Who is a Real Workaholic?

Raoul Rivera from Ecuador

Raoul Rivera points out the difference between those who work a lot because they have to and those who work a lot because they want to.

Workaholism is a big problem because, like any addiction, it can be very dangerous and can affect certain aspects of your life. Workaholics usually spend a lot of time in their offices; some of them spend 60 to 70 hours a week there, and others stay even longer.

Workaholics usually spend a lot of time in their offices; some of them spend 50 to 70 hours a week there, and others stay even longer.

There is a difference between people who spend that much time at work because they have to and people who do it because they actually enjoying working long periods of time.

People who work a lot because they have to usually work that much because they need money for their rent, their car payments, or their children's education.

Those who have to work to pay expenses are the ones who have health problems like stress or even heart attacks. On the other hand, the people who just enjoy working usually don't have as many health problems.

However, there is a problem that these two types share, and that is family problems. These problems are usually caused by the absence of this person at home. This can lead to divorce and cause problems for their kids.

I think that workaholics should realize they have a problem and try to get some help from families and support groups . They need to learn that there are more things in like than work, like spending time with their families or having a hobby. Then they could break their addiction and also solve their family problems.
