  • Addiction and trust: Marc Lewis at TEDxRadboudU 2013

    A former drug addict himself, Lewis now researches addiction. In order to get over ones addiction, he explains, self-trust is necessary. Unfortunately, self- trust is extremely difficult for an addict to achieve. There are two factors that make it so difficult to get over an addiction: lack of self-control and an inability to put off reward. An addict wants his fix and he wants it now, despite the risk of losing out on a happier, healthier future. The way to build self-trust, Lewis explained, and get over an addiction is for the addict to begin an internal dialogue with his future self to convince his present self that it can, in fact, live without its addiction. Lewis finished by explaining how he did just that. By writing the simple word 'NO' on a piece of paper and reading it at every ...

Addiction Click here for official Website: http://truthofaddiction.com/ Maybe you're looking for these topics: Overcoming addiction, How to overcome an addiction, addiction recovery program, drug and alcohol treatment centers, alcohol withdrawal treatment. Addiction was thought to only affect moral wrongdoers or those that are weak-willed. But addiction is much more... The pervasive nature of addiction penetrates the lives of the poor and rich, successful and unsuccessful. Medical doctors as well as homeless transients, easily become addicted. Website: http://truthofaddiction.com/special/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/TruthOfAddiction1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialTruthOfAddiction Some people become addicted to heroin, while others, snack foods and sweets. Addictions, are really chemical addictions inside the brain. Addiction boosts chemicals in the brain by activating the limbic “reward” center. This limbic "reward" center is very powerful in directing behavior because it is denser, developed before other brain structures, and works largely at a subconscious level. Addictive behaviors such as drug taking, activates the motivational-incentive system in the brain that is associated with a species survival. The same reward system is found in ancient life such as anthropoids, inveterate phyla and mollusks.. This is the same area that is tied to the autonomic nervous system. It is activated when we step outside in freezing temperatures and our bodies begin to shiver. We do not consciously control these things, they just happen. Scientists know that addition is not just a mental or moral weakness, but has biochemical roots that throw off the homeostatic state of the brain. When dopamine (a brain chemical) spikes at dramatic levels it starts to “hijack” other parts of the brain. As a result, addicts start to value the emotional payoff of their drug over the perceived negative consequences. The brain is a multiple structured system in which different structures "fight" against each other for dominance, and for the brain to operate properly, it must be at balance. Addictive behaviors work on the emotional system, while the rational brain structure competes to warn the individual of the consequences of such behaviors. This explains why many addicts feel as if there is a different part to them – a part that wants to quit, while another part strongly urges them to continue. Ambivalence (should I or shouldn't I?) is a common feeling for those who are addicted... Family members often describe their loved one as a Mr. Jekyll and Dr Hyde because their drug-taking behavior has become priority. They may seem erratic. Addicts may lie, cheat and steal to hide and maintain their drug using. This is a result of the addicted brain. Instead of viewing addicted individuals as moral wrongdoers, understanding that an addict often has a biochemical imbalance that can be corrected, this brings hope. One example, Dr. Gant, Medical director of Tully Hill Hospital reported 83 percent success in treating people with addictions by addressing the biochemical deficiencies. Dr. Gant and colleagues showed certain nutrients can restore the imbalance that continues to fuel addiction. Once it is fixed, behavior improves. These studies were repeated, resulting in similar outcomes. Addiction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cBBpMEEFmQ

Invoking chocolate, the professor talks about the right way and the wrong way to define a drug addiction. Question: How do you define addiction?Hart:    There are multiple ways to define addiction of course but in medicine, when we think about when people come to, for health care.  We think of addiction in terms of the DSM termed.  The DSM is the Diagnostic in Statistical Manual.  It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association and in that book; it has a clear definition of what addiction is.  Addiction typically, we think of it as people may exhibit tolerance to a substance they may go through withdrawal when they don't have the substance.  They may spend increasing amount of time engage in the behavior to obtain or use the substance they may have had unsuccessful, number unsuccessful attempts to cut down their use of the substance.  They may use despite the fact that they are having psychological or physical problems.  These are sort of hallmarks of addiction.  So like when people use the term in popular culture, they typically have another perspective in mind.  Some people use things like I'm a hopping addict, I'm a chocolate addict or something and that's a more benign use of the term but then there are people who use the term, they think of things like folks who will steal your money and rob you, they are addicts.  Question: How do you identify an addict early on? Hart:    You can think about it from a biological perspective with alcohol people tends to think folks who have a parent for example who was an alcoholic.  They may have an increase likelihood of becoming dependent on alcohol while that's the case we're not entirely sure but people who are looking at genetics and other biological markers but we're not real sure but we certainly think that they may have an increase likelihood and then there are of course there are important social factors, doing certain points of your life you may be more likely to be addictive to a substance because of some conditions under which you are experience, you don't have a job, you don't have any responsibilities, you have a greater access to a particular substance than you normally would have.  All of these things could increase the likelihood of somewhat becoming addictive.
