FIGHTING ADDICTIONS WITH HOMEOPATHY
Addiction is a continued repetitive behaviour, a condition which arises when a person engages in an activity or ingests a substance which can be pleasurable but interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, work, relationships and health when its continued use becomes a compulsion.
Addiction includes impaired control over substance or behaviour, pre occupation with the substance or behaviour, continued indulgence despite the consequences and denial of the above.
