The Craving Mind: From Cigarettes to Smartphones to Love- Why We Get Hooked and How We Can Break Bad Habits (Part 2)

About the Course:

This book provides groundbreaking answers to the most important questions about addiction. Dr. Judson Brewer reveals how we can tap into the very processes that encourage addictive behaviors in order to step out of them. In Part 2, he explains how the practice of mindfulness can interrupt the habits outlined in Part 1- smoking, technology, ourselves, distraction, thinking, and love. 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.

This course is based on Part 2 of the book, The Craving Mind: From Cigarettes to Smartphones to Love- Why We Get Hooked and How We Can Break Bad Habits created by Judson Brewer, M.D., Ph.D. in 2017.
