The Complete Guide To Understanding And Tackling Addiction.
What we know about the workings of the human brain has increased immeasurably in recent times. We now know exactly which parts of the brain react when we feel panicked, depressed, or overwhelmed emotionally. It is this new science which can help us to understand how our brain generates the feelings we experience and, in turn, how we can control those feelings.
Addiction is a wide-ranging condition where sufferers are compulsively occupied with an activity, habit or substance. Shopping addiction, for example, has been recognised as one of the fastest growing addictions, currently affecting 1 in 30 adults. This book explains the physiological basis of all forms of addiction, helping us to understand what lies at the root of a specific compulsion. Advice on drugs and cognitive therapy exercises are included to help sufferers tackle their addictions as fully and independently as possible.
