3 Lessons Learned: Resources

Safer Options for Things You Might be Addicted to

The world we live in today offers so many things that we can, and may already be addicted to; there are those that even use certain chemicals to make the day easier to survive through. Majority of these addictive items are viewed as an everyday part of life because of the sheer number of people that use them. As life gets more and more challenging and prices seem to do nothing but rise, we seriously have to let go of all the unimportant expenses; hundreds and thousands of people have been buried in debt because of their need to spend for their addiction. Each and every addiction has a solution and even better alternatives, but the road to completely letting go of it will be difficult.

When we talk about digital addiction, high up on the list would be anything involving social media. Alongside the help of the structure of social media, we’re able to connect with anyone, anywhere. People give and receive likes, invites and follows and this makes them feel popular; the feeling can be addictive, so they spend as much time as they can on their accounts. An efficient and effective solution to this would be to spend more time with real people in the real world. So the next time you think about spending an entire afternoon on your social media account, plan a meet up with friends instead; that’s how we were designed to socialise, plus it’s a better and healthier option compared to the first.

Next on our list is a more serious addiction compared to the first. One of the oldest vices would be gambling, it’s been around since anyone can remember and with the technology that we have today it’s easy to gamble at home as it is in casinos. Online casinos have taken over the world of online gambling; it’s like playing in an actual casino but everything is digital like the players and the board. It’s obvious that people gamble for the rush of winning and what’s at stake, aside from the prize money but competitive games offer the exact same rush at cost-effective options.

When we talk about substances in our modern society, the most addictive would be nicotine and people intake them from smoking. We don’t need to state the effects of smoking but if you want a better and safer alternative, then e-cigarettes is perfect choice for you; e-cigarettes are as safe as any other nicotine alternatives out there. Getting your hands on a handy e-cigarette is as easy as buying any other item online; look for an official seller, read up on the reviews, pay and wait.

About 90% of Americans are currently addicted to anything with caffeine; it’s a stimulant that hastens the body’s consumption of resources and increases the heart rate and give it an energy rush. There’s nothing entirely wrong with coffee, but you should choose a healthier natural drink.
