addiction

Quote from Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy):

In the hospital, we see addiction every day. It’s shocking how many kinds of addiction exist. It would be too easy if it were just drugs and booze and cigarettes. I think the hardest part of kicking a habit is wanting to kick it. I mean, we get addicted for a reason, right? Often, too often, things that start out as just a normal part of your life at some point cross the line to obsessive, compulsive, out of control. It’s the high we’re chasing, the high that makes everything else fade away.  Still, they say you don’t kick the habit until you hit rock bottom, but how do you know when you’re there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes letting it go hurts even worse.

Be safe my friend.  You are loved.

    So… um. I’m still trying to figure out if you’re addicted to the friend and can’t let go or the friend is addicted to something. Either way, it’s absolutely none of my business. Forget I was here. 😀

    I hope you’re ok.
