If you look in the dictionary, the definition of addiction is being unable to control a behaviour that is psychologically or physically habit forming. Gaining control of your addictions is possible through professional hypnotherapy in Los Angeles. Knowing about addiction and being able to detect the warning signs will help you to decipher the difference between healthy and addictive or problematic behaviour.
Compulsive activities such as eating or shopping too much, and watching endless amounts of television are now recognized as addictive habits too. Just as addictive as taking drugs, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, gambling beyond your limit and having too much sex. It can be hard for the average person to understand how even simple and legal activities such as shopping, eating, watching television and exercising become addictions.
You might not see the warning signs for a particular addiction, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have one. If a behaviour becomes a problem in your life, and you can’t stop doing it, then you are addicted. There are lots of people who are shopaholics and think nothing of running out to the mall and maxing out their credit cards. Have you started to cover up or hide the amount of food that you are eating? These are signs that you might have an addiction.
Gaining control of your habits is essential to having a happy and balanced life. Remember that becoming addicted can happen to anybody. Your age, race or gender has nothing to do with it. It’s a forceful and controlling behaviour pattern that will leave you feeling broke and lonely. Don’t feel helpless or ashamed because change is possible. If you have an addiction you wish to change, then contact a Los Angeles hypnotherapist for help. Take control of your life.
