Know Your DNA

 

I found this article pretty controversial but yet I also feel it could be an important discussion, maybe this will strike up a conversation with your family members and helping understand behaviors within your family unit and yourself. There is no right or wrong here.

addiction is a complex issue with multiple contributing factors, and research has shown that genetics play a significant role in an individual's risk for developing an addiction

Of course, having a higher risk doesn’t guarantee that you will become addicted. Your lifestyle, choices, health, and environment are what determine your likelihood of addiction.

As with any DNA test, there are pros and cons to genetic testing.

The benefits of genetic testing will help you make better informed decisions about your health and wellness and the drawbacks can be a trigger of negative emotions related to your own personal self and your family.

DNA testing can be an effective planning tool, but it can also be a Pandora's Box. It can open doors to things you may not be prepared to face yet. 

If you have a family history of addiction it doesn't mean you will have an addiction, but it does predispose you to this disease. Only you can make the best decisions for you and take control of your mind and boy.
