Tolerance or Addiction?

VISUALIZE YOUR ADDICTIONS – It all starts harmlessly. A simple indulgence then turns into a full-on addiction. We start our day with a hot cup of coffee in the morning then before we know it, our day isn’t ready to begin without it.

When we wake up at 6AM, we turn off the alarm on our phone then we pick it up because there’s a reply to your post on a social media app that you posted last night. Soon enough, we’re viewing a cute dog video at 7:15AM. It becomes a cycle each morning.

When we get to work or class, we feel a buzz in our pocket and we’re tempted to see what it is. Nothing really, just your friend giving you a virtual heart reply to your throwback photo for 3 years ago that you shared.

Let’s not get started with how we all learned how to smoke and drink alcohol.

The small harmless habits are all running our lives now. So how do we visualize our addictions?

These are what we call our micro compulsions that drives us away from our freedom and supremacy of our own lives. These are the small things that make our “clarity” a cloudy one. We always think and visualize that our addictions are in control or are in check. But are you really in control of how much time you spend watching TV for example? How much is too much soda for a day?

I have a friend who was once a cocaine dependent for more than a decade. He told me that he has completely lost his freedom to abstain from his addiction. One day, he just woke up and told himself that he’s had enough of what he has seen in front of the mirror. “I want my freedom back. I want my life back!”

Can you visualize your addictions?

So what is that addiction to you that visualize? Let’s list some common ones.

Junk food? Drugs? Alcohol? Complaining? Fault finding? Nail biting? Envy? Gossip? Hatred? Porn? Social Media? Gambling? Smoking? Get your freedom to abstain back. Inside it is your clarity and self-control.

In this world, there’s a lot that we are addicted to. These are which we all consider to be “good” or “tolerable”.

Our courage begins to disappear and we then test our own courage. We lose our souls that we can’t stand on ourselves, due to our dependency to our addictions. Is this what most people call a simple indulgence?

So, can you now visualize the addictions in your head?

Envisioning a drug free life is not merely picturing or imagining what it would look like to live without the use of drugs and alcohol once in a blue moon. Visualizing a drug free life is a consistent and persistent practice which can lead to the ability to achieve a life without the use of drugs and alcohol.

I agree with your point on good and bad habits. There are some addictions that can very well carry you to have a good life and there are some that would really drag you down. Right now, the most addictive thing that people think would be the influence of social media.

Let’s face it, more than 50% of the population of the Philippines are addicted to social media, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and now Lyka. It does make a person more addicted to these as people would say that this is the only way they could get an update from their friend or relative, or sometimes just for entertainment purposes only. It really is bothersome to know that this is already the effect for people.

Don’t get me wrong, this is just my perspective. I think other people might disagree towards my opinion on this since they would say that this is a good addiction, unlike for drugs, alcohol, and gambling. This really would depend on the perspective on the person on how they see the situation.
