Dealing with Addictions

Dealing with Addiction is a plague that is constantly with us in society. The rates of addiction are high today more than ever. Effectively dealing with addiction requires the victim to channel his/her willpower towards overcoming this tough hurdle.

Addictions alter human brain patterns causing the victim to have compulsions and cravings. A person dealing with addiction, therefore, has to keep the right mindset to achieve his/her goals.

Below we highlight some of the ways through which people can deal with addictions: 

Decide to change. Most addicts do not understand that they have a problem that hampers their productivity. Some others do, but they are unwilling to admit it. When you recognise your problem and decide to make a change, it is the first step towards healing. You should stand by your choice because the road to recovery is tough. 

Develop a support system. A person trying to overcome addiction goes through changes that may be tough on them. A support system ensures that you have people you can call on whenever you need help. Family, doctors and friends should be available whenever you need them. 


Do not feed your addictions. Do not attend events that will expose you to your addictions. Avoid people who will encourage you to engage in addcitive behavior and and only take part in activities that will build you. You can go swimming, for instance, and skip a party on Friday night. 

Know how you will handle the scenario if you find yourself stuck in a place that will fuel your addiction. With a proper support structure, you can call on specific people to help you get out of situations that can cause a relapse. For example, there can be a friend you call on when you need a ride out of a place that may encourage relapse. 

Remind yourself of your goals. You can make use of goal planners to remind yourself of your goals, how much you have achieved and what you are yet to achieve. 

Remember that dealing with addiction is not easy and that you can always relapse. Relapsing, however, does not mean you have to give up. With support from the right people, you will eventually make it. If you know a person who suffers with an addiction, you can use the tips above to help support them.

The TadFan Goals planner, helped me get clarity and perspective on my life. I was at a crossroads. I didn’t know which way to turn, I needed something to help me find my way and this was perfect to give me guidance on where to start. I wouldn’t be without one these days as it keeps me on track with whatever I need to focus on and achieve. John Miles

What a great planner. I was so disorganised and didn’t know where I was going or what I was doing, With the goals planner and with help from my pathfinder I managed to get all my ducks in order and I feel so much more in control of my life, instead of a complete scatty mess, not knowing where I am or what I’m doing one day to the next. Ellie James

I wouldn’t be without my planner, it comes everywhere with me. I make time to have just 20 minutes to myself to think of the next step to move me forward to my goals. Just by doing this one little thing daily with the help of my planner I have achieved more in 6 months than I have in 20 years. Louise Morgan
