Different Types of Addiction
It is a state of being dependent on something for pleasure. This pleasure brings the relaxation to the body and brain. The person who enjoys such pleasure is called an addict. But if it is in limit, it won’t harm but over-dependence or over-addiction always spoils and do some harm to the body. But this article is not about the damages of addiction, how to get rid of an addiction, what are the medicines for de-addiction. This is an article that describes the classification of addiction present in the human society. This article described that all types of addictions fall under six broadly classified types of addictions. These types are described next.
Name and fame
People who are addicted to get name and fame for themselves fall in this category. Name and fame lead to success. Such people are known in the society either through their good deeds or bad deeds. They will be noticed by everyone for their great inclination toward the fashion or weirdo-type looks, but anyhow they feel good about being noticed by the people. Film stars and politicians are the most prominent in this category, followed by rich and wealthy individuals
Money is power, so this category is also synonymous with power. Money makes life merrier. Everyone wants money but few want more money. Many people are so much addicted to get more money that they will do anything to crack deal that gets them money. Some poor people, who might not be addicted to earn more money, are in such a dire need of money that they can take any route to earn money, giving rise to crime and other malpractices
Everyone of us work to earn livelihood but people falling under this group work most of the time. They are called WORKAHOLIC. These people are so obsessed with their work that work is always their first or the top-most priority. Not everyone but few people have personal life and relationship at stake because of the workaholic nature. But one fact that it true about these people is that they are very passionate about their work and have keen eye for every detail.
This is the most common type of addiction found in the human society. This addiction encompasses a cigarette to alcohol to drugs. Most of the individuals fall in this category. An individual starts an addiction as a hobby and then becomes a complete addict. Such transformation is inevitable in most of the cases. This type of prolonged addiction causes most of the ailments of the human body and renders body unfit. Smokers and drinkers are the most prominent in this group
The addiction to sexual desires falls in this class. People in this class perform all types of the tricks to allure the individual of the opposite sex. Charm, looks, wit and style are generally used to entice the partner of the opposite sex, whereas others might use their power and position for satisfying their sexual cravings. Sexual harassment and molestation are the two social evils that emerged from this type of addiction and are the most prevalent in the society.
The addiction of the god is the best addiction in the world. Unlike other addictions, it will not harm your body but rather help in healing your mind and body. Above all, it helps in the purification of heart and soul. Many people start the day by taking the name of the God. Every society has some places and rituals that people follow for making prayers to God. But the best place where a human being can find God is in his\her heart.
I hope every reader enjoys this classification and tries to locate which type of addicted s/he is. Happy hubbing
