Overcoming Addiction – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO FINALLY BEAT IT

so how exactly this one go about overcoming addiction the most common mistake that we tend to make when trying to quit whenever it is that we're addicted to is that we try to quit cold turkey we say alright I swear from this moment on I will no longer smoke i will no longer look at pornography I will never look for another quick fix whatever it is the large majority of people often find themselves relapsing giving in and starting back at square one why does it seem so impossible well the answer actually lies in an experiment they conducted in the seventies so during the 70's scientists put rats in cages with two sources of water normal water and water spiked with cocaine they observe that these rats would eventually get hooked on the cocaine water to the point where they keep drinking it until the overdosed and died a couple of years later another group of scientists conducted a study where instead of putting rats into cages by themselves they put them into a completely different environment they call the rap part rap park at tons of space there were tons of things that rats love grass toys and most importantly of all there were other rats and rap part they have the same water setup normal water and water spiked with cocaine to their surprise not one rat died from cocaine overdose and for the most part the rats ignored the cocaine spiked water they even went as far as getting rats addicted to cocaine beforehand in secluded cages for over a month and then moving them into rap park in these cases all the rats who are addicted to cocaine with stop drinking the cocaine spike water over time they overcame their addiction with ease so what does this mean well this means that addiction is something that occurs when there are no other consistent sources of happiness in your environment so if you're the type of person who has little friends stays in his mother's basement all day with absolutely no goals with terrible health well I'm sorry to break it to you but you're going to have a near-impossible time getting over your porn addiction or your eating disorder or your alcohol problem because you're basically in the human version of a lonely rat cage so if you want to overcome your addiction you have to somehow find a better environment to live in you have to find the human version of rat Park otherwise you just gonna fail over and over again so where do you start well there are three areas of your life that you need to work on these three areas will provide you with enough happiness to move you out of your lonely cage and into the human version of rat Park number one is deep human bonding a recent study found that forty-eight percent of americans have only one person they can speak to about important matters i'm sure most of you guys do have some friends however if you take a step back and look at these relationships how many of them can you say are truly deep and meaningful you guys talk about deep important matters ways to help each other improve or do you talk about what happened on the game last night or about the latest episode of whatever TV show you watch most people nowadays have acquaintances not friends so how exactly do you get real friends and build real bonds well you have to work on your social skills and learn how to hold deeper conversations actually have a video about this and a link to it in the description below number two is to focus less time on social media and instead focus on interacting with people in real life by following these two steps you'll see a drastic improvement in the amount of deep bonds you have with others the second area you need to work on is meaningful work seventy percent of us employees now report being extremely unhappy with the work they do you don't see these numbers in places like Google or Tesla why is that well it's because the majority of work the typical American has to do is monotonous it's pushing papers or entering data and taking orders from someone else this little to no emotional connection with the work they do now does this mean you have to quit your job in order to quit your addiction not necessarily but what you do need is something that you find meaningful this could be community service this could be posting your art or your music online this could be writing that book you always wanted to write you need to ask yourself what are some things that you hold really important and start doing them for me it's creating these videos so i can impact lives in a positive way if your work has meaning then it becomes a consistent source of pleasure in your life the third and final area you can work on is sculpting are we going to be sculpting statues well know what I say sculpting I mean the act of working on yourself sculpting yourself the reason i chose the word sculpt instead of improve yourself is because well it's going to be uncomfortable it's gonna hurt it's only afterwards that the happiness settles in for example going to the gym during your workout you put under tons of uncomfortable stress but afterwards you feel like the king of the world improving yourself in any way follows a similar pattern working on your social skills by approaching random strangers or resisting an urge to eat ice cream on a hot summer day are all forms of sculpting you're sacrificing your current desires to sculpt a better future even the smallest improvement will help by working on these three areas you can slowly introduce yourself into a better cage let's say you worked on yourself for a month you started going to the gym you started hanging out with some friends you started a little project that you're passionate about you may not be in rap park yet but you're definitely in a much better cage and what you'll find is that you'll notice that there is naturally less of an urge to indulge in whatever your addiction is and since you indulge in it less you'll have an easier time improving on these three areas so you end up working out more hanging out more and working on your projects more slowly and surely this positive feedback loop brings you out of addiction you finally get to the point where you've built yourself a version of your very own rap park and you don't even bother looking at the bottom or looking for porn or looking for the next fix because why run away from reality when reality is so awesome alright so a lot of you guys have been asking me for help on quitting pornography and completing the no-fat challenge due to popular demand I'm actually coming out with the course early
