19 Addiction Quotes That Will Get You Thinking

Addiction

When we hear of addiction, most times we think of drugs. Drug addiction is very common, from alcohol to hard drugs, but there are many types of addictions that someone could be going through.

It could be an addiction to social media, television, food, sex, gambling, etc. One could be addicted to a certain thing or activity. Addicts usually use these substances or activities for pleasure, to escape reality, or to feel in control.

Addiction is never an overnight thing. One does not wake up instantly addicted to something. It is a long process of repeated abuse which changes how their body reacts to it. Addiction tends to follow the same cycle. However, the duration of the progression of addiction varies depending on a person, amount of indulgence, and the substance or activity in question.

After taking or doing the thing the first time, the brain releases dopamine, which is the happy hormone. It makes them come back for more when the brain responds with pleasure. The brain stores this memory of pleasure making the person crave for more.

Addiction basically follows the cycle of initiation, experimentation, regular use, risky usage, dependence, then ultimately, addiction. As use progresses, quiting becomes hard. Whether you are struggling with an addiction or know someone who is, treat yourself or the person gently.

To get better, the process should not be rushed. Just like it takes time to become addicted, it also takes time to get off something. Some things you can do are; deciding that you want to quit, being accountable to someone on your progress, and learning your weak spots.

You should also try distracting yourself with other positive activities, keep a record of your progress, and stay away from people who encourage the addiction. Here are amazing addiction quotes to encourage you and keep you on track.

one day Manuel returned to the place, and she was gone - no argument, no note, just gone, all her clothes all her stuff, and Manuel sat by the window and looked out and didn't make his job the next day or the next day or the day after, he didn't phone in, he lost his job, got a ticket for parking, smoked four hundred and sixty cigarettes, got picked up for common drunk, bailed out, went to court and pleaded guilty. when the rent was up he moved from Beacon street, he left the cat and went to live with his brother and they'd get drunk every night and talk about how terrible life was. Manuel never again smoked long slim cigars because Shirley always said how handsome he looked when he did.

They simply couldn’t tell me that they didn’t have a cigarette. They had to give me their pitch, their religion: cigarettes were for cubes. They were going to Malibu, to some seeming loose and easy shack in Malibu and burn a bit of grass. They remind me, in a sense, of old ladies standing on a corner selling “The Watchtower.” The whole LSD, STP, marijuana, heroin, hashish, prescription cough medicine crowd suffers from the “Watchtower” itch: you gotta be with us, man, or you’re out, you’re dead. This pitch is a continual and seeming MUST with those who use the stuff. It’s no wonder they keep getting busted – they can’t use the stuff quietly for their pleasure; they have to make it KNOWN that they are members.

I think they’re all losers and they want to lose real bad. there’s no other way, it’s like they can’t get where they’re going or want to go and there’s no other way. this has got to be it. she shoots up in the neck.”
