We consider the following as self- evident:
A) All behavior is learned. Behaviors fall under the categories of Abstinence, Experimental, Casual, Habitual, Abusive, Impulsive. (Impulsive is the Addiction Disorder.) Addiction is a thought disorder. Addict, from the Latin, Addictus; means to devote, enslave.
B) Lifestyle choices are not diseases. Lifestyle choices can cause multiple diseases.
C) Trigger Stimuli (internal), and Primary Environmental Influences (external) are major behavioral determinants.
D) Impulsiveness, immaturity, entitlement, self-centered, shame, hurt, anger, fear are some examples of internal factoring issues of behavior. (Trigger Stimuli)
E) Peer Pressure, experience, (prior action, observation), drugs, sleep, nutrition, exercise, physical appearance, and weather, are some examples of external factoring issues. (Primary Environmental Influences.)
F) People are processing vast amounts of information, at greatly accelerated paces, starting from determinately younger ages of peoples lives than ever in our history. Simultaneously, there is a disparate increase in life expectancy, resulting in natural and emotional maturation processes developing at decisively later ages and stages of our lives. G) We are no longer 'growing out of our teens,' while still in our teens. Inappropriate behaviors, speech, and thinking, which includes issues of impulsiveness, immaturity, self-centered, and attention deficit.* (* Included also, but not limited to created problems and issues of: Domestic, Socialization, Motivation, Education, Shame, Anxiety, Credibility, Fear.) This progression within a preeminent number of people later in life will create chronically ingrained traits, causing an increase in prevalent triggers for impulsive action, and augmenting destructive behavior as prominent by a proliferation of increasing number of individuals for longer periods of time. Currently, it is the Neuroscientists, brain and CNS mappers that are achieving the most understanding. Our longstanding beliefs to theorems and then into practices ('Consciously Pause'), regarding the predominant physiological and biochemical activities of a person's central nervous system in regard to addictive thinking and impulsive behavior finally has strong and conclusive evidence of the lengthening of biomarkers, development stages and functioning ages as mentioned above, per current studies written about in the Oxford Academic, and the Gerontological Society of America, both very professional, legitimate, and highly regarded as authoritative on the subject.
H) The statistics of destructive behavioral recurrence are continually unacceptable. (Bureau of Justice Statistics.)
