When you examine addiction up close and personal you realize something:
You’re addicted to your memories of your first experiences of your addiction — not to the thing itself. This is why it’s never been proven that addictive substances or behaviors exist.
In other words, your nostalgia seeps into your brain and convinces you to give into your addictions (even if they leave you unsatisfied afterwards).
In this episode, I’m revealing why nostalgia is so powerful and how to train your mind to ignore it so you can take addiction completely off of your “menu.”
Show highlights include:
- The sneaky way your nostalgia jacks up your addictive tendencies without you even realizing it (3:20)
- How gobbing up pints of ice cream helps you dump your addictions for good (8:50)
- The “Unconscious Test” that instantly makes you realize you’re not addicted to porn (or any other behavior or drug) (14:18)
- Why accepting responsibility for your feelings is the first step to chucking addiction, anxiety, and depression out your window (even if none of it is your fault) (16:47)
