In my work as an addiction therapist, I have helped hundreds of people in overcoming all kinds of addictions. Usually, when people think of addictions, they think of addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, gambling or internet gaming. But these more commonly known addictions are just the tip of the iceberg, for beneath these conspicuous behaviours lie another kind of addiction: addiction to non-physical things.
By this, I’m referring to certain emotions or states of being. The things that can’t be seen on the outside but take place in a person’s inner world.
