Life & A Cigarette!

Lately I’ve been trying to understand the phenomenon which is called “addiction”. I’ve been trying to analyze the simple yet many factors that lead to any of the many addictions one may develop.

I am sure each one of you practices his own rituals that are related to one addiction or another.
Let’s take me, for example, I am addicted to many things (and I have written about some in a previous post). One of those was my addiction to chaos, which I recently kind of started to quit!

On the other hand, one my friends is addicted to sports, another to love songs, another to Hubble Bubble!

Now, what all of those friends and many others have in common is one thing: the need to have the thing we are addicted to. This need drives us to make mistakes, take drastic measures, feel weak, get nervous, feel anxious and sometimes even lose control!

So, what about those addictions? What can truly drive us to give up a certain addiction? Smoking, for example?

Well, a strong will would be a start then a variable, which I would like to refer to as a stimulus, will finish the job. If the will is there, no matter how deep it may be, the stimulus alone will lead us to give up those addictions. The stimulus could vary depending on the element of the addiction yet it could be sudden bad news, a certain friend, a new love, an unexpected health problem, etc…

Now you tell me, what are your addictions? And are you looking for the right stimuli to let go of them?

    mmm what am i addicted to !? actually its an interesting question and a good thing to think about it and have a small stop to see what are we addicted to .i think i am addictted some good and other bad intentions that is effecting my life from the good things , helpping others ,thinking out loud ,moving forward and sometimes over the limits 🙂 bad addictions : liquere, parties ,stay awake for late time ,cigarettes maybe ? ,to stay alone in my own world sometimes ."between good &bad "i do always look for honest love and loyality and a love story seems never to be completed ,seeking perfectness in relations that cant ever be satisfied ,being sociable and break the ice most the times with others . thats it and maybe there is more but i think this is enough hope beebee and my friends would give us your opinions in such addictions and beebee sorry for the long comment ;P
