According to research 1 in 3 people are addicted to something. Say the word addiction and we naturally think of drugs, alcohol or smoking but we can be addicted to almost anything. Examples of these are:
- Exercising – some people exercise to the extreme, constantly seeking that ‘high’ feeling. When you exercise, endorphins are released into your body, giving you the ‘feel good’ factor; a similar feeling to that of morphine. A craving can develop and this can often lead to an addiction.
- Shopping – this can become an addiction when you purchase items, be it clothing, food or household goods and you don’t want or need them but have to get that ‘buzz.’
Addictions can often get out of control as the craving increases. A possible reason for addiction to drugs is how they make you feel physically and mentally. The feeling of euphoria is extremely powerful which triggers the urge to recreate again and again. It can also be a way of blocking out difficult emotions or the numbing of feelings. Unfortunately this only lasts in the short-term, hence the need to repeat over and over.
