Why You Are Addicted and How to Break Free

Talitha Fosh, foreword by Adwoa Aboah

This book is for anyone who struggles with addictive behaviour. In it, psychotherapist Talitha Fosh sheds light on the true meaning of addiction, looking at the subtle ways it can manifest itself without our awareness. She explores why we often seek external factors to change the way we feel internally, reframes addiction away from the extreme “addict” stereotype and provides practical tips and tools to help readers break any self-destructive cycle they may find themselves in, using examples from social media and gaming to alcohol and food.

Hooked breaks down the journey of addiction into four key pillars: discovery, highs of addiction, lows and denial, and recovery. With applications of Talitha’s principles to scenarios applicable to our modern lives, case studies from real people and insights into her own struggles with addiction, this book is the perfect companion for your journey toward freedom from addictive habits.

TALITHA FOSH is a qualified psychotherapist who works primarily on addiction with millennial and Gen Z patients. Find out more at: www.talithafosh.com
