In this thought-provoking book tha author guides the reader from a description of the existential problem of Psychological Addictions to a possible solution leading to a potentially positive outcome for the individual. The central theme of the book is anchored in the dismal nature of postmodern identity with a focus on searching for meaning in what we are and who we are. Living in this postmodern world naturally leads to a superficial existence and seemingly blind quest of acquiring nonessential and meaningless things designed to bolster our ill-defined, weak and vulnerable self. Although this leads to a false sense of happiness, it does not generate true contentment let alone sense of well-being. This book attempts to lead the reader on the path from the postmodernism dependence on Psychological Addictions to freedom, the expression of one's identity and true sense of well-being.
