Something I have been thinking about for a while, what’s is the difference? Everyone probably thinks addictions are bad, drugs alcohol and reality T.V. all bad and people need help with. But what do people feel about obsessions? Being obsessed with a person is probably not good. How about a book, tv show, computer game or pop singer. You might argue they are both the same it’s all just semantics.
I’m always accused of being obsessed with a popular story. I read the books every year, buy the merchandise, and mention it in every other blog post. It might bore my family and blog readers to death but does it hurt anyone? I suppose if I spent the food money on getting just one more wand then it would.
Obsessions can be positive I can share it with other people give them joy if they like me are a fan. But then if I was a smack head I suppose I could share that with others as well.
Could the difference be I can walk away from my obsession without any medical effects (no really I could stop anytime I wanted). Whereas an addiction it a lot harder would cause me physical pain.
In conclusion I have no idea I’m no nearer an answer than I was when I started writing this. The only thing I do know is that I’m nearer to death than when I started…. Unless I get a time turner.
