When you hear the term “addiction,” it usually means abusing substances such as drugs and alcohol. The truth, however, is that addiction isn’t always about a substance.
The term refers to any substance, behavior, or situation that gives you rewarding effects, encouraging you to keep seeking this reward despite the consequences you face. Some common addictions to different substances include gambling, passion, and high-risk / adrenaline activities.
While not all addictions are dangerous or life-changing, they can have a very significant impact on our life. By understanding and recognizing these addictions, we can take steps to minimize their impact and protect ourselves from potential risks.
What are you addicted to? Here’s what your zodiac sign reveals:
Aries (March 21 – April 19): fast-paced lifestyle and caffeine
When you run at 100 km / h, taking everything at rocket speed with no indication of deceleration, you will be treated with a high dose of adrenaline. Dependent on how it makes you feel, you keep moving forward without considering the need for a break.
Building on your love of caffeine to keep going will have you running until you are completely exhausted.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): food
You love luxury in life, from the best high-end clothes to the latest gadgets – you love living the good life. Of all the “good things” in life, the one you can’t do without is food. From sweet desserts to decadent meals, you love everything.
Unfortunately, you may not notice your love of food getting out of hand until you see it reflected on the scale.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): acquaintance
Even though you are known as the social butterfly who likes to have fun, you have an incredibly deep mind. You go through life with a high level of curiosity, eager to find out everything you can about the world you live in.
You are addicted to the knowledge that you can become obsessed with learning, forgetting everything around you.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Thinking too much
You have a bad habit of getting trapped in your mind, overthinking each situation to an extent that most can only begin to understand. It is a black hole and too much time spent in this darkness will lead to being too critical of yourself and those around you.
Also, you can get so caught up in a situation that you are blind to the truth.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): yourself
Powerful and in control, you know your worth in this world. You are obsessed with the version of yourself you describe in the world around you, going very far to maintain your youth.
This can manifest as an obsession with exercise or diet, heavy shopping for clothing and jewelry, or the use of plastic surgery. It’s a slippery slope …
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): cleaning
You think there is room for everything and you can’t stand when things are not going well. You want organization, cleanliness, and order, or anything else that can cause extreme anxiety.
If you lose control, the need for an organization can even approach OCD, which can have a significant impact on your life.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): purchases
There’s nothing wrong with a little retail therapy, but you’re going to the extreme. Whether you’re celebrating your biggest hits or trying to get over your latest breakup, you think shopping is the answer to everything.
There’s a noticeable drop – your bank account and credit limit can only handle so much!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): passion
Known for being the most passionate of signs, you have an unmatched personal motivation. Are you ready to try anything once, willing to experiment? The call to you is the physical act, rather than the emotional connection that some bring to their personal life.
Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you are in a relationship or switching between connections as long as you get what you want. This can rapidly escalate, take control of your life – not to mention the risk of STDs.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Taking risks
Always ready for adventure, nothing gets your blood pumping more than pushing you to the limit. Whether you jump from a plane or play with the luck of your life: the riskier the behavior, the greater the adrenaline rush.
However, with each activity, you feel the need to push yourself further, which can ultimately cost you everything.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): work
Focused on details and data, it’s no wonder you’re in your element when you start working. You are a very perfectionist, you refuse to walk away from a project until you feel like it is done as perfectly as possible, no matter how long it may take.
You will sacrifice the rest of your life for this job, including sleep, which will ultimately lead to exhaustion if you don’t control it.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): drinking
For a long time, you have found that drinking has the power to silence the voices in your head, which you otherwise would not have realized. Whether you’re drinking beautifully aged scotch or a glass of cheap canned wine, you’re looking for both the buzz it gives you and the numbing effect it has on you.
There is too good, however. You have to be careful not to let your need for drunkenness take over your life.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): everything
You have a compelling personality, regularly pushing everything to the extreme. You don’t love or just enjoy the things in your life, instead, you throw yourself out the window and indulge in any vice that you can take advantage of.
You probably already have bad habits and will only add them if you don’t take the necessary steps to control this aspect of your personality.
