When Adrenaline Addiction Takes Over

Apr 10, 2008
There are certain people born with a natural tendency for impulsiveness. Quite
a number of these tend to lean towards gambling, the driving reason often being adrenaline addiction.

When the central nervous system needs more stimulation, it seeks to find bigger thrills to feed on.

It is known that forex trading can provide huge thrills, and to approach this business allowing the adrenaline addiction to dictate, can turn out to be very costly.

When muddy data play a part in forming an opinion, and added to this, decisions are made spurred on by adrenaline addiction, it can be a formula for disaster.

Adrenaline addiction can make people sacrifice quality to get instant results. This can lead them to take steps which are not properly planned, and more often than not, result in failure. In forex trading one must beware of this problem.

Many executives and leading political figures are prone to this kind of addiction, which explains why at times, they tend to make certain hurried regrettable decisions. Adrenaline addicts are not frowned upon like some alcoholics, but are given full marks for being constantly on the go, and praised for their relentless efforts to try and achieve their goal.

Bookmakers and casinos are rescued time and time again, by shrewd punters, who when thinking clearly are hard to beat, but when under pressure, allow adrenaline addiction to take over, and start making erratic decisions which costs them dearly.

We have all seen some very high wired tennis stars, boxers, film stars, and footballers, who thrive when constantly in the limelight, only to dwindle to serious boredom when out of it, which in turn, leads to ther thrill seeking that can have serious overtones.

The bottom line is to stay in control and keep cool at all times. You have to slow down sometimes to win.

The ability to create and sustain adrenaline may be of help to propel an executive or sportsman forward, but it can backfire. Wear and tear on nerves and tissues will eventually be the result.

Adrenaline is what our body fabricates to give us a boost to meet a challenge. When there is a crisis, adrenaline turns up because there is a need to make a fight of it

There are people who just will not let go and must be buzzing non stop. They will be on the phone all the time, make notes and calculations. Even if they seem to be relaxing, they are planning their next moves. Hyperactive people are constantly in action, but can eventually start getting burnt out and become bored. At that point, they will tend to seek those higher and higher thrills, in order to get the adrenaline going,
since smaller challenges will not be good enough to get it produced. It is only a matter of time before they are in danger of getting into troubled waters.

It is not all that hard to become an adrenaline junkie, and although on the face of it, to be hyperactive would seem to be beneficial in some line of business but as I said, it can bring about hurried decisions and mistakes. In the business such as forex, banking, betting, bookmaking, driving etc. making even one mistake, can be catastrophic.

The possibility of what adrenaline addiction can cause, must never be underestimated and must be borne in mind, especially by those who are in positions where there is no room for mistakes.
