Why is Addiction So Hard to Overcome?
There is nothing more frustrating and at times down right painful than watching a loved one struggle with addiction. No matter what you say to him, he just will not quit. No matter how much you love her, she will not come to her senses. No matter how harsh the consequences, there appears to be no end to the irrational behavior. The addiction consumes them.
For many of us on the outside looking in, we simply cannot understand what is going on in the mind of the person consumed with the unrelenting destruction that comes from and with addiction.
Or can we?
Think about your own life. Most likely there is an addiction that you are unwilling to part ways with. Caffeine. Sugar. Tobacco. Work. Exercise. Laziness.
