What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word addiction? Most think of substance abuse (drugs, alcohol) But there are more addicts in society than we know. You and I could very well be an addict!!
Some of us have addictive personalities/behaviors and don't even know it.
Do you find yourself needing to talk with that special someone everyday, and if not you don't sleep well? Do you need that cup of coffee to get your day on the right track? Do you have to wear make-up just to go to the store?
One similarity that these behaviors have that is like substance abuse is withdrawal!! Your day not going well because you didn't have your coffee is an addictive behavior. Not sleeping because you haven't heard from the special someone today sounds like withdrawal...lol Doesn't it? Think about it. When a substance abuser doesn't get his fix sometimes he is left feeling sick and sometime volatile..that's called withdrawal. Do they differ? Are you addicted to anything or would like to share your thoughts.

Addiction has followed me through life, to people, to things, to drugs and alcohol, clean and 50 and a beautiful wife and family, I am touched to see your blog. I hope you willl follow me, and allow me to follow you.

I love Chicago too. I am Canadian, but I have spent a great amount of time in Chicago, and it is my favorite US City. The music, the style, the feel.

I wish you well... I will be reading your posts for a while, I hope you don't mind?
