This is a topic I have been meaning to write about since last year, but I kept putting it off.
Addiction is something we are all aware of. It’s when you’re constantly ingesting a substance or engaging in an activity that you find pleasurable. For example: drug, alcohol, gambling, shopping, gaming, and etc.
While the substance or activity itself may bring us pleasure, it is very harmful to us in the long run.
1. You lose self control. You’re no longer able to “live” without it because you’re constantly thinking or craving for it.
2. Time and money is scarce. We only have 24 hours a day. If you spend 5+ (or however long you spend) hours feeding your addiction, you will have less time to do other things, or take care of other responsibilities.
