What is behavioral addiction
Behavioral addiction is a term used to describe a physical, psychological and or emotional dependency on an act, ritual or behavior. Behavioral addiction presents itself in many different forms, the most common of which is the dependency on gambling, gaming, social media, smartphone, work, digital media, shopping, exercise and many more. Behavioral addiction roots are located predominantly in stress and anxiety disorders, and addictive behaviors serve as a temporary relief to these symptoms.
Behavioral addiction can develop quickly or over a long period of time. The person loses control and the ability to stop when they had planned to. The behavior begins to control and manipulate the person’s life. People are often referred to as being an ‘addict’ and having an ‘addiction’ once this pattern of behavior has taken root. In its most chronic state, the addicts’ main purpose, function and desire is to ‘feed’ the addiction. This cultivates an endless cycle of unhealthy behavior which triggers an overwhelming sense to ‘use more, more frequently’ in order to feel satisfied. This ‘using’ behavior becomes the only means of pleasure or ‘escape’ for the addict.
Eventually addiction causes an often-devastating impact on all areas of life, resulting in chronic health conditions, poor social engagement, isolation, work problems, family and relationship breakdown, a chaotic lifestyle, debt or financial problems.
