4 Tips To Help You Become Free Of Your Every Addiction by LemuelIrabor: 6:01pm On Feb 13
By Lemuel Irabor




According to The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 1 in every 12 teens is indulging one form of addiction or another. From everyday activities like eating; to despicable acts like alcohol, pornography, drug & substance abuse, and illicit sex; addiction is as common as it is deadly.

Psychologists and psychoanalysts say addiction is harmful—no matter the kind of activity—because although it can be pleasurable, the continuation of which becomes compulsive, interferes with ordinary responsibilities and concerns, such as work.

Here are four (4) tips that have been proven time and time again to rid anyone from any type of addiction.


1. Determine to be free






The first step on your journey to being free of your addiction is actually taken on the inside. You have to develop a will, find a reason to quit whatever addiction you’re into.

This helps to keep you focused on the task of getting free; as you constantly remind yourself,

“I’m doing this because..” ;

“I’m trying to quit this addiction for __’s sake”

2. Remove all the ‘bridges’

Now that you’ve got the inspiration and determination to be free, the next step is to get rid of all the clutter that creates a suitable environment for you to engage in the activity. For example, if you’re addicted to porn, get rid of all adult magazines and erotic movies. If you surf the web for pornographic content, installing software that block adult sites/adverts is also recommended.

If you’re looking to quit binging, you should get rid of all the liquor around you. Whether natural (e.g fermented fruit sugars) or industrially-prepared.

3. Resist and RESIST



There is no easy way to say this. You’re most likely gonna get withdrawal symptoms. So, you best prepare for them.

This is because your brain has become used to the raised dopamine levels in the body, caused by your indulgence in these activities.

While you wait for your body to adjust to the normal dopamine levels, experts suggest that you engage in a sporting activity. For masturbation addicts, whenever you feel the urge, go for a quick run. This helps you release all the pent-up stress & frustration that may be compelling you to masturbate.

However, for drug & substance addicts, the next tip is probably the best option for you.

4. Confide in someone you trust




A counselor, psychologist, mature mentor or even your best friend will do. We all know the maxim, ‘a problem shared is half-solved’ and can all attest to its truthfulness.

Let someone who loves and cares about you know about your struggle. In doing so, you not only get moral support; you get someone who’ll monitor your progress closely, and correct you with love.

This is kind of good. The only way a person is gonna stop addiction finally is when what the person is addicted to shows it full time negative effect on d person. I stopped smoking sk the day i was high and i fell in a very big gutter. The image of that wont allow me near sk again. I stopped drinking bullet and other sweet vodka drinks the day it formatted my system, God that day i saw death. Believe me, when you experience the bad side of something is when you start avoiding it. I started using condoms when one werey girl nearly wound me with her problem. The picture of the side effects is bad.. Only a f00l will love to experience the side effects of sth.
