Is it possible that addiction is a state of mind that is driven by desire, want, and accessibility?
Some people definitely believe addiction is a choice. A powerful and uncontrollable force that is driven by desire, want, and accessibility. People need to stop giving all the power to some imaginary disease. Addiction can be best described as the state of being enslaved to a habit.
A made-up disease that can easily be controlled by just a simple pause to reflect on the consequences, the selfishness, the self-respect, the inability to take responsibility for their own action, so they can switch the blem on something or someone else.
Others believe the mind of an addict is somewhat hijacked by a demon, it takes away their ability to make good moral judgment. Addicts somewhat feel like ” my drug is my baby, I’d be usin’ for the rest of my life”.
Studies have shown that addiction is a chronic dysfunction of the brain system that involves reward, motivation, and memory.
Excuses! Excuses! Excuses!
For example, it requires a great deal of effort and steps to do drugs, first he/she needs to get money, find a dealer, buy drugs, prepare the drugs, do the drugs, get high, and wasted. Which one of those steps did the “disease” make you do?
Replace ice cream with yogurt!
Healthy eating should consist of a well-balanced diet with nutritional value. Obesity can be prevented by various factors, such as, increase your physical activities, decrease carbohydrates intake, eat more vegetables and fruits.
Join a health and fitness program that deals with tips on how to maintain a healthy life. Eat food that is loaded with nutritional benefit that your body needs to develop, to repair, and to fortify with energy. Swap ice cream for yogurt, it helps reduce the sugar and calorie intake.
Consume less food with carbohydrates, starch, and sugar. They considered empty calories that human bodies cannot digest properly. Man-made fatty foods are not an essential nutrient that the body needs. Not all fats are bad for you but the naturally made fats are good for you. Everything has to be done in moderation. Portion control is very important when planning a meal.
Addiction is a state of mind that can be corrected with simple steps.
Let me tell you a story, I was so addicted to coffee, I had to have it 3 to 4 times a day. I did not actually know how to get out of it. One day, I said to myself, let me see if I am truly addicted. Finally, I decided to cut back on the sugar and the milk. I tried it once and I hate it, I did not even finish the cup, I tried it another time, I hate it, even more, ultimately I stop drinking coffee altogether.
Tell me something, was that the coffee I was addicted to or the sugar and the add-ons. That is the reason why I feel that anyone can stop the bad habit if they want to. You just have to be willing to make a change in your behavior.
One way to control your eating habits is to add to your plate food that you do not particularly care for.
Most likely, you will consume less of it. You better of eating good protein that will help build and regulate the body structures. The human body needs essential nutrients, mineral ions, and vitamins in order to properly function.
A diet that is not properly balanced can cause the body to be overweight or underweight. The body needs physical activities in order to improve and maintain physical fitness.
When a body is deprived of certain nutrients, like vitamin C for example, a deficiency disease can occur. Sometimes, the person has to take certain supplements to replace what is missing. By adopting a well-balanced diet with proper nutrients, the problem of malnutrition can be avoided.
