ADDICTIONS: Who's in control?
Speaking from personal experience, it's really hard to get control over the addiction when every other day you are allowing it to control you. I really believe that every single person has atleast one thing they are addicted to, some of those people can measure it and keep it safe, others have more trouble.
It's a constant struggle that takes more than one day to cure. Most importantly, don't do it alone. Ask for help. Realise from day one that it will most likely never be completely in check, but something you have to re-check regularly.
Keep your chin up, and please take care.
