The Myth of Addiction
I just read some articles on the ‘addiction cycle’. I had googled the term. Suggestions as alternatives to drugs and behaviours to increase dopamine included yoga and meditation. It is true that clients are often sent to do these practices by cognitive therapists until they fully understand that anxiety and depression are consequences. Consequences of self-calling themselves nasty names along with demanding certain outcomes, no matter what, typified by using words like ‘must’ and ‘should’, ‘terrible’ and awful’. Usually takes about 6 months then you are cured. You know how you got depressed and how to get undepressed.
