Lesson 1: Dopamine addiction follows from our desire to stop feeling miserable.

Going through life, there’s plenty of misery and unhappiness we’ll face, just as there are many happy and beautiful moments we’ll witness. However, it seems that we’re not too good when it comes to dealing with pain, so we try to cover it up with small, but effective doses of pleasure.

Frankly, everyone has an addiction. If you feel bored , chances are you’ll turn to your phone for a quick distraction. When you feel numb or sad, you can always drown that feeling in alcohol or other drugs, just like you can treat anxiety and stress with just a pill.
