Dealing with addiction.
Additction can be described as a condition where a victim is using something excessively. When someone becomes an addict they dont notice immediately until when things have deteriorated. Addiction can be dangerous since it can transform a well charming person into something else thus making the person feel low from his natural character. Close family members and friends can take time before noticing that someone is addicted to a certain habit. This is because the victims shroud it with utmost secrecy.
Only, when they cant hide it anymore, are people close to them start realizing there is a problem some instances where finances are involved, you start seeing the strain that its causing the victim, they have no explanation of how they are spending their finances that is a red flag. In some cases drug addicts tend to have health issues and the victim decides to even do away with his family forever. This may lead to very poor health for the victim and if not realized and treated fast sometimes leads to death. Addiction can be a contribution of many things as sometimes the victim can start behaving badly due to family issues and also work related issues thus making someone become an addict to bad habits.
In recent times, gambling has become an addiction that many people are unable to shake off. It may seem ok to gamble until someone becomes financially crippled and they cannot stop gambling it stresses them because they still want to gamble and yet they are deep in debt. The addiction slowly pulls them down and eventually leads them into leading a miserable life. Due to that shameful state the gambling victims will mostly feel ashamed and some of them may never share with anyone thus living miserably. Life becomes hard as most of the times, victims of addiction want to isolate themselves and do what they know isnt right.
Some addicts will go to an extend of selling their assets just to get the money, people who practice adult video are also in the linage of addicts. It may seem as if its not an addiction until the victim notices they spent more time watching pornography and every now and then they just want to stop whatever they are doing and watch pornography. Some addictions like shopping may seem ok, until you realize how much finances you putting into shopping, more so when you keep shopping and later realize that most of the stuff you buy, you really dont need them but still you keep shopping. Its always good to talk to a professional if you feel like you need to stop a habit that is weighing you down family and friends who notice a certain behavior change or habit that is becoming common can be of help to the victim as well and the victim must be willing to change too.
