Episode Description

Addiction can be described as any behavior you continue to engage in that brings negative consequences into your life. Addictions have been grouped into these areas: drugs, alcohol, food, sex, and money. Clearly no one is immune; addiction affects people of all ages, races, classes and professions. Until recently people thought that an addict was a person hooked on some kind of drug. There has been an increase in awareness of the problem, which makes it easier to accept the idea of having an addictive personality. Generally speaking, an addict has a hard time setting limits on enjoyable activities; often when they quit one addiction, another one surfaces. Active addiction is never about alcohol, food, money, sex, or drugs; it is about being driven by the feeling that you get from engaging in the behavior. There are healthy ways to meet the needs that drive addictive behaviors. Tune in this week for tips about what to watch out for if you have an addiction or an addictive personality.
