The Science Defeating an Addiction

When you defeat an addiction you've been battling for a very long time, you get a strong sense of strength and confidence. Our brain tries to trick us into indulging in our addictive behaviors with a short sense of reward but over time our mind becomes a slave to comfort. In order to take full control of our minds and live our lives of our dreams, we must step outside of our comfort zones and learn to say no to these temporary rewards that tempt us in our everyday lives.

Habit is a very powerful thing and it is the main driving force of what we choose to do in our average day. Through habit, many of our decisions are made quickly and without much conscious thinking behind them. This means that you have to be very aware of the habits you're building up and the lifestyle you're training your brain to live. If you choose to keep indulging in behaviors that bring temporary rewards then you will eventually become dependent on these rewards. Your actions can become as addictive as any other drug. The mind is just a sequence of chemical reactions caused by the emotional feelings it is exposed to.

By understanding how your mind works and what causes you to make bad decisions you can begin to become a complete master of your conscious. Your mind is the government of your own world in which you make the rules. When you function in this manner you can essentially obtain anything you want in this world, and those around you will notice the strong sense of control you have over your life. It's a really good feeling when you step outside of your old 'negative zone' and begin to experience feelings and thoughts that you only dreamed of as a small child. These dreams were truly obtainable all along, it's just we forgot what truly matters to us.
