A World Of Addiction

  • Starts On: 06/05/2021

  • Duration: 60 mins

  • Cost: R 120

This event is aimed at teenagers who want (or need) to hear an honest sharing of a life led by the compulsive use of both media and substances. In this Live Q and A, Josh honestly shares his journey - beginning with his exposure to pornography at age 9 and his progressive use of drugs and alcohol to “manage” his mental health.  Josh reflects on opportunities lost and how his life could have been less chaotic, had he known the information he shares now, and the real need for teens to build and practice healthy digital habits, to avoid a lasting negative impact in their lives.

KEY TAKE AWAYS

► The neuroscience behind addiction and the cost of escapism

► Controlling vs being controlled by tech

► Modelling of vulnerability, breaking of the shame around needing support with

behaviours teens cannot seem to change

► Understand the underlying escape from pain or desire to feel good which drives

compulsive use

► Teens leave with a simple framework of understanding healthy rewards, and the cost of not dealing with the core issues which drive compulsive behaviour
