Addiction. In our world there’s nothing more terrifying than that. All these psychopathic killers, violent husbands and even evil spirits, they are all frightening examples of chaos. However as true as that might be we tend to overlook the fact that at the end of the day it is their addictions that make them so. All addictions bring you to only gain a considerable amount of pain unless you use that deadly feature the right way. For example, craving success including fame and glory. Now that by itself is just plain normal, however if it gets out of hand and you start going to just about any extent then you can say it’s time to stop your addiction.
Every person on this earth today faces some form of addiction. Some enjoy the ride while others are cautious from the start of it so they fortunately can’t reach the finish line.
Now again I am not saying addiction is bad, what I mean is that all the people who drink, smoke, love someone, hate someone and so on let the resulting obsession control them. We should always be in control of everything that we do and every decision about what we should do. Simple rule to follow if you don’t want to get corrupted.
We all know that there are millions, even billions who go to bars and have shots, sit with their closest chums at home and share a big bottle of Jack Daniels. That’s fine, we live in a world where not everyone can celebrate with champagne. There are reasons to drink as long as those come once in a long while, the point is to not become an alcoholic. Some find getting drunk as fun, these people are the ones who have the ability to mingle with every type of people, even aliens.
Although you know, I really cannot fathom why a person would really get themselves addicted to something that doesn’t give them anything. I mean truly, what does a cigarette present you with that I don’t know about? Honestly I want a reason that makes up for reducing my lifespan. “Why do people smoke?” is a question that will continue to plague me however “Why they started?” has quite a few but the main ones would be either curiosity or depression.
OTHERS HURT AS MUCH:-
Details hurt too you know. The point is doing anything too much and keeping with it because you can’t stop is the clear definition of an addiction. Give or take, certain things you thought was too simple to hurt actually does. People addicted to eating junk food, or just is a glutton, it’s the same thing since eating too much of anything is bad. It’s kind of weird when you talk about it but true that love is also kind of an addiction that hurts a tonne. It’s also one of the main that leads to depression, then you start drinking or smoking or both and then everyone else is sad. Now I am pretty sure I don’t need to tell you a sad story about unrequited love to explain to you that it’s filled with lots of obsession which sometimes takes new and psychotic heights. Whether that’s wanting the person to be happy or craving the person for oneself, it’s a form of addiction.
It’s completely okay to keep wishing for something, wanting to have it and letting yourself run after every opportunity to see it as your own as long as you know how to be the boss of your own desire and not let it start making you it’s steed.
So kids, let it make you grow but don’t let it kill you.
