Addiction (Digital Sex)

Good People with a Bad Problem

Addiction can create deep feelings of guilt and even shame.  It’s important to understand that you are not the problem, the addiction is the problem.  Separating yourself from your problem is a powerful technique that is used extensively in Narrative Therapy.  Our practice uses many theories and techniques to help you with your problem, Narrative Therapy is just one of them.

Addiction is a Brain Disorder

Addiction is a chronic brain disorder. The brain of an addict has features that distinguish it from that of a non-addict. The prefrontal cortex is responsible for impulse control, judgment, focus, and follow through – the prefrontal cortex is the “brain’s brake.” The strength or weakness of our prefrontal cortex determines to a large extent our ability to say “no” to risky and bad behaviors. When addiction happens the person loses the ability to say “no” to that specific behavior because other much stronger circuits in the brain weaken or block entirely the ability of the prefrontal cortex to apply the brakes of better judgment.

Habits >> Addiction

Addiction can be understood as habits gone awry. Everyone has habits. Up to 90% of behavior is driven by habits. Brain pathways are reinforced when habits are repeated There are good and bad habits. Good habits lead to pro-social behavior, positive well-being, and life purpose. Bad habits can lead to addiction which can lead to anti-social behavior, crime, hospitalization, and death. It’s simply not a sustainable life path. As a result, the longer one waits to change bad habits, the harder it is to change them. If you or a loved one is exhibiting bad habits or are in the throes of addiction get help now.
