I really hate that I am addicted to alcohol. I wish breaking my addiction wasn’t so hard. Why is it so hard to break my addiction?

It’s because your so used to doing it. You are probably putting yourself in the same situations making it hard to not want it.

When you have a pleasure based habit it releases dopamine. So when you do something over and over and again and dopamine is present it strengthens the habit so when your not doing it the dopamine creates the craving to do it again.
