Episode 3: Max
Max asks: “I need constant stimulation, and have a lot of addictive activities that I engage in. You might call these “soft” addictions, like over internetting, over eating, or being on my smart phone too much. I’m not sure what to do about this, or if there is anything I can do. Is there any way to “beat” an addiction, or is there really no choice in the matter?”
