After all, we don't go through withdrawal. At least not physical withdrawal, anyway. Right? Well, let's take coffee out of that equation. (The headaches, fatigue, and downright meanness are very real withdrawal symptoms from good old caffeine).
Do you know what to do with your day if you don't turn on electronics today? How much of your life is devoted to these things? As the author points out, we may all be addicts. Those who don't find addictions in the definitions he gives, may be in denial about something.
After giving me my "Aha" moment about my addictions, the author then seemed to turn his back on me and deal mostly with the serious ones -- gambling, drinking, and drugging. His recommendations are valid, but since my nature is that of a true addict, I don't think I need a group of supporters or likeminded addicts in recovery to help me with my "Kindle" habit. Where would one find such people anyway?
That being said, the book is an eye opener. In that regard, I felt liberated and empowered to help myself with my addiction issues. (She said as she typed furiously on her Apple product).
Buy the book. You won't regret it.
