Addiction vs Happiness

  • Addiction is a progressive narrowing of the things that bring you pleasure.
  • Happiness is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure. The former emerges passively.

The latter takes work, deliberate abstinence from no-effort-to-high-dopamine behaviors & drugs. Like directed attention, conscious understanding, mindfulness etc.
