Addiction can hijack the brain and alter or perceptions, life priorities, and abilities to invest in life. This is what often baffles and confuses people about addiction, it seems to defy all logic and reason. Sometimes loved ones of people struggling with addiction do not always comprehend why they don’t just stop. Or, perhaps the individual themselves cannot comprehend or understand the grip addiction has on their lives. Most often people think about drugs and alcohol when consider addiction, however, addiction can manifest in many forms in our lives. Pornography, gambling, sex, money, even exercise and tanning beds, can be addictions in our lives.
