DefeatAddiction.com was established with the purpose of providing time-tested methods of getting past various addictions. Our website was established by a group of people who have been personally affected by addictions. Our common bond of being hurt through either our own or loved ones addictions brought us together to create awareness and convey facts about various addictions. We feel it’s important to share success stories as well as methods to the madness that have helped people overcome drug, alcohol, gambling, and other addictions. We’re a rather new site, but we are working on getting bio’s and photos of each of us in the near future.
We do have a resource we highly recommend, and it’s called “Overcoming Addictions by Dr. Phil.”
In some situations we’ll offer suggestions about therapy or alternatives. For example, you’ll see the site has many advertisements for electronic cigarettes. Many consumers are finding electronic or “e cigarettes” as a great alternative to tobacco products. While they do have nicotine in them for the most part, there is a nicotine free (o mg) solution that many people are finding as a great social substitute to tobacco cigarettes. While the health benefits – and potential perils – are not yet known, these vaporized products are among the most advanced on the market today for people who want an alternative to smoking tobacco products. If you are looking for an alternative to smoking tobacco products such as cigarettes – take a long hard look at electronic cigarettes. Numerous brands are sponsoring this website and we have read many success stories from long time tobacco smokers, as well as our own experimenting, so we’re led to believe they are here to stay in society.
Other addictions, such as alcohol and gambling, are widely discussed on this website. We’re all for helping people quit their addiction and find long term help that will allow them to abstain from falling back into their addiction. Look for many informational articles as well as places that are around to help out.
Donald, one of our editors, has started helping others overcome an alcohol addiction. You can discuss alcohol addictions with Donald via his expert page on Wizpert.
We’re also here as a support group. Were you addicted to something at one point in time? Are you addicted to certain things? If so, use our comment section as a sound board to ask for help and suggestions. We’re going to be offering help and suggestions throughout the course of time, and we understand some people may need human encouragement or to read about successes others have had. That’s where our comment sections come in. Under each respected category, feel free to leave your name and comments. If you need to ask for help, ask. Be anonymous if you want, we’ll never share your information.
We hope to cover more addictions, such as: sex addictions, coffee addictions, and yes, even facebook addictions.
The thoughts, suggestions, and words of encouragement are to help people defeat addictions. This information is to be used at your discretion and it’s only offered to help. If you are in dire straights with an addiction or feel you need emergency attention, by all means, follow the proper channels. We’re going to be putting up a resource guide for various associations and groups that can help.
If we can ever offer any support, please get in touch using our comment section. Your comments will remain invisible until they are approved so we will get in touch and not make the comment visible if requested.
To making “quitting” cool!
