CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The third in an all-new series exploring how to cope with problems of the mind
What we know about the workings of the human brain has increased immeasurably
in recent times. We now know exactly which parts of the brain react when we
feel panicked, depressed, or overwhelmed emotionally. It is this new science
which can help us to understand how our brain generates the feelings we
experience and, in turn, how we can control those feelings. Addiction is a
wide-ranging condition where sufferers are compulsively occupied with an
activity, habit or substance. Shopping addiction, for example, has been
recognised as one of the fastest growing addictions, currently affecting 1 in
30 adults. This book explains the physiological basis of all forms of
addiction, helping us to understand what lies at the root of a specific
compulsion. Advice on drugs and cognitive therapy exercises are included to
help sufferers tackle their addictions as fully and independently as possible.
