There are so many different kinds of addictions. Some people love video games, while others can’t get enough of reading. The idea is that everyone has their own preferences and interests, whether it comes to hobbies or vices. This is why it can be so difficult to know whether you’re addicted to something.
If you suspect that you might have a problem with something, look out for these signs:
You’ve made Poor Decisions based on Your Addiction
There are a lot of decisions based on addiction, not just financial ones. If people are constantly making poor decisions based on their addiction, this is because they become so focused on getting their next fix that anything else seems irrelevant.
The decision to get help is something that will affect the rest of your life, so it’s important to think about this. If you find that you’ve made a lot of decisions based on your addiction, it’s worth thinking about getting help.
You want to Quit, but Struggle to do so
This is where people are doing everything they can to quit their substance use. They’re listening to advice from friends and family, are doing a self-help program, and/or are seeing a counselor.
When you want to quit and can’t, it means that you’re struggling to control your addiction.
You have a problem when you feel that you need the substance to feel normal. This is at the very core of addiction.
