Do we know what causes the brain worm sensation? As far as I can tell it is linked to addiction and recovery as it seems to only get triggered by thoughts related to topics of possible addiction. I also wonder if people addicted to healthy things like working out get these same worms. Is it like an inner child trowing a tantrum internally or more like a wormhole. I can't quite figure that out. It also can feel a little like a headache, but it is more focused and directional.
Is there a way to use the worms to push the brain into a more plastic state? Can we rewire these nerve channels any way we want or must we waste them by letting them fade?
