When people think of addiction, the most common thought is drug or alcohol addiction and the stereotypical image of people with these addictions, but as Jason Hartman’s guest, life coach David Essel, explains, addiction comes in numerous forms and is very prevalent in our country. In fact, he guarantees that every person in this country is suffering from one form of addiction or another. Examples of addictions include such things as: spending, greed, power, being right, controlling others, nicotine, food, gossip and many more.
David is passionate about helping people understand addictions and learning how to lead full and inspiring lives. His focus is on finding The One Thing™ that will radically change your life. David stresses the importance of not viewing one addiction to be worse than another because it opens the door to walking away from recovery. He shares his own story of alcohol addiction and the view he held before recovery versus the view he realized once he was sober. David also discusses the process of recovery, which starts with becoming accountable to someone else.
