I have what one could possibly describe as an anti-addictive personality. I have a hard time staying focussed on any one thing for an extended period of time so to me, it seems odd to be one who is addicted to, well, anything that is detrimental to ones health or wellbeing. Seriously, I have a hard time with it.
This brought about a mildly heated discussion with my wife today that started when I noted that I couldn’t get why people who were smart enough to know that smoking wasn’t exactly even mildly good for them wouldn’t just quit. She noted that for someone like me, it is easy to just turn an urge off. I don’t eat a lot of fatty greasy foods mainly because I don’t like them. I exercise, drink in moderation, don’t do drugs of any sort. Frankly I don’t see the draw.
However perhaps I am taking it the wrong way. Perhaps, I need a different viewpoint. But can’t find one that makes sense.
To me, persons who are addicted to anything are weak. Easily manipulated. Malleable.
Feel free to jump in on this in the comments as I don’t really know where I am going with it.
