Why Do We Need Our Addictions?

If money is considered to be the root of all evil, then what
would we classify as our addictions?

The psychology of the human mind is ultra complex when
compared to any other species on earth, so why does it love
to tangle itself up in a destructive mode? Once more, why
would it seemingly feel right to be in this place in life?

Let's drill down and put addictions in a separate folder.
Psychological addictions are much more prevalent then
physical ones; however, people can have both. When
someone is psychologically addicted, they are obsessed
with doing, having, and the idea of a specific concept swirls

If one is physically addicted, the actual body craves, but the
mind can easily be trained that it also must 'have it' in
order to function properly.

Two main reasons behind the psychology of addictions are
fairly simplistic human emotions that we all have. Self
worth and security are the primary root reasons for our
propensity to become addicted.

Example: An invitation lands inside your mailbox and many
people that you know and don't know are going to be
there. Feeling unsecure about your abilities, you summon
up the courage to consume three or four drinks to take off
the edge and loosen yourself before the event takes place.

This concept seems to work and now you don't just do it
for regular functions, you begin to use it as a crutch more
frequently. Your workplace may be the next testing ground
or home.

Another example is when women seek out the same type of
man as a patterned behavior because they feel within
themselves that they simply do not deserve better. This self
worth can manifest itself into many variations of an
addictive personality or patterned behavior.

What would happen if we completely abolished all of our
addictions, whether big or small, serious or not? Would we
be forfeiting a part of our very fiber, the weave that keeps
us together?

Not only can the mind play tricks on itself and make it
believe that it needs something, but it can also become lucid
and understand that it can stand alone without the
assistance of external stimuli to artificially boost its worth
or security.

Obviously, the latter is where we would all love to be,
however, no one can break obsessive patterns unless they
are understood, acknowledged, and then taken apart

This must come from the person within!

Analyzing your own behaviors from dusk to dawn and
understanding that every action and decision has an end
result of good or bad consequences, can prompt the 'ball to
suddenly move forward.'

If denial skews logic even after acknowledging that
negatives come out of specific actions, then additional
introspection should be indicated or an external intervention

If you let your security and self worth derive from your
past, then your past will always haunt you. However, if the
past is treated like it should be, as a way of understanding
ourselves better through lessons learned, then your future
can be today and beyond without the crutches.

Many of us carry around demons from the past and hold
them as close to our hearts as anything else. They, in
some way, fulfill what we think we are worth.

The truth is, everyone is literally invaluable, there is no
price that could ever be placed upon you. Living pure,
clean, and free of addictions is extremely attainable,
although, analyzing and understanding yourself the
only way it can be done.

Strive to accomplish that daily, and you are on your way to
a much more loving, happier, and content future then you
could ever imagine.
