What is the definition of an addiction? Most people would say an addiction is a positive psychological experience that we have to overcome. Some people think of an addiction as a negative psychological experience that we have to overcome. This chapter explores the definition of an addiction and what it means to overcome an addiction.
Is an addiction something we can overcome through willpower? No, because it’s not really an “overcoming” of an addiction. We can’t just change our behavior through willpower because willpower just doesn’t work like that. It needs to be a deliberate action. The same goes for the other forms of personal change you are going to go through throughout this book.
The definitions of addictions are a bit of a minefield because there are so many possible definitions. For example, some people might consider cocaine use to be addiction if they think it just requires willpower to break it. Others might consider it an addiction if they think it requires willpower to stop. These are just two of many possible definitions.
This is a big deal, because addiction is a disorder. People don’t just go through life without a problem. They see that a problem is present, they can’t just walk away. They also need to see that problem is present on the other side of the problem.
It’s really important to understand the difference between the two because in order for individuals to truly understand addiction, they’ll need to have a good understanding of how this works. For example, if someone thinks of a habit as an addiction, they will probably think they need to stop everything in their lives and force themselves to stop. But then the addiction will continue, and they’ll have no control over their own life.
The game is a game to explore. You can go and get help, but youll need to go and get more help. And the goal is to figure out how to get there.
When you first start the game, you know that the AI will try to get you to do something. But the truth is if you start playing the game, the AI will try to make you do something. If you don’t get it, the game will start. It’s because the AI will try to make you do something. If you start playing again, the AI will try to make you do it again. If you don’t get it, the game will start.
The good news is that if you try to go too hard, the game will stop getting you to do something, but you’ll lose the game. But the bad news is that if you start playing too hard, you might become addicted. So if you’re addicted to the game then you need to stop playing. If you’re not addicted, then youll never be addicted.
This is my hope that you’ll get some very good advice on how to get your game to stop playing without it getting stuck in your brain.
I wish I could offer a direct link to the game itself, but I cant. The game will take you to a website that has a video of the game, so that you can get a better idea of what the game looks like. But I can tell you that there are a few steps you can take to avoid becoming addicted to the game.
