Signs of an addiction
by Ryan Fyfe
Addictions come in many forms. It's important to recognize the
signs of addictions in order to seek out help before the problem
becomes to large.
Some different types of Addictions are: Caffeine addiction,
nicotine addiction, drug addiction,
Alcohol addictions, and gambling addictions.
Like mentioned above it's very important to recognize the
symptoms of addictions in order to be able to recognize and
treat an addiction before it becomes to serious. There are
several different symptoms, some vary on type of addiction, and
others are age and gender specific. Here is a look at some of
the most common symptoms:
- Uncontrolled Craving and Desires - This symptom
can be general to all types of addictions. For example:
food/drink cravings, gambling cravings
- Fatigue -
Often times addictions will result in both physical and mental
fatigue, as your body will often be working over time, and not
- Obsessive thoughts - Can you not
get a thought out of your mind, is it starting to take over and
effect the way you think?
- Change in Behavior - Do you
suspect that your behavior has changed? Are you more moody, or
- Hyperactivity - Do you seem to be
excessively active, but not getting a lot done? Do you fidget
more then usual? Do you have problem sitting still for any
length of time?
These are just a few of several signs that can indicate the
development or indication of an already existing addiction. If
you are experiencing any of these signs, and it is unusual for
you, I would recommend seeking out further existence either by a
medical or mental professional.
Be smart with your health and body. Your only given one chance
