Latent Impulsive Thinking (Syndrome), (LITS) is a theoretical pioneer in the redefining of addiction and is conjoined with individualized, practical, alternative approaches to the decades-old conventional treatment. The belief of Latent Impulsive Thinking (LITS) is based on the premise that lifestyle behavioral choices, though they can cause multiple diseases, are not a disease in themselves. The foundation of Latent Impulsive Thinking (LITS) is that all behaviors are a learned trait that is an impulsive auto-reactive result of the redundant addictive thinking which over time has burnt electrochemical neural pathways in the CNS acquired by internal and external influential triggers, introduced from the surrounding environment and conditioned by our neurochemistry.
'Consciously Pause' is a lifelong practical approach to override Latent Impulsive Thinking (Syndrome's) addictive thinking distortions and progressively impulsive and destructive behavioral patterns. It is based upon identification of internal (emotions, states of being) triggers and external (environmental) influences that are the causations of electrochemical neural pathways that over time have been ingrained into the CNS resulting in an addictive, locked in thinking that protects its belief system of alleviating the symptoms caused by the above-mentioned triggers and continually implements the accelerated harmful cycle of impulsive, auto-responsive learned behavior. The practice of 'Consciously Pause' creates new and alternative neural pathways resulting in a persons ability to slow down and use a process of thought, with the ability to then choose an appropriate action as opposed to the triggered addictive thought and redundant impulsive action.
