Addictions

Addiction means you can’t control your own behaviour and you see this as what’s standing between success and failure.  You definitely don’t want it that way, you want to change, but you don’t! Does this sound like YOU?

Addiction might reach a point at which it’s harmful causing physical, mental, relationship and financial problems.  Virtually anything can turn into an addiction such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, exercise, shopping, food, sugar, coke cola, caffeine, chocolate, video games, social media, mobile phones and pain.

  • A strong desire/craving to use or engage in the behaviour.
  • Inability to accomplish duties at school, work, or at home.
