A Life Free from Addiction is Possible
In today’s modern world, addiction can take on many different guises. While most people are familiar with addictions to substances such as illegal drugs, alcohol, nicotine and gambling, it is also possible to become addicted to prescription medication, food, sex, shopping, spending, television, and even the internet.
Whatever the addiction, the symptoms and behaviours that result from that addiction can cause untold anxiety and stress for an individual, and also for their family, friends and colleagues. Far too often, people that struggle with an addiction of any sort are stigmatized and labelled. This, along with the physical symptoms of addiction, can make it extremely difficult for that person to overcome their problems.
Why do people become addicted?
What causes a person to become addicted to a substance or behaviour is a matter of debate. Some psychologists describe an addictive personality type whereas another school of thought suggests that the root cause of addiction is in a person’s attempt to fulfill an inner need through an external source or substance. Another cause of addiction could be an attempt by a person to anesthetise or dull inner emotional pain caused by a traumatic incident or life experience.
Most people, at any given time, are searching for something to fulfill them in some way. People seek love, money, attention, gratification, validation – the list is endless. However, life as we know it today has become fixated on external pleasures. For example, new possessions, a job with status, the ‘perfect’ relationship, etc.
When we seek fulfillment from a source outside of ourselves, we are entering a losing game; possessions, status or another person will never be able to fill any void within us completely. So we carry on searching, buying, consuming or using in a desperate attempt to eventually fill the void.
But know this: emotional freedom begins on the inside.
We can look within ourselves to find the sense of fulfillment that each and every one of us desires. When you turn within, you may find that, at long last, you are searching in the right place.
