Effects of Addiction : 5 Min. Podcast
Have you ever sat down and wondered how the effects of addiction have manifested on yourself – physically and mentally?
There may be a number of effects of addiction : apathy, a draining of internal resources, health, (for example diabetes), a lack of motivation, a lack of commitment, a lack of grit. Have you become socially withdrawn, introverted, emotionally numb, hypervigilant or distracted ? Are you unable to be present in your life ?
What solutions have you looked at to manage the effects of your addiction ?
Have you perhaps looked at Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), spiritual solutions, have you asked for help ? The best way to find a solution in these circumstances is to ask for help – seek guidance from someone who has walked this path successfully themselves.
This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
