Many people assume an addict only refers to someone who is an alcoholic, chain smoker or drug user with a "hard" habit. But in Unhooked: How To Quit Anything [Skyhorse Publishing, $14.95], a book I co-authored with the addiction specialist who helped me quit my long-term addictions to cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana, I show how you can also get hooked on such "soft" habits as Facebook, over-exercising, drinking too much diet soda or eating too much ice cream. Regardless of what kind of habit you want to break, here are ways I recommend to begin the process. Remember, when you get rid of a toxic habit in your life you are leaving room for something beautiful to take its place.
