How to Overcome Any Type of Addiction

Published

on

Our addictions have overpowered us that sometimes we believe we’ll never overcome them. Today, I will offer you vital information that will help you beat your addictions.

An addiction always starts as a thought which turns into a desire which then turns into craving. Once you start craving, there is no going back because there are high chances that you’ll bow down to your addiction. For this reason, one of the best ways to end your addiction is to avoid people or places that trigger addictive thoughts.

However, sometimes it might be hard to avoid these triggers. The good thing is that you can also beat addiction by training yourself to have power over your desires. Training starts when you avoid engaging in your addictions when they present themselves. For instance, if you are addicted to spending, you can say no to a friend who calls you to accompany her on a spending spree.

Moreover, you can beat your addictions by suspending your beliefs about your addictions. For instance, if you are an alcoholic you can quit alcohol by eradicating the belief that alcohol is the only thing that can help you relax.

You’ll fail several times while trying to beat your addiction. The best thing to do is to never give up.

Psychologists claim it takes 40 days of abstinence to break an addiction. Therefore, always try ending your days without getting involved in what you are addicted to, and you’ll overcome your addictions after 40 days.

Though No One Can Go Back and Make a Brand New Start, Anyone Can Start From Now and Make a Brand New Ending – Carl Bard

    The power of our own minds is so intense. Every thought that comes out of it tends to define who we are. It is therefore upon us to take charge of it and not let negative illusion overcome us. Awesome piece buddy!

      yes brian, its a mental illness.
      an addict will always be obsessed with the addictive substance even if he knows that the substance is negatively affecting his life.
      Also, many addicts always suffer from other mental illneses such as depression, chronic anxiety, etc. Therefore, apart from being a mental illness, addiction is also accompanied by mental illnesses Therefore, where there is an addiction, there is surely a mental illness

      By the way, i struggled with addictions for a while, and to be honest, sometimes i still get tempted to take a beer or two…but if i do so, i never worry because i know that i am winning because no mental illness is powerful than the human spirit combined with a massive willpower..thanks for commenting brian

Top 24 Deep Truths Every Spiritual Seeker Must Know

In my article, 20 Powerful Spiritual Truths You Must Know Right Now, I discussed amazing spiritual truths that most of you loved. Here, I’ll share with you deep truths that all spiritual seekers must know.

Most of the truths I’ll share here are known by every spiritual seeker, but others are facts only known by seekers who read hard and think deep.

Enjoy:

  1. Envy is a mixture of pessimism, hate, and fear.
  2. Anyone, including the wicked, can manipulate spiritual powers. This is the reason why ancient secret societies never exposed their secret spiritual knowledge to everybody.
  3. If you fear ghosts, you are either closed-minded or you don’t know that the divine dwells in you.
  4. If you stop caring about non-sense, you’ll have more energy to work on spiritual development.
  5. Life becomes better when you stop trying to control it.
  6. Your most reliable sources of knowledge are your intuition and reason.
  7. The body does not know the difference between reality and imagination. It will tremble when you imagine yourself in a frozen forest, and it can sweat when you imagine yourself in a hot desert.
  8. Words are powerful: they evoke feelings, emotions, and trigger action.
  9. We came from a powerful, intelligent, and mysterious source.
  10. A life of service leads to harmony.
  11. You’ll find inner peace when you stop attaching emotions and feelings to your thoughts.
  12. We are gods in a lower state of consciousness.
  13. You are both earthly and godly. Your body makes you one with the earth, and your spirit makes you one with God.
  14. Many spiritual masters agree that you can feel the presence of the Divine if you choose one virtue and conduct it uncompromisingly.
  15. Loving everybody unconditionally and being thankful for what you have are silent methods of prayer.
  16. You easily attain inner peace when you surrender to the flow of life.
  17. Ghosts exist, I saw one after saying a moon prayer.
  18. According to the Law of Divine Manifestation, the universe will provide you with everything you need to grow in all aspects of your life.
  19. According to the Law of Prosperity, you prosper easily and quickly when you hold images, feelings, and emotions that align with beauty, prosperity, and love.
  20. The universe will only give you more spiritual powers when you effectively use the powers you have.
  21. Psychedelic drugs induce higher states of consciousness.
  22. All living things are The Creator expressing itself in different states of consciousness.
  23. Knowing or thinking about the Creator is not enough; as spiritual seekers, we must strive to feel the Creator’s presence.
  24. Invoking spirits with an impure heart is dangerous as you might end up invoking evil entities.

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

Motivational speakers love advising us to follow our dreams. They usually claim that dream chasing is easy since achieving our dreams only requires us to think positively, find what we love, visualize living the life of our dreams, and work hard. As well, they claim dream chasing is fun and adventurous.

I used to believe these ideas. However, I discarded them after chasing my blogging dreams for about two years and realizing that dream chasing is boring as I always force myself to work, and things seldom work out as I expect. Furthermore, I doubted these ideas after a large percentage of my blogger friends gave up on their blogging dream.

I started blogging in 2018 January, and I made friends with many aspiring bloggers. A year later, 98% of these folks gave up on blogging after experiencing the writer’s block and slow-traffic growth. 

These folks mainly gave up because they found the journey boring, tough, and scary, although they believed in the idea that dream chasing is fun and adventurous. This is a shocking truth many people realize when chasing their dreams. I was also shocked after realizing that the journey isn’t easy, but I decided to keep working and see what will happen. However, sometimes, I feel like deleting my blog.

As well, I usually become extremely anxious when I think about failing to achieve my blogging dreams despite working hard, and I often ask myself whether I’ll continue working on my blog in case I don’t achieve my blogging dream after ten years.

Chasing my blogging dream has thus enlightened me about the shocking truths of dream chasing. After blogging for a while, I noticed that following dreams doesn’t guarantee success, and I discovered that anxiety and doubt are part of the journey.

Anyway, besides these truths, you’ll realize more sad truths when you start following your dreams. For instance, you’ll discover that several people, including your closest folks, will doubt your ability to achieve your dreams.

Another sad truth you’ll realize is that you’ll have to be your own motivator because most people will encourage you to give up. The people who love you will encourage you to get a safe and secure job, and they’ll tell you that dream chasing is for the extraordinary.

The chances of achieving our dreams increase if we know such facts about dream chasing because we’ll prepare ourselves for them, and we won’t be shocked when we realize them. However, the chances are slim when we think it’s easy to chase and achieve dreams because we’ll expect the journey to be fun and adventurous, and we’ll quit after realizing its toughness.

In conclusion, never ever follow your dreams if you think dream chasing is easy because you’ll give up, and you’ll end up being depressed. Only follow them when you are ready to endure obstacles, discouragement, and work persistently despite not seeing progress.

I wish you the best.
