Ronnie Landis | Addiction Mindset: Don’t Be A Slave to Dopamine (The True Path To Inner Peace)

“Addiction is a compulsive habit or a repetitive pattern that has become such because we've developed a maladaptive relationship with an external coping mechanism as a way to numb, sedate, or medicate the God-shaped hole inside of our soul.” – Ronnie Landis

Wellness + Wisdom Episode 560

Power Quotes From The Show

What You Gravitate Towards Isn't Random

“The external things that we gravitate towards aren't random. There's actually a one-for-one energetic vibrational frequency connection to how we feel within ourselves, the things that we're choosing, and the effect that the things we choose, have on our body or consciousness.”Ronnie Landis

The Addiction Symptoms

“We live in a culture that values stimulation, overwhelm, and stress. These are things that are symptoms of a deep problem that we are starting to acknowledge but nobody really knows what to do about it because we're also addicted to the compounds, the substances, and the patterns that produce the symptoms themselves.”Ronnie Landis

Addiction Probability

“The probability of something becoming addictive is how much dopamine it produces and how easily accessible it is to you in any given moment.”Ronnie Landis

Dopamine + Anticipation of The Experience

“Dopamine is produced as an anticipation for a future event. You get dopamine from the anticipation of a particular experience that's posed in the future. But once you have the experience, that dopamine baseline goes down. You get a little bit of a hit upon the moment of arrival but then the more you do it, the less of the pleasure you get, and then you need to do more of it to keep the dopamine baseline steady.”Ronnie Landis
