We are all vulnerable to addiction. Whether it's a compulsion to constantly check social media, binge eating, smoking, excessive drinking, or any other behaviors, we may find ourselves uncontrollably repeating. Why are bad habits so hard to overcome? Is there a key to conquering the cravings we know are unhealthy for us?
This book provides groundbreaking answers to the most important questions about addiction. Dr. Judson Brewer, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who has studied the science of addictions for 20 years, reveals how we can tap into the very processes that encourage addictive behaviors in order to step out of them. He describes the mechanisms of habit and addiction formation, then explains how the practice of mindfulness can interrupt these habits.
Weaving together patient stories, his own experience with mindfulness practice, and current scientific findings from his own lab and others, Dr. Brewer offers a path for moving beyond our cravings, reducing stress, and ultimately living a fuller life.

As someone who previously went through a depressive phase, and takes a keen interest in mental health - I pretty much bought this on impulse... I actually ran into the book while searching for an image that represented dopamine, in an attempt to make fun of people that repeatedly asked eachother to follow their instagram.
I already had a vague idea of the addictive nature of the world around us, especially come the dawn of technology - this made the book more readable and perhaps buying it was just so I could confirm my views.
That said, I've found the book to be very impactful on my views of mental health in a range of areas - from others, to relationships, to myself.
My father had pleaded me to take up meditation since I was just reaching my teenage years, which I put off each day. I'm a individual of facts and figures, I know what I know, etc...
If you have a shred of doubt of the usefulness of meditation, or fail to take time to address your mental state - this book is a must read.
Be warned however, while the book is by no means large - the writer struggles to dampen his vocabulary from the highs of Doctorates jabbering technical jargon to eachother. His use of metaphors can help, but you could find yourself opening somewhat irrelevant wikipedia articles just to maintain a grasp of the story he is telling.
That's worth noting too, this book is not solely facts and figures presented in a line. The writer makes an attempt to tell a story of his own life alongside the teaching. This story telling isn't hugely intrusive but if you don't like the occasional snippet of the writers' personal life then you might be perturbed.
A grand read so far.
Fingers crossed it will stay that way.
