I've got an addictive personality that hinders me in daily life. I think that totally avoiding the things that I'm addicted to is the only way to cure me.

Yet whenever I try to avoid them I feel great stress and sadness that impedes me even more until I give up and resume my bad habits.

My question is: is the stress+sadness caused by the difficulty of letting go? Also, is there a better way than going full cold turkey to lose addictions?(Consider that things like" gradually reducing" doesn't work)
>>
The things I'm addicted to are: junk food, internet browsing, videogames, porn+hentai. Also I have trouble with going to bed+waking up at healthy hours and doing physical activity.
>>
I've even tried pavlovian methods but it didn't work.
>>
Maybe I just need a little more willpower, but how?
>>
Do you guys have some magic trick for it? I've been searching for one for a long time.

> is the stress+sadness caused by the difficulty of letting go?
addiction desensitizes you, so that something that made you happy first, the more you do it the more you need of it so it can make you happy again,
and not only that, your brain also starts thinking that whatever you're addicted to is a basic need.


>Do you guys have some magic trick for it?
none, sorry, the only thing you have is your rational thought
I can only suggest that read up on what addiction is and what it does to your brain and then consciously think about why your doing what you are doing.
And when you know what it is it should be easier to know if you can handle it on your own or if you should seek professional help.

Here's a little rat experiment to show what even junk food can do to you http://www.naturalnews.com/029382_junk_food_rats.html

Take everything I said with grain of salt though. I don't have any psychological education.

No need to do anything about a self-destructive life style only because many other people do it too?
You make me sad.

You make me hungry. I'm going to get an avocado bacon burger and then go watch some anime/play assfaggots. Then I'll fap and by that time it'll be around 3am and I'll wake up at 12 and do it all over again.

Day by day bro, it hurts less as time goes on.

I know I might be about to get some shit for this but I think that if those things you mentioned are causing you harm you should go see a psychologist. There's nothing wrong with trying to figure out what's going on in your life that is keeping you from being the best version of yourself. I'll be glad to reply if you have any questions about this. I have been struggling with drug addiction and my therapist is really helping me through this.
