Am I addicted? Now, I have struggled with the typical examples of addiction in my past, and I have overcome them. So I started doing a little research, and I found that there are theories regarding positive addiction.
A lot of people smoke in this day and age. We all know the dangers of smoking and the health risks that are involved in lighting up, but many of us choose to do so anyway. Many people who do smoke also talk about quitting. It sounds an easy thing to do but quitting smoking is much more difficult than it sounds. Not only is it a mental addiction, but it’s a physical addiction one too which means it’s very common for people to fail multiple times when trying to quit.
Living a healthy lifestyle can seem a nearly impossible goal, when our modern lives provide us with an abundance of resources and accessibility. Consumer freedom makes it extremely easy to obtain substances such as alcohol, food, and cigarettes at a rapid pace. Or we may turn to our electronics to provide us with distraction, which can lead to gaming or gambling addictions. Today’s addicts don’t always have to visit a brick-and-mortar establishment to get their fix; online communications are making it easier for us to indulge with delivery services.
