10 Things That Make You Happy
What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while.
The blame for addiction stretches for miles.
It covers everything from depression and tough times to a little something to help you sleep and a little something to help you stay awake. But any way you’d care to look at it, addiction is a killer, a beast that lives within the addicted person and calls to them for attention. And what it craves will eventually put them in an early grave.
This beast will tell an addict things – things they may or may not want to hear – just to get them to succumb to the urge to “use.” When we examine this phenomenon a little closer, the root of the problem is clear: addiction is a direct result of being unhappy or having negative thoughts and fears of rejection.
Think about it. Would you have ever had a beer if someone didn’t first coax you into drinking it?
So the addict would never have taken that first drink, pill, puff of marijuana, line of cocaine, shot of opiate, or whatever else. This is an example of fear of rejection.
Also, the drug of choice has a much-desired ability to mask negative thoughts and temporarily bring the user happiness. Once the drug has worn off, the addicted person is then forced to deal with reality again and might turn to another “dose” for relief.
The good news is it doesn’t have to be this way. Not you or anyone you care about needs to face addiction – even if they are already abusing substances.
Because when we understand the root cause, we can effectively address it and work toward making the change that safely, naturally, and healthily brings happiness, drowns fears, and silences negative thoughts spewed by the parasitic beast whose only mission is to kill its host.
You may be thinking that addictions such as alcoholism are inherited. Truth is, only
