Addiction isn?t what we thought it was. It?s not always negative and it?s nothing new either. Whether it?s our daily coffee hit, impulsively checking our smartphone or putting in too many hours at the office, addiction can touch each and every one of us. But what can we do when addictions become a problem? This thought-provoking and challenging book explores the nature of addiction and touches on addictions of all kinds, including smartphones, sex, gaming, social media and gambling - but most of all, to alcohol and drugs. Presenting the latest research and their own frontline experience, Matt Noffs and Kieran Palmer share the tools that they have developed over decades at Ted Noffs Foundation supporting young people with serious drug issues. Filled with fascinating information about the body, the brain and the human condition, Addicted? offers help, advice and understanding for anyone struggling with addiction in their lives, including: ? Insights from those who have experienced deep addiction in their lives ? The role that trauma plays and how to move beyond it ? How to identify and manage triggers and cravings ? Tactics developed by some of the best therapists around the world ? Exercises and activities to move beyond unhelpful behaviours ? Tips for family and friends.
