The 6 Signs of Addictive Behavior- How to Tell if You or a Loved One is an Addict
I don't know that I had just one a-ha moment that told me I was an addict and an alcoholic. I started using and drinking as a young teenager. I always knew that I partied harder than anyone around me could keep up. It was never a secret to myself or anyone in my life that I had a serious problem.
But what if someone doesn't have such an obvious problem as mine? What if its a behavior that has popped up later in life for someone who has never shown addict behavior previously. Or what if its a sixteen year old that thinks, "I'm too young to be an addict." "I'm just curious and experimenting."
Admitting there is a problem, is one of the bravest things that someone can do. It takes humility, courage and strength to see it. It is not always an easy step. But it is the first step for a reason. And because its the first step, its the most important.
If you can relate to this post, and you feel that an addictive behavior is affecting your quality of life and what’s most important to you, it may be time to seek professional help.
