Addiction affects approximately 40 million Americans aged 12 and over as defined by a recent Columbia University study. Excessive use and abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs account for the substances that many Americans are addicted to.
Process addictions such as sex and love, Internet and pornography, gambling, eating, money, also create the same problems in people’s lives as the physical addictions listed above. Even though process addictions do not put chemicals in the body as substance addictions do, the brain is still just as controlled by process behaviors which creates the same negative consequences in people’s lives, such as, loss of money, marriage infidelity, isolation, depression, anxiety, health problems, among others.
