Drugs, alcohol, sex. These are all very familiar addictions and it's common for them to be indulged in secretly. How about shopping, playing video games, eating? These are activities that, when done in moderation, are just fine.

But how do you know when you've crossed the line? How do you know when you're addicted? Especially when you're not necessarily hiding what you do, and your family and friends don't see it as an issue. They may even be indulging in these activities with you and find it quite normal.

That's what we want to talk about today - the things you may be doing in plain sight that are actually hidden addictions. Are you really using them to escape from something stressful in your life? Find out today's show. We'll discuss the possible source, the signs, and the solution.
