The Power of Addiction and the Addiction of Power

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66cYcSak6nE

By Dr. Gabor Mate, physician, Vancouver, Canada

He addresses all addictions: heroin, alcohol, internet, sex, shopping, work, distractions, food, exercise, consumerism, etc.

He says: any activity that allows us temporary relief from temporary harm can become into an addiction. It sets up a cycle of addiction/relief that become very hard to get out of, which increases negative consequences.

Thanks for sharing Pat.

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen

I really am coming to love

I really am coming to love Gaber Mate's videos and this is no exception. He puts things so clearly but then I can't remember! I remember some of it but I have go back and review it again. I'm sure this memory issue is due to all the addictions I've had over my lifetime, specifically gaming. Thank you for sharing this! Very informative!
