Addiction Behaviors

Sometimes people do choose behaviors that have undesirable effects. Personal responsibility and behavioral change are major components of any credible treatment program. Addiction, like heart disease, cancers, and type II diabetes, is a real and complex disease.
Examples of addictive behaviors include:
•Problem gambling
•Sexual activities
•Food and eating
•Computer games
But now theres a new addictive behavior being added to the list, its texting!!!


  1. This is so true!!! i know people that are literally attached to their phones at all times. I had a friend and her texting bill will was about 40,000 to 50,000 a month. I think that is ridiculous. where do people find that kind of time?!

  2. Most of the things on your list are also increasing in frequency due to the easy access of them through our new societal norms and technology. Certainly not a good thing.
