Too many families are quietly locked in a battle with a silent beast that hides in plain sight... that leaves suffering in its wake and derails you off the path to reach your dreams.

Dear Friend,

No one wants to talk about this shameful monster that destroys families, friendships, marriages, careers and more. 

And while it’s not necessarily something to be ashamed of, it can turn into a deadly beast if left unchecked.

I’m talking about addiction.

When we think about addiction, our minds tend to imagine someone who’s stuck in unhealthy behaviors that are dangerous or even deadly.

It makes us think of people we've seen living on the streets, barely able to function, with their suffering on display. Or people whose lives have become so dependent on getting a “fix” of some sort that they’ll sacrifice pretty much anything, and often everything, to get it. 

But there’s something about addiction you need to know. Something even some addiction experts don’t talk about much.

The truth is that addiction doesn’t always look like this.

The truth is that most of us, at some point in our lives, will battle some form of addiction.

The truth about addiction is that there’s a potential addict hidden inside each of us. 

That may not be easy to hear. But many of us have been silently battling subtle versions of addictions for years without even realizing it.

Addiction is a pervasive problem far more widespread than most realize.

You see, an addict isn’t always that person with a needle in their arm or someone binge drinking or someone who can’t put down the cigarette. Yes, these are addictive behaviors, but they’re also pretty obviously bad behaviors. They stand out. They’re the quintessential versions of addictions we all know about. 

Often our addictions are far more subtle, but just as destructive as the more obvious ones. Because they’re less obvious, we sometimes just ignore them and let them run amok in our lives.

Just a minor bad habit after all, right?


Every Life-Crippling Addiction Started As “Just a Bad Habit”

These addictions take the form of repeated actions we know aren’t healthy or resourceful. In other words, a “bad habit.” 

These bad habits might seem like a minor behavioral issue or little character flaw. But the truth is that they are behind much of the suffering and frustration in our lives. 

They can infect our relationships, how we spend our free time, the way we think about ourselves and the world around us, how we behave in social situations, our language, our sleep, our diets, even our choice in entertainment. 

That’s right, addictive behaviors aren’t just about substance abuse. They are patterns that hold us back. Addiction, in any form, is an insidious bondage that keeps us stuck, weighs us down, and poisons our attempts to grow and change in life.

You might be saying, “Well these are just bad habits and a bad habit isn’t as bad as an addiction. Everybody has a few bad habits.”

Maybe. But every life-crippling addiction started as “just a bad habit.” And when added up, even a few bad habits can ruin a marriage, destroy a career, or even cost someone their life savings. 

Meet Rich, a Centerpointe client who told me something remarkable  about addictions.

Rich sent me a letter saying:

“I spent half my life as an addict without even realizing it. I smoked a little pot in college but I wasn’t addicted to drugs or alcohol. In fact I lived what I thought was a pretty healthy life. Good diet, exercise, avoided all the bad stuff. 

“But I was a very angry and negative person much of the time. My addiction was negativity. I didn’t trust people who were happy because I didn’t think it was even realistic to be happy. I found fault with everything and everyone. Even when something went well I found something wrong with it. I attracted angry negative people into my life while repelling the positive ones.

“My wife eventually left me, and her reason was my constant negative attitude. 

“Once I got some help I started to see that this negative pattern of thinking was actually an addiction. I meditated a ton with Holosync and eventually released that internal attachment I had to those toxic thought patterns. 

“Trust me, not every addiction is obvious. But any addiction can really ruin your life if you don’t get it under control.”

Rich was able to rein in his addiction to negativity…

...but only after it had already taken a toll on his life. 

You Aren’t Alone

If we’re serious about personal development and living authentically, it’s time to face the truth about bad habits and addictions. 

They’re not just things people living difficult and desperate lives do. They don’t always involve illegal substances, too much alcohol or pornography. Some people live their entire lives under the spell of addictive behaviors, thought patterns, or beliefs that simply do not serve them well, that hinder their happiness, health, and peace of mind. And it’s not always easy to spot.

It should come as no surprise that the Covid pandemic made everything worse, pushing addiction problems to their highest point in decades.

To deal with the increased stress, fear and uncertainty, people around the world have turned to various dysfunctional coping mechanisms like stress-eating, substance abuse, excessive shopping, television, video game binging, and spending countless hours on social media.

Sound familiar?

These actions not only damage our self esteem, they damage our relationships, families, careers and so much more.

You see, addiction has become a “hidden” epidemic that’s flourished in the wake of the lockdowns, mask orders, and the heightened stress levels all around the world.

Since the pandemic of 2020, a slew of red flags have been reported:

  • Conventional support systems have been decimated due to social distancing

  • New forms of addictive behaviors have surfaced such as “doomscrolling”

  • Doctors report an increase in relapses of addictive behaviors

  • Internet pornography traffic is the highest it’s ever been

  • Americans gained an average of over 20 lbs each

  • Depression and anxiety are on the rise

  • Overdose death rates have increased

  • Alcohol consumption has increased

These new destructive habits become harder and harder to break as time passes and the cycle continues.

Do you sometimes find yourself…

...unable to take action because you don’t trust yourself not to sabotage your own success?

 ...stuck with situations you’ve created for yourself that hurt your success?

...berating yourself for doing the same unhealthy thing over and over?

...saying things to loved ones you wish you could immediately take back?

...noticing that you’re engaging in negative self talk?

...feeling ashamed about making a bad choice?

Do you ever… yourself into having one more piece of cake even though you want to lose weight?

...rely on alcohol to deal with a tough day at work or to get to sleep at night?

...spend too much time on social media or surfing the internet? hours of TV to “take your mind off things?”

...make up excuses for not finishing a project?

Sadly, many are unaware that they are addicted to counterproductive behaviors and habits that can poison their attempts at achieving a happy, fulfilling life.

And when you know where to look, you can even spot the side effects of addiction.

Here are more signs to look for when it comes to noticing addictive behavior in yourself or your loved ones:

  • You try to rationalize your addictive behavior even though it’s making a negative impact on your life.
  • You miss work or homework assignments because you’re distracted by your addiction.
  • You feel annoyed and uncomfortable when you are kept from your addictive behavior.
  • You cancel plans you’ve made so you can engage in your addictive behavior.
  • You ignore your loved ones in favor of your addictive behavior.
  • You spend money you don’t have to further the addiction.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs in your life (or in the life of someone you love)...

...then there is likely an addiction at the root of the problem.

These might not look like your typical serious addictions. But if you’re repeating these behaviors over and over, and if they’re keeping you from accomplishing your goals and living the life you want, it means you’re stuck in a pattern of addictive thinking and acting that’s holding you back.

But to truly address addiction effectively, you need to understand how these behaviors form in the first place.

The true origin of the silent beast stalking your every move is…


Why Does Stress Lead to Addictive Behavior?

The answer is right between your ears: it’s your brain.

When we’re faced with a difficult situation, it activates the limbic system - the source of our fight or flight response in the brain.

Our limbic system seeks the easiest, most instantaneous relief to whatever triggered it.

This relief can come in the form of a donut, a cocktail, a joint, a phone screen, a $50 blackjack hand, scrolling through social media, having sex, or other behaviors that evoke a quick spurt of dopamine - the neuro-chemical that gives a sense of pleasure.

But every time we cope with stress in this way, we risk our brains becoming reliant on that same behavior - and the dopamine produced by it - whenever we encounter a stressful situation.

This is the soil from which an addiction can root.

If left unchecked, your brain will start to see that behavior as essential to your survival - as important to your “well-being” as food and water.

Once addicted, the smallest stressor will trigger the desire for that behavior - and before you know it you’re eating a tub of ice cream every night, smoking a pack of cigarettes every day, buying things you don’t need with money you don’t have, or scrolling for hours through negative social media posts…

...just to get that hit of dopamine so you feel “good” again.

Imagine sitting next to your children and listening to their laughter, instead of thinking about your next “fix.” 

Or strolling hand-in-hand on the beach with your spouse and enjoying the sunset, instead of being distracted by self-loathing from your recent actions. 

How would it feel to go about your day without the scent of cigarette smoke lingering on your breath, your clothes, and your fingertips?

This can be your reality.

There is a way out of this addictive cycle so you can start focusing on the important things in life…

...instead of your vices.

Addiction isn’t a choice - but recovery is.

If left unaddressed, addictive behavior doesn’t just result in pain and suffering - it also costs a lot of money down the line to fix:

  • Outpatient Detox: $1,000 - $5,000
  • Inpatient Rehab: $6,000 - $20,000 for a 30-day program.

  • Outpatient Rehab: $5,000 - $10,000 for a 3-month program
  • Medications: Thousands of dollars per year ($4,700/year for methadone treatment)

And that’s not even including the cost of the addiction itself! 

For example:

An alcoholic who drinks a 12-pack a day spends over $3,000 per year on beer!

A smoker consuming two packs of cigarettes a day pays over $7,000 a year on cigarettes alone.

Not to mention the medical bills that result from these addictions.

To help everyone on the journey to recovery, we want to keep our prices low so that you can afford it.

P.S. Everyone who has an addiction needs resources. 

If you haven’t started fighting your addiction yet, this is the best way to start.

If you’ve already started, this will help tremendously.

You need every possible advantage in order to win this battle. 

As retired therapist and Centerpointe friend told me:

“Addictions and related problems can't be solved by talk therapy or drugs alone. It takes an integrated approach with mindfulness-based practices at the center.”
