Asked: 2018-04-01 18:33:21
When trying to teach my teens about how to avoid peer pressure when they go to college, I realized that I wanted to cover all of the different types of addiction there are in the world. I remembered about alcohol addiction and drug addiction to hard drugs like heroin and meth, but what are some other addictions I can talk to them about, so they are fully informed when starting life.

There are many addictions in this world, including drug, alcohol, sex, gambling, shopping, and even self-mutilation. In order to stop an addiction, many people need to get professional help to determine why they do what they do and create reasonable ways to stop their compulsion to do whatever it is that they are doing.

Many people are addicted to more than one thing at a time. It’s possible for someone to be addicted to drugs and alcohol at the same time. Someone who becomes easily addicted to things often has multiple compulsions that they cannot control.
