WHAT'S YOUR ADDICTION?
Indecision is the seedling of fear and addiction, no doubt researchers got it somehow convincing that almost one in every eight vibrant people in the United States has a significant problem with alcohol or drugs distinctively. World wide, could be astonishingly higher, figures sky high due to poverty, ignorance, naivety or, and pressure on pleasure, yes right? Grab a pen and before you selfishly consume this blog, list what your addiction might be.
Addiction has been related or linked, most of the time, by people to drugs or alcohol. When most people hear the word “addiction,” they think of the dependence on a substance, such as drugs or alcohol.
Most importantly people should not be leaving their health in the merciless torn and thorns or religion and politics, reality and well being is the key to a successful health. Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed,naivety, fanatical insanity and the abuse of power. Otherwise behaviour should be the ultimatum rather than a substance when it comes to addiction.
People get addicted or hooked on sex, the Internet, or gambling, the desire to experience that “high” becomes so strong, the addict loses control and seeks the activity despite all negative or other consequences. Somehow, Addictions can include, but are not limited to, drug abuse, exercise addiction, food addiction, sexual addiction, computer addiction and gambling. Classic hallmarks of addiction include impaired control over substances or behaviour, preoccupation with substance or behaviour, continued use despite consequences, and denial. Habits and patterns associated with addiction are typically characterised by immediate gratification, coupled with delayed deleterious effects.
However addition is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving train. That would not be a disease but an error of judgment or a mere super heroic epic insanity.
Most people are preoccupied with conceptions that sex make people happy, some have morale and idealistic approach to sex, but to others sex is just like having a cup of tea, phallus implications. So is having a sweet tooth for sex an addiction? Somehow because addictive sexual behaviour or hyper sexual behaviour possibly is a disorder. Like drugs, alcohol, and even gambling, hyper sexual activity needs help to correct it's mentally. Someone once said, "I am, I must confess, suspicious of those who denounce others for having "too much" sex. At what point does a "healthy" amount become "too much"? There are, of course, those who suffer because their desire for sex has become compulsive; in their case the drive (loneliness, guilt) is at fault, not the activity as such. When "morality" is discussed I invariably discover, halfway into the conversation, that what is meant are not the great ethical questions but the rather dreary business of sexual habit, which to my mind is an aesthetic rather than an ethical issue."
Shopping is known to be repetitious behaviour that, when it spins out of control, is considered to be an impulse control disorder. Do you purchase items to avoid feeling sad, sure right, but then feel guilty afterwards? Do you have a closet full of clothes that still have the price tags on them? You could be a shopaholic. A shopaholic is a person considered to be addicted to shopping or a slang term for Compulsive Shopping also known as Compulsive buying disorder.
Studies show that compulsive shopping affects more women than men, and that it can result in big problems, both financially and personally. Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others think about us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves. Have no fear for material force.
Video Game Addiction
The great difficulty is first to win a reputation; the next to keep it while you live; and the next to preserve it after you die, when affection and interest are over, and nothing but sterling excellence can preserve your name. Never suffer youth to be an excuse for inadequacy, nor age and fame to be an excuse for indolence. Sometimes there is only a thin line between fantasy, make believe and unreal tournament. Research shows that video game addiction is most common in boys and men and one recent study even found that as many as one in 10 video players between the ages of 8 and 18 are “out-of-control gamers”, some games begin to feel more like reality than fantasy. Nothing focuses the mind better than the constant sight of a competitor who wants to wipe you off the map.
Plastic Surgery Addiction
There is no exact reason to improve the way people look, man is believed to be a creation in the inspirational image of the creator. The funny bit is people don't see no creator, when they envisage their reflections in image translators. Now this is how it works the created has become cunningly smart enough to create as some people go under the knife again and again and yet again. Exactly people with a propensity for plastic surgery may obsessively go from doctor to doctor until they find a plastic surgeon or dermatologist who agrees to treat them. The truth is, these people are more likely to be suffering from body dysmorphic disorder than a cosmetic surgery addiction. Living in a transient metamorphosis, such individuals with BDD, are preoccupied with their appearance and are hell bent on the idea that they are ugly or deformed. Let us learn to appreciate there will be times when the body will be bare, and look forward to the time when we may pick the fruit.
Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that the creator intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
Over indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the point of extravagance or waste, call that a deadly sin. Yea right, consider eating a sin? There are on going arguments over whether food obsessions can actually be food addictions or whether this sort of gluttony is more of an excuse. In truth, binge eating disorder is a real problem that affects a significant percent of adults. Symptoms include eating to ease emotions, overdoing it on food while alone, and feeling guilty after the binge. Obviously food can seem like a drug for people with eating disorders, experts think that the cause of eating disorders is not known, but probably linked to depression and anxiety.
Some people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they don't get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goats cheese get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle, yet it is said, it is the mark of a mean, vulgar and ignoble spirit to dwell on the thought of food before meal times or worse to dwell on it afterwards, to discuss it and wallow in the remembered pleasures of every mouthful. Those whose minds dwell before dinner on the spit, and after on the dishes, are fit only to be scullions.
An addiction to gambling resembles drug and alcohol addiction. Recently research considers compulsive gambling to be an impulse control disorder, and could be defined as an addictive disorder. Easy come easy go, never been far from right. The urge to gamble is so universal and its practice so pleasurable that it seems appropriate to assume that, it must be evil and yet gambling will always leave it's footprints in others, for instance, If you play bridge badly you make your partner suffer, but if you play poker badly you make everybody happy. Gambling is the child of avarice, the brother of iniquity, and the father of mischief.
Give yourself a minute to think about those psychedelic experiences. Once you've been to some of those places, you think, how can you get back there again but make it a little easier on yourself? Even if you are drinking from the Holy Grail to that solipsism, your wrathful desire for previous psychedelic experiences is what addiction is. Addiction is self punishing. It makes you acutely sensitive, and in this world, what worse punishment could there be?
What you focus on in life is what you get. And if you concentrate on how bad you are or how wrong you are or how inadequate you are, if you concentrate on what you can't do and how there's not enough time in which to do it, isn't that what you get every time? And when you think about how powerful you are, and when you think about what you have left to contribute, and when you think about the difference you can make on this planet, then that's what you get. You see, you recognise that it's not what happens to you; it's what you do about it.
If you're already in a hole, it's no use to continue digging, unless you believe that every cloud has a silver lining.
