Abstract/Excerpt/Description

As human beings we seek relief and pleasure in our lives, whether that is having a drink or a bite to eat after a long hard day of work or enjoying family and friends during a night on the town. However, as the old saying goes, "Too much of anything is not good for you." Historically, people have excessively engaged in addictive behaviors like drinking, gambling, sex, and shopping. Behavioral addictions can lead to problematic behaviors that put the individual at risk or in danger and possibly lead to other psychological disorders.
