Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by compulsive, or uncontrollable, drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences and changes in the brain, which can be long-lasting. These changes in the brain can lead to the harmful behaviors seen in people who use drugs. Drug addiction is also a relapsing disease. Relapse is the return to drug use after an attempt to stop.

The path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs. But over time, a person’s ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised. Seeking and taking the drug becomes compulsive. This is mostly due to the effects of long-term drug exposure on brain function. Addiction affects parts of the brain involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and control over behavior.

Addiction is a disease that affects both the brain and behavior.

Internet Addiction/ Mobile Addiction/ Screen Addiction/ Device Addiction

Internet addiction is a growing but little discussed epidemic that affects many people’s lives across the world some that may not even realize it. Research into this addiction is relatively limited but can be linked to other addictive behavior patterns such as gambling or compulsive behaviors. Often internet addicts are unaware of the behavior patterns that are likely not only to be affecting them but also the people closest to them.

With the sudden rise in internet availability and subsequent rise in the content available it can be easy in this day and age to spend large amounts of time in front of your screen without even noticing. The most common forms relating to online addiction are pornography, gambling, gaming, shopping and just general browsing with no great purpose but to escape reality.

Porn Addiction

Addiction is a medical term that refers to the changes in brain chemistry and response to a particular substance or activity. Pornography can be addictive because it causes a strong release of dopamine, just like alcohol and substance misuse. It is considered an addiction when there is a feeling that the porn usage is interfering with daily life, or interfering with relationships.

When a substance or activity causes a dopamine release, some people may find that over time they require more of it or more intense usage of it to get the same ‘hit’. The person may then feel compelled to use more pornography, or to access more extreme material, as they become desensitized to material that they had previously enjoyed. This is known as porn addiction. Porn addiction can cause serious harm to close relationships and quality of life, so it is important to access support as soon as you recognize that there is a problem.

Gambling Addiction

Gambling is to risk something of value for another item of value, for example, buying poker tokens in order to play to possibly win something of more substantial value.

Gambling addiction is the uncontrollable urge to continue gambling regardless of the consequences. Compulsive gambling problem has a severe negative effect on your brain as it triggers the brain’s reward system and can be compared to how a drug could make you feel.
