When you are addicted to something. Something bad. You cant just let yourself lose the battle, can you? A friend of mine was so into computer games. This may sound silly to you ; " Computer freak " or " Ah silly geek bugger " or any sort like that. His life was taken away by these games. He could sit for days in front of his personal computer, like he was praying to it.
But in life, there are more. Drug , Sex, Cigarette addiction. A lot of em.
While you're in deep trouble, addicted to any unhealthy thing, spare some time and think about the people that love you. Or just people that might get affected.
