The Addictive Personality: Understanding the Addictive Process and Compulsive Behavior by Craig Nakken

Posted at — Jun 3, 2017

A good explanation of how the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but connection. Could’ve been less repetitive though. The parts about Higher Powers might rub some people the wrong way.

The beginning (setting up the mindset for thinking about addiction) and the chapter about pleasure-seekers and power-seekers vs "normal people" were of the most interest.
