When breaking addictions, it’s always hard to find the way around them. You want the easy way. You want the way that will be the least painful. Unfortunately, there is not any easier way to break addictions. That being said, there are tools to help you through them.
Addicaid is an app that can help you break a bad habit or an addiction. Addicaid’s mission is to “reduce the social cost of addiction by expanding treatment and innovating solutions.”
I didn’t want to suggest anything without trying this out for myself, so I decided to download the app and see what it offers. I thought Addicaid would only be helpful for people struggling with hard drugs, but that wasn’t the case. It provides help for shopaholics, food addicts, and even pornography addicts. I’ve been using it to help overcome my intense love of sugar.
Addicaid has helpful tips and daily step-by-step instructions to make your urges less frequent. Not only that, but you get to interact with people who are struggling with addictions just like you. There are hundreds of people who post about their triumphs and relapses through the Addicaid dashboard on the app. You can interact with them by encouraging perseverance, congratulating successes, and asking for advice.
Sometimes, even when you’re surrounded by a strong community, it doesn’t seem to help the urges. That is when you can turn to the hotline numbers Addicaid provides. These hotlines have professionals waiting to help when you feel the itch start to come on. Or if you just need to talk to someone about the next step, the hotlines help with that as well.
I’m not saying that Addicaid will cure you, but it sure is a helpful and free resource that aims to improve the world.
Addictions aren’t easy to overcome, but with amazing resources and a positive support system, you can overcome anything.
