A Podcast with Dr. Kathie Mathis

Emotional Addiction and What You Should Know About It

Do you know that you can also become addicted to feelings or emotions and that these feelings might also prevent you from going on in your life? Emotional addiction is the product of biological factors, culture, habits, attitudes, relationships, or the lack of spirituality. Emotional addiction or dependency is the state that you are usually or obsessively engaged in.

Emotions are holographic responses to our experiences. There are chemicals for each emotional state that we encounter. Hypothalamus produces peptides that are sent to thousands of receptors in a single cell. They attach and then produce signals as to what is going on in our cells. We become extremely addicted to an emotional state. We tend to stay addicted until we change our attachments, feelings, and convictions about things.

Emotions enrich our understanding, but our reliance on these emotions is a concern because they lead to biochemical addictions. When you think about all your encounters and the feelings you’ve connected to them — from the brain down to the very cells of your body — no wonder it is hard to leave unhealthy relationships, partners, food, and sex.

Testimonials

“Thank you for another great training experience last week! I greatly value all of the information you present, but I always get so much more from your training sessions.  As a professional building my knowledge and skills, I walk away with information and resources. As a survivor, however, I walk away with validation not only for the depth of trauma I experienced from abuse but for the work I did to get through that incredibly difficult reality. I walk away feeling seen and valued in where I am in my own journey of healing. For this, I deeply value your commitment and the honesty you bring – it allows people permission to show up honestly wherever they are.”
