Why we need to overcome addiction

Many people consider addiction as a faulty habit developed by some weak individuals. Millions of addicts and their peers, give up on lives, assuming addiction is a dead-end, an irreversible destructive life pattern. Will power is over exaggerated without identifying the reasons or triggering facts. Most of the times, people do not understand when they should rely on self-help approach and when to seek out for professional help.

Addiction is an underrated word for a bigger underlying challenge. Addiction is mostly perceived as an individual weakness to manage a situation. A lot of times, its not the addicts alone who are responsible for this pattern, but there are many more inevitable factors. 

Our aim is to throw light on most of the misunderstood and misguiding facts that leads to addiction, removing the façade on the suggestive patterns which leads to addiction and finally trigger people to take action, not just partially but going into the depths so as to not to fall back into the spot again.

This film is an attempt to empower the viewers to let go of the misunderstandings associated with addicts, addictions or circumstances so that they can forge ahead with their far greater potential for inner freedom and happiness.

What is this Film About?

What is Addiction and why is it important to address it now?

Addiction can be described as chronically and compulsively numbing and taking the edge off of feelings. Or a text book definition is that: “It is a state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming such as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma” Addiction today is epidemic and catastrophic. If we are not victims ourselves, we all most probably know someone struggling with a merciless compulsion to alter their mental state through addictions.

The addictive brain!!

Our brain is a network of neurons, neural pathways and chemicals that trigger stimuli and response for the healthy functioning of the body. But what happens in an addictive brain is forced responses. By providing information on addictive brain, how it is created and functions, people will learn to manage and overcome addictions in a better manner. Peers of addicts will understand how to deal with them and support them.

Overcoming and recovering from addiction

Recovering or overcoming is a painstaking process, both for the addicts and their peers. Understanding the underlying emotions for addiction, stress, habits and patterns, circumstances which led to chemical addiction and many other inevitable but imperative factors will help individuals to overcome and recover from addictive patterns.

What are the main causes for Addiction?

Addiction is mostly considered as the faulty behavior of an individual or the habits adapted by a weak willed brain. But there are many a times when an addict is not even responsible for getting into addiction. This section throws light on various factors which leads to addiction, some of them are shocking, but true.

Understanding addictive behavior

There are no clear-cut tests to determine whether one is, or is not, an addict, and in addition to making diagnosis murky, this lack of clarity hinders efforts to cure the disease. Hence most observations are done through focusing on the addictive behaviors. Behaviors become addictive when they are the result of a pattern that becomes a ritual, habitual and repetitive.

Becoming aware of your biological urges and triggers

Urges are normal but addictive behaviors cause changes in your brain that make urges very powerful, so “getting rid of them” is an unrealistic expectation. You can’t control urges, but you can control how you respond to them. Learn the different kind of urges and triggering factors that will stop an individual from making changes.

Self-help approach to addiction

In most cases, self-help approach to addiction is the way out, but its important to know when to use this or when to seek out for professional help. We insist that if needed, please do not hesitate in taking professional help. This section explains in details as to how we can overcome addiction, making lasting changes, creating new habits and lifestyle patterns and recover from its control over us. There are many self-help solutions that you can apply to deal with depression healthily.
