Publisher's Summary

Aren't we too familiar with the word "addiction"?

"You are an addict", this is the most common phrase said by the generation today. But do we know the meaning of being an addict?

How is addiction being embedded in our roots, and how is it destroying our lives?

Is addiction only related to drugs and alcohol?

These are some of the questions which should be known to us in this digital era.

In this audiobook, you will get knowledge about:

  • Etiology of addiction, and its environmental, social, psychological, and other impacts
  • System of pain and pleasure in addiction and how do different personalities respond to addiction
  • Pathways of addiction and discovering yourself
  • Internet and other electronic media as an active agent of addiction
  • Role of therapies such as meditation and music
  • How the teaching of Buddha is relevant to the recovery process

There is a desperate need to educate our generation about addiction. And for this, we all have to join hands and take steps in combatting this disease and eradication it from our society. But before that, let's understand what it is.

Must listen

I found this authors approach to recovery compelling. When I was in the field, all clients had the same treatment program and the drop-out rate was very high. I can see the benefits of this approach which was brilliantly written. This book is a must listen for substance abusers, addicts, and family members.

Saved my life!

When you look at this book hoping it's going to cure you it isn't going to. But that will help save you. And I just needed that. Now all I want is to live here and now and I'm starting to see the present for the first time in over sixteen long years not as something to escape. But something to accomplish.

Helpful

I'm going to spend my time focusing more on my depression & anxiety. Might work for some. Any young adult or adult can benefit from it.
