#67 ADHD & Addiction

I just thought I had an addictive personality. Turns out that I had undiagnosed ADHD. 

For me it was food (sugar), alcohol & shopping. I used them as a way to both escape the painful parts of my life & to feel good. 

All addictions have one thing in common: DOPAMINE. 

And while many articles will tell you we become addicted because we are "dopamine seeking"... I don't fully agree. 

In this episode we explore: 

  • What addiction looks like & how it develops in people with ADHD

  • The 2 things that I believe lead us towards addiction

  • The work of Anna Lembke & the role of dopamine

In this episode I recommend & refer to Anna Lembke's book: Dopamine Nation
