Publisher's Summary

Say no to drugs! 

Have you wondered what drug addiction is and how it affects one’s life drastically? 

Have you wondered the kind of damage drug addiction does to the brain? 

Or.... 

Have you wondered how to invest in a life that is healthy with habits? Then, this guide is all you need to find the peace of mind you crave, so keep listening. 

When someone develops an addiction, the brain craves the reward of the substance. This is due to the intense stimulation of the brain’s reward system. In response, many continue use of the substance, unlocking a host of euphoric feelings and strange behavioral traits.

Long-term addiction can have severe outcomes, such as brain damage, and can even result in death.  

Drugs interfere with how neurons deliver, receive, and process signals through receptors. Some medications, like heroin and marijuana, can trigger neurons due to of their chemical structure imitates that of a pure neurotransmitter within the human anatomy. This permits the medication to attach on and trigger the nerves. Even though these medications mimic the brain's own chemicals they do not trigger neurons in precisely the exact same manner as a pure neurotransmitter, and they contribute to strange messages being transmitted via the network. 

Other medications, such as amphetamine or cocaine, may cause the nerves to discharge abnormally considerable quantities of pure neurotransmitters or stop the regular recycling of the brain chemicals by interfering with transporters. This also amplifies or interrupts the communication between nerves. 

In this book, you’ll learn: 

  • Drug addiction and brain damage 
  • Powerful solutions to stop all your addictions 
  • How addiction changes your brain 
  • How to invest in healthier habits that improves your thinking and places you before positivity.  

So if you’re willing to bring the desire to stop drug addiction, click “add to cart” now.

Positive changes!

This is the first book I've ever listened to in my life. It's really helpful and includes actual examples to demonstrate how it may be done. Any individual with a smidgeon of self-awareness should listen to this book, in my opinion.

Phenomenal! Practical.

The book is comprehensive and useful, everything packed into one psychological book. Not only did I learn new phrases and concepts, but I also learned the deeper, underlying reasons for why we do what we do. I adore this book and would suggest it to each and everyone. There's always a chance!

If you're trying to figure out why you or someone you care about participates in self-destructive behavior, this book will provide you with facts and insight in a fun, non-preachy, easy-to-listen approach. Strongly suggested.

Changed my life.

It was difficult to put this book down. It is chock-full of vital and useful information for both addicts and their families. I was particularly intrigued by the knowledge of physiological abnormalities and how they may be applied to kids suffering from mood and behavior issues.

This book is well worth your time to listen.

It's a striking portrayal of addiction and how addicts think, beautifully linked with the viewpoints of others who are touched by the addict. Most importantly, wisdom, knowledge, and experience are interpolated throughout the book to keep you on course for the greatest path to recovery.

Powerful.

After finishing the book and learning about the benefits of testing for biochemical imbalances, I felt a pang of regret thinking about what could have been if the book had been available and testing had been emphasized during my family's drug difficulties. This is a book I strongly recommend.
