The addictive cycle is powerful because you have become dependent on your motivation. Whether you are affiliated with sex, alcohol, drugs, shopping, food or religion, which does not participate in your attachment causes stress and pain and you seek relief. Addiction itself causes you stress and pain, but only after the fact. The stress of addictions yourself requires that you accept any answers to addiction. Of course, it would be an appropriate response that you seek support and responsibility for breaking an addictive cycle. Taking this into account, you often kidding one of the following answers:
1) Denial – You can not allow yourself to believe that you are addicted. You are looking for evidence that you are not addicted, such as interviews when you did not participate in your addiction or your ability to work in your work or in relationships despite your addiction.
2) Rights – You are the reason why you participate in addictive behaviors and tell yourself that this reason explains the behavior, because you are not addicted. You might say, "I'll do it just when I'm stressed" or "I've been in pain and I'm getting a little pleasure" or "It's not really a big deal, it's just entertainment." These opinions allow your mind to accept the behavior and continue your addiction.
3) Hiding – You are so afraid of the exposure of addiction that you go far to mask it. Trying to be too efficient, very funny and entertaining, generous and kind to others or unusually busy are ways we cover the behavior. Our hope is that people will only see the mask and never look for it.
4) Delay – You know that you need to stop addictive behavior, but you say you will do it tomorrow or later. You need time to come up with a strategy. You have to wait for things to slow down. You have to wait until your finances are in a better order. Perhaps you're waiting for someone to say it's time to start. These false hopes give you permission to continue your addiction.
5) Insufficient – Providing an addictive cycle and fully recognizing defeat is the most destructive reaction. This response is driven by an enormous sense of guilt and shame. It can also be a passive-aggressive reaction directly to those who have caused you pain. Somehow, you think your pain will hurt those who hurt you and get you pleasure.
6) Fitness – Sometimes you temporarily stop your addictive behavior and believe that you have completely overcome its destruction. You get a false sense of self-reliance on dealing with addiction and rejecting the help and support of others. An inevitable fall from this position usually takes you into addiction.
All these answers have the same result; You continue your addiction. Correct answer is to acknowledge the fact that you add and seek professional help, support and responsibility. This requires you to believe that you are not a victim of your own addiction but that you have a choice. You were equipped with free will to choose. You can refuse to participate in your will and continue to maintain quo status, or you can choose to break free! There are several specific decisions about life that can lead to freedom from addiction described in the book of 10 living standards found on Amazon.
