Unhealthy behavioral addictions such as gambling addiction, internet addiction, pornography addiction, sex addiction, shoplifting addiction, shopping addiction, smoking addiction, sugar addiction, video game addiction, and work addiction can be described as too much time spent doing one thing. There are amounts of skills not learned elsewhere in other activities. When a person gets too heavily into shopping, gambling, video games, etc., he/she can lose touch with other aspects of daily living. In fact, other aspects of daily living become more detached, and too much time is spent with the addiction. Symptoms of addiction can include running up bills unreasonably, taking out too much time for the addictive activity, avoiding outside contacts, and not connecting with the people outside anymore. Generally, too much priority is given to the addictive activity, and other aspects of daily living go down in value and acceptance. Other aspects of the addicted person’s life may suffer, including appearance and maintaining responsibilities. If you are a person that is beginning to lose contact with the outside world because of one or two activities that take up too much time, you may have behavioral addictions. These addictions can qualify a person for treatment. Many different treatment programs can help with all types of behavioral addictions.
