The exercise module offered for download serves to reduce your own addictive behaviour. With the help of a learning program logically structured in individual steps, you will work out the general requirements for reducing your addictive behaviour in the first three steps. These are a prerequisite for step 4, where the topic of "addiction" is dealt with specifically.

This program was created on the basis of scientific principles. It allows you to do something about each of the problems yourself by actively working through the text and using the exercises provided.

So you will need some time and effort to get results. The advantage is obvious: you do not rely on superficial "tips" or advice literature, but take personal responsibility with regard to the issues where you want to achieve improvement..

 

Effects of inappropriate thoughts on addictive behavior

 

The effects of inappropriate thoughts (mental evaluations) on addictive behavior are a perpetuation of addictive behavior and fear of withdrawal symptoms:

You think in certain situations (events, places, times ...) when you have certain feelings (e.g., fear, anger, or dejection) or when you have certain bodily sensations (e.g., tension, restlessness, and withdrawal symptoms), for example, that you need to smoke, drink, eat, take pills, or the like. So you associate a specific triggering event (A) with your problematic use (behavior-C).

Two other factors are crucial to maintaining this association:

Behavior

  • For many individuals who exhibit such addictive behavior, it is because they have long been accustomed to responding to certain events, feelings, or bodily sensations with problematic consumption. When such an event occurs, they react almost automatically with the ingrained habit of thinking that links that particular situation or feeling (A) with problematic consumption as a reaction (C). They do not consider alternative behaviors at the moment of occurrence of that situation or feeling.

Addiction / craving

  • Because you are used to your problematic consumption, once you stop, withdrawal symptoms appear after some time. In response to noticing these withdrawal symptoms, you react with thoughts like, "I feel like I need this addictive substance and now I absolutely must have it!" You feel a craving for a cigarette, alcohol, food, or pills, for example, and give in to that craving. This means that you continue your problematic consumption.

To change something about your problematic consumption, it is important that you change certain things:

  • It is important that you work on changing your inappropriate evaluations.
  • You need to realize your almost automatic connection between certain events (A) and your problematic use, and try to interrupt this automatism.
  • You must realize that when you experience withdrawal symptoms, you do not have to use again, but choose to do so in order to escape the unpleasant sensations that arise. You can also choose not to consume and then, of course, have to endure the likely unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
