Addiction Ravine - Part 2

There are some simple tests to determine whether or not you have an addiction, and they can be found in a variety of places (some of which I’ve listed below). But in brief, you need to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Have you ever thought you should cut back on the behavior in question?
  2. Has this behavior of yours harmed or hurt others?
  3. Have you attempted to cease this behavior, but find that you are right back at it again?
  4. Have you ever wished that the uncontrollable urge to engage in this behavior be taken from you?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, then there is a good chance that you are, indeed, an addict. But make no mistake: you do not have to stay the way you are. There is hope for change. And a new life.

The first step can be a hard one, however. You first have to acknowledge that you are powerless to stop the behavior (the addiction). Are you ready to admit that?
