as there is an addiction behavior when the brain hold dearly something that makes dopamine, it confuses the right solution that will resolve the dopamine with wrong solution, it chooses both actions because of both generate dopamine(good feeling of predicted pleasure). but it takes the wrong one.
i noticed some time ago that because of how amygdala works people get confused between rest(kind of enjoyment feeling) and rest which is the real solution.
i noticed my son (3.5y) watches YouTube, when he is tiered he wants very much another video and another one. I started to see a pattern and noticed this ‘holding dear to something from confusion’,
i think when i will notice this i will stop it. using ahead of time decision, i believe one can do it to one self. by relaxing the holding and believing it will be good so too.
