A Course In Weight Loss

courseinweightlossWhen subconscious forces lead a person into chronic self-destructive behavior over which their conscious mind has little or no control, this is called an addiction. Addiction is a system of self-generated behavior over which a merely self-generated psychological response system holds no sway. Addiction is when you can’t stop. When some craziness takes over and you do whatever it is you do that blows it every time, ruins everything, snatches happiness from your hands, and leaves you desperate at what your life has become. It’s life when lived at the behest of a wicked witch who seems to have taken over your brain and now uses it as her control room, directing you to do the most self-destructive things and then cackling with amusement as you lie writhing on the ground in misery right afterward.

It’s tempting to thinking that you’re the only one going through this, though intellectually you pretty much know that you’re not. Still, addiction is a private hell and a secret hell and a shame-filled hell, because you’re not supposed to be this way. But if you’re not supposed to be that way, and I’m not supposed to be that way, and no one else is supposed to be that way, then are so many people that way?
