Objective: The purpose of the present study was to compare addiction memory intensity and self-control in successful and unsuccessful addiction withdrawal. Method: In this causal-comparative study, the population of the study consisted of male addicts who referred to Rasht addiction treatment clinics (District one) in 2018. Among them, 45 individuals with successful addiction withdrawal (more than 2 years) and 45 individuals with unsuccessful addiction withdrawal were selected using convenience sampling method. For data collection, Addiction Memory Intensity Scale (Chen et al., 2018) and Self-Control Scale-short version (Tangny et al., 2004) were used. Finally, the data were analyzed using multi-variate variance analysis. Results: According to the results, levels of addiction memory intensity and self-control were different in successful and unsuccessful individuals in addiction quit (p <0/01). In other words, successful individuals in addiction withdrawal received lower scores in addiction memory intensity and higher scores in self-control in comparison to unsuccessful individuals in addiction withdrawal (p <0/01). Conclusion: Considering the results, addiction memory intensity and self-control are important factors that can be influential in successful addiction withdrawal. Hence, it is possible to increase success in addiction withdrawal by designing interventions that reduce addiction memory intensity and increase self-control.
