How Do I Know If I'm Addicted?

The first step to conquering addiction is accepting the fact that you are addicted. Unfortunately, denial is a normal symptom where people lie to themselves about how problematic an addiction is in their life. If you are having to question whether you are addicted or not, chances are your vice is causing problems to some degree.

Addiction is dangerous if left untreated.


Addiction can occur with any vice that is enjoyable or pleasurable. The most common addictions are alcohol, sex/porn, technology, drugs, and gambling. Some rare forms of addiction are lying, stealing, adrenaline-provoking experiences, etc.

Addiction can be conquered with proactiveness, awareness, and healthier coping methods.
