First thing to do is to accept honestly that one has a particular addiction and would like to come out of it. One must chose growth option and set a goal of healthy and happy life free from addiction. Explore deep feelings, what is causing the addiction. Explore if there is any psychological basis, any insecurity or stress. Do not postpone. Work on these factors.
