The Reason Behind Your Addiction with Dr. Daniel Lieberman

How does dopamine shape your desires—both positively and negatively?

Dopamine is one of many neurotransmitters produced in your brain and is most commonly associated with pleasure. But there’s actually more to it than that. It’s the basis of motivation, incentivizing you to do things because you want something. And while that can lead to success and discoveries, it can also result in addictions of all shapes and sizes.

I’m excited to talk to our guest today, Dr. Daniel Lieberman, MD. Dr. Lieberman is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University. He’s also the co-author of the international bestseller, The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity — and Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race.

The nature of dopamine is to push for more. But that actually shifts your focus from the present moment into the future where you only see what you don’t have. That can lead to feeling chronically dissatisfied and unable to enjoy the things you’ve worked hard for. Listen in as Dr. Lieberman shows you how you can leverage this powerful chemical to go after the good and let go of the bad.
