Addiction disguised as lust/desire/curiosity

Isn’t it amazing how much we ache/crave/desire the things we can’t have? It’s like illegal substance. It’s illegal for obvious reasons, but you just can’t help but wonder why there are people who abuse it. What high does it give them? You are curious to give it a try, even though you know the risks.

But then you think you’re different from others. You know you have self control. You tell yourself you can stop whenever you want, that there’s no way you’ll be hooked, or addicted that you’ll want it all the time. Sure, that’s what you think until you actually do it.

Then what happens? Are you in fact, in control of yourself? Can you really go on not doing it for the longest time? How long before you start craving it again? How long before you would crawl on your hands and knees wanting it because of how it makes you feel?

It’s just too good, isn’t it? The feeling that it gives you inside. How your body tingles, how light it makes you feel, as if you’re floating on a cloud… But when that feeling disappears, you’ll want it back. Especially when you’re having one of those days… that day that you wish you could run away from because the pain/anger/hatred is deafening that you would do anything to not feel like that for a little while.

Of course, this would apply to foods and people too!

It’s true what they say, that too much of a good thing can be bad for you. So take in moderate doses. After all, you wouldn’t want to self implode, would you?
