Do you know the difference between addiction and dependence? In fact, these close phenomenas that we tend to confuse do not affect the brain in the same way. Some substances are neurotoxic, so they destroy neurons while others do not. Certain behaviors affect the way neurons communicate by reprogramming their exchanges.

In our approach, we voluntarily confuse both, because what is interesting is that both addictions and dependencies have one thing in common: dopamine, whose role is to serve as a learning signal. It's the reward system. When dopamine is released, it tells the brain that the behavior is good and that we should continue to adopt the behavior that gave rise to it. However, when dopamine is released in excess, that's when the learning signal is inappropriate and ultimately the person can no longer control. This is when the change is made, we can say that addiction is the dark side of learning. Even if the person knows that what he does contributes more to his own destruction than to his well-being, the call of the dopamine (the reward) is stronger.

From the energetic point of view, we can see that behind the person there is an energetic form connected to the lower part of the brain, directly to the pituitary gland, as a control system that gradually leads the person to addiction. What is important to know is that this form of consciousness can only connect to our own consciousness when it finds a defect in the person, something that comes from an injury, and the addiction actually hides the injury in pleasure, it is the only solution that the consciousness system has managed to adapt in order to continue living.

If one wants to help a person who suffers from an addiction, it is easily understood that one should not deprive the person of his palliative, in which case the injury will again be visible and the resulting discomfort will only strengthen the mechanism of the addiction. So don't fight the system, if you find that the addiction feeds, then the awareness of the addiction will be disconnected from the person's consciousness.

Among the addictions I have encountered is alcoholism, which is based on an experience that has created a deep self-hatred; bulimia feeds on a person's emptiness. Digital addiction (telephone, video games...) is based on the fact that life seems insipid. Having solved several cases, the resolution of the initial injury can stop the addiction mechanism almost instantly. But, for the affected person, the most important thing is already to become aware of the problem and then to want to solve it.

Remember that the problem is not in the alcohol or the mobile phone, but it becomes one when it is the alcohol or the phone that rules the person !
