A person is addicted when he/she is compelled to do any activity repeatedly and to have a psychological dependence on it. Drinking alcohol, smoking, and taking drugs are the most common addictions. Psychotherapy, counseling, meditation, yoga and hypnotherapy can all help people cope with the physical withdrawal symptoms. In all cases, strong willpower is essential.

To support the body in de-toxifying itself from addictions, maintain a wholesome diet with plenty of fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables.
