There are no good or bad addictions

An addiction is defined as something that is external, very difficult to get rid off; nevertheless.

One can get rid-off an addiction. This feeling of taking oneself as one takes himself to be is the most fundamental addiction — the “I’’ tendency.

There are no good or bad addictions.

An addiction is just what it is — “An unnecessary relationship.”
