There are many things people become addicted to, mostly because humans are vulnerable, delicate creatures.

It’s easier for us to cope with life if we have a vice or something we turn to when we need a boost.

However, sometimes we don’t realize how easy it is to become addicted to simple, everyday things.

Here’s a list of a few things people become addicted to.

1. Caffeine

The most common of all things people become addicted to easily is caffeine.

It just never feels like there are enough hours in the day and whether you’re lacking in sleep or will be pulling an all-nighter, caffeine is the go-to for most people.

Plus it’s a great beverage for chilly, early mornings or eating sweets.

However, after regularly drinking coffee for a while and taking a break, you might feel yourself suffering with withdrawal symptoms like headaches, mood swings and nauseous.

2. Attention

Attention

This is a dangerous one because people who crave attention can end up doing harmful things to get it.

People who like attention do so because it boosts their self confidence and makes them feel important.

However, people who are addicted to attention are usually perceived as people who are insincere and “annoying”.

3. Shopping

Shopping is also a dangerous addiction because it affects finances.

Many people who are addicted to shopping usually hide their expenses from their partners which can ultimately ruin their relationship as finances are the number one reasons married couples split.2

In addition, shopping addictions can lead to consumer debt.

The best way to come off your shopping addiction is to visit a financial advisor – an advisor will help you put in to perspective how much money you’re spending and what you should actually be doing with it.

4. Eating

Eating

When we eat we actually feel a natural high and that’s why people “eat their emotions” when they’re feeling upset.2

Eating food is a must for all animals but nourishment and sustenance can turn in to gluttony and indulging in unnecessary cravings.

The best way to avoid becoming addicted to food is by avoiding sugars as they are supposedly the most addicting of all foods.
