When someone has an addictive personality, he or she is predisposed to becoming addicted to various things. It doesn’t always have to be substances, either. It can be gambling, exercise, food, or anything. It can be anything that someone likes. Learn more about what you can do about an addictive personality.
About an Addictive Personality
Addiction takes place when people become so enthralled with something that they can’t stop. They will put aside other areas of their life just so they have time for whatever they are addicted to at the time. They become obsessed with it.
If the addicted person cannot access what their obsession is, they end up become angry and anxious. They will demand their addiction, and will not stop until they get it.
People with an addictive personality can have their life easily taken over by whatever they are addicted to. As soon as they experience something they enjoy, they have a hard time stopping their engagement in it. They continue to do it repeatedly. It becomes their life.
The dangers of this depend on the addiction – however, in most of them, people lose their job, ruin relationship, compromise their health, safety, and future. They end up risking their whole lives for this addiction.
Addiction affects everyone – not just the addict. Loved ones often have to deal with the anger and anxiety associated with the person not getting what he is obsessed with, and often end up enabling the addict. For example, the addict may ask for money, and his/her loved one provides it. The loved one knows if he/she doesn’t, it will just cause a lot of stress. This is how relationships become strained over time, as the loved one doesn’t want to give in, but feels there’s no other choice.
