Dr. Rory Reid, a UCLA psychologist, discusses how mindfulness can help individuals address cravings and urges to engage in addictive behaviors. Dr. Reid suggests "mindfulness" approaches in therapy suspend judgment about addictive cravings that can lead to unhealthy behaviors. "Cravings are neither good nor bad" and Dr. Reid indicates that patients, through mindfulness, can learn to "co-exist" with cravings without acting on them. Patients who embrace their cravings through "mindfulness" are able to increase their tolerance for these uncomfortable experiences that are often part of the process of change.
