I am interested in obtaining a link to your two chapters on habits and addictions that were not included in your feeling great book. I have obtained them once before, but I am having trouble finding them. Please send me the link again. I tried going through the normal process again but that did not work. If there is a charge, please let me know.
The free chapters offer is on the bottom of the home page of feelingggood.com. Not sure if you can do it twice, though. d
Dr. Burns, I am a huge fan of your books and podcast, and I enjoyed your talk today on Habits and Addictions as well as your “Feeling Great” bonus chapter on the same. I struggle with a habit of internet surfing (news, social media, etc.) when I’m avoiding boring or unpleasant tasks at work. Do you feel that motivational and cognitive techniques are sufficient for addressing this habit when it often feels like my actions operate below the level of consciousness? For example, I often start surfing the internet before I even consciously realize what I’m doing! Additionally, I’ve found stimulus control to be difficult for this habit given that I work on the computer all day. Any advice on addressing this particular habit, or similar ones, would be much appreciated. Thank you for all of your work helping people!
Check out the free chapter(s) offer at bottom of my homepage. Read, do exercises, then you can ask your question. Will post on Ask David, perhaps. d
