Addiction is an adaptation. It’s not you. It’s your cage.
One of the most prolific and informative articles I’ve read is this powerful piece by Johann Hari, author of “Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs.”
Drugs have been blamed for devastation’s of numerous sorts. No surprise here.
Yet, Hari researches that it’s not the drugs that cause the addictions. – it’s something quite different and this will surprise even the most intellectual best of you.
As a writer and blogger, I dislike sending you to another website, but I couldn’t tell you this story like Hari does.
So please go there and read the article.
It’ll blow the pants off your current beliefs about addiction.
Then come back here and leave me a comment about how this story affected you and your point of view.
Addiction covers a lot of gamuts – the obvious, drugs, alcohol, sex and food. However, addictions are also coffee, sugar drinks, exercise, the need for approval and abuse.
It’s not necessarily the elements that continue the addiction, it’s how you think and believe about yourself that does.
Whoa.. said too much!
Go check it out and then tell me you weren’t impressed.
