Hi, Sonali: |
Gurrrl!! I know what you are talking about. You are preaching to the choir when it comes to my addiction to food. I decided, as adults, we are all addicted to something. But, the answer to it is KNOWING you have the addiction and trying to do something about it. You ARE!!!
I don't know about your friend, but all of us have our demons and it is incumbent upon that person (and only that person) to see if he or she can overcome the strong gravitational pull of the addiction. Hoarding, illicit drug use, alcohol, gambling, exercise, smoking are all addictions and we, as intelligent people, always have a rationale for NOT stopping. I've done that all of my life.
Now that I am so close to where I want to be, I am terrified of not getting there. But, I will soldier on and keep relying on Cambridge to get me there. I just keep going. The only person who can stop me is ME!!
I have failed so many times, it can't be calculated. But, I am STILL trying and still going. JUST KEEP GOING, SONALI!!
