Looking at Addiction is Tricky...........



You know whats is up and what needs to change.  Stopping COLD or addiction treatment begins when you first reach out for help. You can search the Internet, call recovery helplines or talk with rehab professionals to determine the best addiction treatment for you.

 

Investigate the types of methods that a program or treatment facility uses to determine whether the program will treat all of you or just your addiction. Explore such issues as the following:

  • What led you to your addiction?
  • What triggers cravings?
  • How can you learn how to more effectively manage stress?
  • What physical, nutritional, emotional and spiritual portions of your life need to recover as well?

Are addictions accually Bad Habits?


  • People with bad habits of smoking often feel much persecuted.  While smoking is not illegal (at least not yet), it is shunned by society as a whole. 
  • Sleeping pills are bad habits to get into as well.  They can be so addictive that you need a higher and higher dosage to fall asleep.  Eventually, they will not help at all.
  • Alcohol can be a bad habit if you drink to excess.  For some people with certain physical conditions, it can be risky anyway.
  • Drugs pose a variety of bad habits.  There are so many illegal drugs that they are too numerous to count.
  •  If you have an addictive bad habit, you probably need some form of help to get over it.  In fact, once you have a serious addiction, experiencing the sights, smells, or sounds of your addiction will start your brain in that addictive mode again.  It is no wonder that people struggle for years with addictive bad habits.

A habit may eventually develop into an addiction....


Many of us can use substances or become engaged in activities without any significant problems. Some people, however, may experience damaging psychological and/or physical effects when their habit becomes an addiction.


What is the difference between a habit and an addiction?

  • Addiction - there is a psychological/physical component; the person is unable to control the aspects of the addiction without help because of the mental or physical conditions involved.
  • Habit - it is done by choice. The person with the habit can choose to stop, and will subsequently stop successfully if they want to. The psychological/physical component is not an issue as it is with an addiction.

Put simply - with a habit you are in control of your choices, with an addiction you are not in control of your choices.

Addiction to substances or activities can sometimes lead to serious problems at home, work, school and socially.

The causes of addiction vary considerably, and are not often fully understood. They are generally caused by a combination of physical, mental, circumstantial and emotional factors.

Addiction, often referred to as dependency often leads to tolerance - the addicted person needs larger and more regular amounts of whatever they are addicted to in order to receive the same effect. Often, the initial reward is no longer felt, and the addiction continues because withdrawal is so unpleasant. 

 

Gaining Back Your Life from Addiction

 

All areas of your life will suffer as a direct result of addiction. The following are some areas you can rebuild with the help of an addiction rehab program:

 

  • Relationships. Addiction causes your personal relationships to suffer. You may lose the trust of your significant other, cause your friends to feel betrayed or let down or damage the bonds between yourself and your parents or your children.
  • Finances. Your ability to show up to work on time and perform your tasks can be jeopardized by addiction. Additionally spending a significant portion of your salary on your addiction leaves little money for the mortgage, the car payment or even groceries.
  • Physical health. An alcohol or drug addiction can severely impact your physical health.

 

When you recognize that you have a problem with addiction, you are taking the first step towards getting into an addiction rehab program that will help you regain the life that addiction has ruined.
