Blog Post Showcase: The Cycle of Addiction, written by: Bradley Riddell


Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday’s new ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.

In this week’s post, Bradley gives us an in depth look at the cycle of addiction.

In order to understand it, we need to get acquainted by the four parts of this cycle.

Once we’ve done this, we can start the change process, starting with the way we relate to our own thoughts and what to do when the cravings and difficult times arise.

Another important topic that Bradley touches on is instant gratification. We live in a day and age where getting things immediately is king. We have forgotten how to wait for things, but in regards to addiction, this can become even more precarious when trying to stop the cycle.

Bradley also speaks about making the unconscious stuff conscious. Knowing what is in our unconscious will helps us break the cycle.

If you need any help with addictions, get in touch with Bradley through his website here.

I’ll let Bradley tell you a bit more about this topic now in his full post.



I’ll be updating these posts as I receive links to colleague’s blog posts. Keep an eye out for these!
