DOPAMINE ADDICTION πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ™Œ

Why is it so easy to stare at your phone for hours on end? A recent study found that texting and social media trigger the release of dopamine in your brain.

Dopamine is commonly associated with pleasure but that isn’t why you can’t put down your phone. Dopamine plays another important role, it controls desire.

It tells you when you want something and compels you to get it. this is what pushes you to keep talking, clicking or scrolling.

Each time you do dopamine sends more pleasure signals to the brain. It’s a dangerous cycle because the longer you let it go on the harder it is to break.
