Food, sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, gaming, prescription pills, relationships, even exercise…all have something in common…..
They are all potential addictions.
But what is addiction? Why does it appear that some people who have had one addiction are more vulnerable to have others? Multiple addictions even?
Is it the age old idea that these people simply have an ‘addictive personality’?
or is it that they just simply lack self-control? Or perhaps both?
But then, perhaps the answer is….neither?
