GENERAL ADVICE

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.

    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
