Your Brain Supports Addictions — a Key to Breaking Them

We all have heard of Newton’s First Law of Motion, where “an object in motion tends to stay in motion…” The mind acts along a similar principle — we call it “habit.” What happens when a habit becomes something that can’t easily be stopped? We call that an “addiction.”...
