life. This is similar to knowing the limitations of your car or motorcycle before you go off-roading.
Addiction and how it occurs is definitely one of the areas that we should all be cognizant of. Control should be firmly in your own hands and none of us should be at the mercy of any addiction.
I hold that affairs of the heart are also addictions. They can drive you to some very odd behaviors.
If you have been watching the news lately, a very good example of that has been the number one headline recently.
Feelings come and go. They change frequently, often daily. To hold too tightly to an emotion can be very destructive.
