I think that most, if not all, addictions are unhealthy, especially addictions to substances like alcohol and drugs. Other addictions can be very destructive as well, like overspending, gambling… My question for you – I’d really like your input – is this; do you think ALL addictions are unhealthy? For instance, I’m addicted to this website. I enjoy this addiction. I learn a lot here. I can support others and be supported on the raw lifestyle. I’m also addicted to email. I love to forward interesting things to my friends, and they usually send me good stuff, too. Are these addictions unhealthy in some way? In a way, I can see how they might be unhealthy because they make me feel “driven.” In a holistic, spiritual sense, maybe these addictions are taking me out of my center even though I enjoy them very much.
What do you think?
