If you find yourself saying “I shouldn’t be doing this, I shouldn’t be doing this, I shouldn’t be doing this” when you really want to do something, that’s addiction.
The voice inside your head is yelling, but you do it. Then you rationalize.
You say to yourself, “Well, I’ve already done this, no turning back now.”
So you do it, and you regret it. It feels terrible. But It’s human.
We’re all fighting this struggle.
Yours might be shopping or chocolate or a drink – soda or otherwise.
I just ate a bunch of chocolate and ice cream at 12:30 AM two nights ago.
It sucks. Recognize that it’s normal and get back on the horse.
You got this. Old habits die hard, friend.
