Abstract
Cyberdépendant, joueur pathologique, dépendant affectif ou hyperactif sexuel, accro à l'alcool, au tabac, au cannabis, aux médicaments, au travail, au téléphone, au café... L'addiction nous guette tous. Pourquoi sommes-nous tous des dépendants potentiels ? Qu'est-ce qui fait basculer de l'usage festif à l'abus, puis à la dépendance ? Que recherche-t-on dans les substances ou les comportements addictifs ? Pourquoi est-on plus vulnérable à certains moments de sa vie ? Comment vit-on quand un plaisir devient un enfer ? Comment retrouve-t-on sa liberté ? Dans cet ouvrage de référence, les principales dépendances de notre siècle sont analysées par le Dr Lowenstein, spécialiste des addictions. A travers son expérience, il nous en explique les mécanismes et nous dit comment sortir de ce qu'il nomme " la maladie des émotions ".

Abstract
Nous sommes tous des « drogués » à tout un ensemble de comportements nécessaires qui nous procurent du plaisir ou nous soulagent d?une souffrance. Ces comportements de la vie quotidienne nous confrontent parfois à des effets de manque, d?habituation, de dépendance. Au-delà des drogues, des médicaments psychotropes, il s?avère que de nombreuses sources de stimulation font l?objet d?un investissement addictif. Nous pouvons consommer travail, télévision, internet, distractions, des personnes, l?amour, la sexualité? comme d?autres consomment de l?héroïne. Le Dr Éric Loonis construit pas à pas, en prenant appui sur les bases scientifiques de la neurobiologie, un modèle qui intègre toutes ces addictions, nous permettant de comprendre les liens entre les addictions maladives et toutes ces autres addictions de la vie quotidienne, dont nous sommes souvent les esclaves. L?ouvrage nous donne alors quelques pistes pour prendre de la distance par rapport à nos dépendances.
