Understanding & Treating Addiction

How do you break an Addiction?

Addiction is probably something we all feel at some point in our lives, whether we know it or not. Try going somewhere without your phone for a week and see if you don’t crave using your phone after a few days or maybe even hours. We must recognize that we are all susceptible to addictive behavior and understand the best approaches to overcoming these addictions.

It takes about 30 days to reset the reward pathways involved with an addicted behavior. You will feel worse before you feel better for about 2 weeks. It’s a hard thing, but you have to sign up for it.

The same part of the brain that processes pleasure also processes pain. The brain is always trying to bring it back into balance.
