Emotional Addiction: Know What Is It, How To Cope Up With

Emotions enhance your experience but your addiction to these feelings is the problem because they create biochemical addictions

Emotional addiction comes from a lack of genetics, behaviour, attitude, relationship or spirituality. Emotional addiction is habitually or compulsively being engaged in or involved in something.

Emotions are holographic reactions to our experiences. There are chemicals for every emotional state one experiences. The hypothalamus makes peptides that it sends to thousands of receptors on a cell. They add to this and signal what goes into our cells. One becomes emotionally accustomed to the situation and as long as they do not change their attachments, emotions and beliefs about things, they remain addicted.

Emotions enhance your experience but your addiction to these feelings is the problem because they create biochemical addictions. When you think about all of your experiences with the feelings you've attached to them—from the brain all the way down to your body cells—it's no wonder it's hard to let go of abusive relationships, people, food, and sex. No wonder it's hard to overcome drug and alcohol addiction, food addiction, gambling addiction, and more.
