We could be talking about something as simple as a behavior you’d like to change to full on addiction.
The point here is choice.
When we are physically addicted to a substance then irresistible urge fits. Your body craves even needs and it takes a medical team to help you wean off.
However, many times people think that they can not resist a behavior but actually if they stopped for a moment to think rationally, they might decide to resist; having other coping tools in place. I’m not trying to make it seem easy, just possible.
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
- Am I physically addicted to this behavior or substance?
- Do I have coping skills in place for changing habitual behavior or do I need to consider short-term counseling to learn these?
- Is this behavior helping or hurting me?
Changing or stopping behaviors is possible if you are willing to focus and put in the work.
