Addiction disguised as lust/desire/curiosity

Isnâ€™t it amazing how much we ache/crave/desire the things we canâ€™t have? Itâ€™s like illegal substance. Itâ€™s illegal for obvious reasons, but you just canâ€™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 youâ€™re different from others. You know you have self control. You tell yourself you can stop whenever you want, that thereâ€™s no way youâ€™ll be hooked, or addicted that youâ€™ll want it all the time. Sure, thatâ€™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?
Itâ€™s just too good, isnâ€™t it? The feeling that it gives you inside. How your body tingles, how light it makes you feel, as if youâ€™re floating on a cloudâ€¦ But when that feeling disappears, youâ€™ll want it back. Especially when youâ€™re having one of those daysâ€¦ 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!Itâ€™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 wouldnâ€™t want to self implode, would you?
