About Behavioral Addiction(porn, gambling, gaming, food)

Behavioral addictions are unique in that they are not a drug, but often arise from drug use or are coupled with drug or alcohol use. The difference with behavioral addictions are that they are not always something that you can abstain from forever. Something such as gambling could be treated with abstinence, but others such as the internet, sex, and food are a bit different. When certain behaviors become an obsession than they must be treated as an addiction. These addictions can be life altering, costing individuals family, friends, finances, and much more. Behavioral addictions are just as dangerous to the mind and body. However, even behavioral addictions are treatable in the right way. If you have a behavior that is negatively effecting your life than seek treatment sooner rather than later.
