I find in life people tend to make excuses for their behavior. People who Drink, Smoke, Gamble and even Shop. They to me show a lack of self discipline. Doctors like to put labels on behaviors , which then allows the behaviors to continue. Instead of finding the reason behind the behavior they label it and move on.
Is Addiction Really That or Is It a Lack of Self Discipline?
I am no doctor but it is plain to see that everything people claim to be addicted to can be stopped if they just choose to. I know easier said than done. Not true. If you want anything in life bad enough you will get it. If a drug addict wants drugs but has no money , they will find a way to get money. At the same time they can find a way not to get high. They just choose to be weak.
Why would anybody want to choose failure as an option in life? And why do people think they have to do it alone. Nobody wants to see there loved one failing in there life. That is when friends and family step in and want to help. So ask. The only shame is not asking .
