What is behavioral addiction
Addiction is a term used to describe a physical, psychological and or emotional dependency on a particular substance, act, ritual or behaviour. Addiction presents itself in many different forms, the most common of which is the dependency on illicit or prescribed drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Addiction roots are located predominantly in stress and anxiety disorders, and addictive behaviours serve as a temporary relief to these symptoms.
Addiction can develop quickly or over a long period of time. The person loses control and the ability to stop when they had planned to. The substance or behaviour begins to control and manipulate the person’s life. People are often referred to as being an ‘addict’ and having an ‘addiction’ once this pattern of behaviour has taken root. In its most chronic state, the addicts’ main purpose, function and desire is to ‘feed’ the addiction. This cultivates an endless cycle of unhealthy behaviour which triggers an overwhelming sense to ‘use more, more frequently’ in order to feel satisfied. This ‘using’ behaviour becomes the only means of pleasure or ‘escape’ for the addict.
Eventually addiction causes an often-devastating impact on all areas of life, resulting in chronic health conditions, poor social engagement, isolation, work problems, family and relationship breakdown, a chaotic lifestyle, debt or financial problems.
