In this day and age addiction can take many forms: alcohol, substance use, internet porn, gambling (including online), video gaming, shopping). Warning signs might include neglecting household duties, mounting debt, increased isolation and fewer social or out of the home activities, issues emerging around work performance, depressive symptoms, to name a few. In time any addiction can become more destructive as the addiction progresses. If you suspect you or your spouse is suffering from an addiction it is important that you address the matter quickly and directly. Professional counselling can also be helpful in confronting the problem and also dealing with the source of the addictive behaviors.
