Addictions are so common in today’s society. Obviously people are addicted to drugs, nail-biting, gambling, alcohol, food, work, sex, video games – the list goes on and on. These are all tangible things that people feel they need. But what abut thought addiction? Obsessive thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors can be looked upon as an addiction or a habit.
It’s easy to notice when you are addicted to something as tangible as drinking or drugs or food. But it is more subtle and hidden to realize that maybe there is a thought addiction. Maybe there are harmful thoughts and habitual ways of thinking that are limiting you and holding you back.
I know so many people who are addicted to worrying, or anger, or sadness. It becomes a habit that when they are faced with adversity or a struggle, they return to the state that makes them feel comfortable. Even if it’s an enraged or a depressed state, as long as they feel safe and secure. It’s a habit that has become an addiction.
I have heard the analogy that worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair – it gives you something to do, but you don’t get anywhere. Sitting around and worrying, fretting, and obsessing over the details really does you no good. It will only increase the stress and anxiety. You can overcome this thought addiction when you learn to use hypnosis to control your mind.
Conquer Thought Addiction With Hypnosis
A thought addiction really is a loss of control of the mind. The mind just wants to go to the same place that it feels comfortable. So sometimes these obsessive thoughts or worries just keep coming back again and again. And it seems the harder you try to get rid of these thoughts, the more they want to stay. This is the Law of Reversed Effect. You have to learn to let go and take back control. It may seem counter-intuitive, but you have to give up control to get control.
Hypnosis is the ideal way to take back control of your mind. You will control your mind – instead of your mind controlling you.
