Addictions, something we will all struggle with one day and I don’t mean drugs, alcohol or gambling. A lot of people don’t realize you can be addicted to absolutely anything, me for example, Costa Coffee hot chocolates, American Horror Story and oh don’t get me started on objects with pugs on them (as you can tell by the picture above).
It’s actually kind of scary how addicted you can get to anything, someone’s love, affection and comfort. You can be addicted to a person, scent, place, anything. Can this idea only scare me? It only really came to my attention the other night how powerful an addiction is, it tears families apart, loved ones and its even caused wars.
If you literally feel like you can’t live without something, then you’ve gone too far. So many people drink because they can’t be happy without it, the same with drugs. Addiction is something I feel quite strongly about, I’ve seen first hand what it does to a person so now I have a number of people who read my words why should I not write about it and create awareness?
If you know someone with a dangerous addiction, tell them you know, influence them to get help or if you have to make see that they do. But don’t forget, you can’t force someone to do anything, so just be there for them. Sometimes that is all a person needs, to be needed.
What are your opinions on addictions? How do you feel about it? I’d love to know!
