Addictions of any kind will drain energy from your body, mind and spirit.
Dependence is when the brain loses its ability to feel good on its own without the help of an outside stimulation. The brain also builds a tolerance to the outside stimulation, requiring higher doses to achieve the same effects as before. This can lead to a potentially deadly overdose or criminal activity!
Whether you are addicted to shopping, anger, or opiodes, the problem is the same. You are not learning how to feel better on your own. Knowing how to make yourself feel better during stress or pain, emotional or physical, it a skill that every man, woman, and child must learn. You are not different. You simply never learned the skills to make yourself feel better without relying on harmful behaviors.
