I am having a hard time loosing some of my weird addictions... my addictions are really stupid if you think f them being for a 30+ year old adult.... as a young adult (in my 20s) I had them fairly in control and only used to fall back on them when I was nervous or stressed. Now that my situation has worsend and I have been stressed and palpitating 24 hrs a day 7 days a week for the last 2-2.5 years almost. The addictions are back and worse, I find them really hard to shake them off. and they are embarrasing as hell .... In someways I guess I have wired myself to think that they are making me relaxed a bit...Does anyone else feel the same...Are there anyone who have had success loosing such addictions.

I was addicted to drugs in my early 20's, if it didn't mess me up I don't know if I would have stopped. I think by now tho I would have, I'm more mature now and wouldn't want to spend my life getting high.

Take it one day at a time but have a plan. Avoid the triggers. I've overcome porn, bad OCD, self harming, smoking, etc.

I've been off heroin and other opiates since 2012 after almost a decade of addiction. Get yourself a new routine, stay busy, and take things one day at a time. It gets easier as time goes by.
