If you’ve ever been called a workaholic, you may have wondered how much truth there might be to the label. Perhaps you’re in denial, but at some point you need to face the truth.
Being a workaholic might look good on your resume, but it can ruin relationships and make it hard to find true satisfaction in life. And the dangers in being a workaholic are not few.
It can lead to substance addiction, either because that helps you keep producing or as a way to cope with the relationship setbacks that result from your work addiction. It can also cause considerable mental and physical health consequences.
