Addictions begin with wanting to have fun, wishing to relieve depression, urge to fit in, family history of addiction, physical pain, social settings, or emotional pain. NO ONE sets out to become addicted to drugs, smoking, shopping, eating, sex or self-harm. But once your brain chemistry and emotional pattern becomes very attached to the temporary relief or high you attain on that addiction, you become out of control. In essence, you are no longer you. You are your brain on that action or substance--frankly that sucks! Regaining your true essence, your true self by walking a program of being truthful, disciplined, answerable, and biochemical balanced begins here and now. Take steps.
