Perspectives on Addiction

I found these different perspectives on Addiction and I thought they were very interesting, so I will be posting all of them in time.

Addiction is defined as “the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, such as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.” What makes so many of us prone to addiction in its various forms? What causes us to be open to this enslavement? And how do we begin to undo it?

  1. I find myself not so interested in what made others addicted but what made me put up with the behavior and the lies. I seek to make my recovery a priority.
