All normal people depend on something – air, water, food, love … But if dependence becomes an obsession, makes a slave out of a person, it becomes a disaster. This brings suffering to the addict himself and his loved ones. Today, addictions are so common that every person is familiar with this problem firsthand. Millions of people all over the world suffer from addictions, even more from the fact that addicts are next to them.

  • Bulimia or food addiction (desire to constantly eat food)
  • Anorexia (refusal to eat, unhealthy thinness)


The mechanism of reaction of the nervous system to addiction


Let’s consider the mechanism of action of addiction. With addiction, a person experiences a short-term high and a sharp excitement of the nervous system.

How to overcome addiction


You can overcome addiction, but you will have to make a lot of effort. Treatment of addictions occurs through psychotherapeutic help, a psychologist helps a person to overcome their fears, change their thinking and attitude to a particular situation. Stress is of particular importance, usually because of it and various addictions arise.

When the addiction is chemical (drugs, alcohol), then the treatment is selected individually and is much more extensive than in the treatment of conventional addictions. In this case, the addict is first cleansed of the body of chemistry, then a course of medications, antidepressants and blockers is prescribed.

There are no harmless dependencies, you should remember this. Any addiction of a person takes away his will to act according to his own scenario. It is difficult to give up addiction, but only treatment is the only way to find freedom.


The mechanism of formation of addictive behavior is always the same – that which at first served to satisfy any need, itself turns into a need, and this newly formed need subordinates human behavior.
