What is addiction?
In a very simple way, when a person continuously uses mood-altering substances or does activities and can’t think about life without it called an addiction. Addiction is a never-ending list but some of the very common addictions are alcohol consumption, smoking, mobile and gaming addiction, excessive sexual addiction, addiction of gambling, TV watching addiction, drug addiction, Gutkha Tambaku addiction, etc.
Habits & Bad Habits or Addictions are not so different from each other. If Ram smokes cigarettes to increase productivity during night shifts then it is a lifestyle boost to him and a habit that helps him be more productive to the company to it is good for him, and also his favourite star Shahrukh Khan is a chain smoker. So, it is like a status symbol to him. But to Ram’s mother smoking is injurious to her health and can cause cancer, so, it is an addiction to her.
Habits can make you or your habits can break you! If a habit is breaking your physical and mental health slowly and in the long run disturbing or destroying your social, financial, and other important aspects of life then you must try to shake it off.
