Just another question

Standard

Can you get addicted to a person?,
It may be a friend, a co-worker, a singer whose voice you like, a character on your favorite TV show, or for that matter a blogger friend as well. Do you think we can get addicted? and if we do, do you think it is bad?

  1. hmmn, as per me, addiction of any kind is bad.. For me, I try hardest to let go of any attachments / addictions… Its tough and I’m still working had on it 🙂

  2. I don’t know if one can be addicted, but one can definitely become obsessive. As with all things, I think it depends entirely on how one interacts and behaves regarding the person one admires. Mostly though, too much of anything is not a good thing. Balance in all.

    By the way, I’ve nominated you for a Nice Award 🙂

  3. Rambler: There are both genetic and gene-environment interaction based explanations for addiction. Some materials in themselves are addictive such as tobacco or cocaine. That said some people can give up tobacco just like that, no patches required.

    In case of being addicted to a person or a voice, you have to ask whether it is your genes (do you get easily ‘addicted’ to other things?), or gene-environment interaction (flippant, but ask yourself if you have too much time on your hands and therefore your predisposition is making you prone to certain behaviours that you see as addictive), or whether the “addictee” is in itself something that even others cannot resist.

    You will find the answer that suits your context the best 🙂

    brave girl you are :)..
    I guess even though I believe it to be bad, I guess this is more to be safe, I mean to be risk free, I guess I like it when we are addicted, passion is sometimes worth the risk.

    @Absolute.
    balance is good, but sometimes as I said earlier, we tend to be too much risk free

    @Shefali,
    actually some people are addictive, as in they instigate addiction.

    In most cases, I would have to say its me, who is more addicted..

  5. Hi Rambler, Vanilla sent me. Of course you become addicted to people! “a state of physiological or psychological dependence or devotion”. I get psychological withdrawals if I don’t chat to some people on the blogosphere or see particular friends each week! Then I’m also obsessive, needy, insecure yada yada . . .and passion is always worth the risk! (did I put romantic in that list?)

  6. darling have you read my blog??? yes you can and it is more dangerous i would say than drugs… i have done both,, and it is a lot easier to get over drugs……

  7. Hey Biano.
    welcome to virtual ramblings. thats exactly what I was talking about and yes romance too, but then not sure if its really good or bad, I sometimes feel its good but my logic says its bad.

    🙂 surprising, specially we never seem to agree on anything 🙂

    @paisley
    dangerous does not make it wrong, does it?

  8. yep, addiction of any kind is bad. bad because its gets difficult when u start missing it. as long as u can handle urself even without it, its fine. u need to have strong will power for that 🙂

  9. @shilps
    actually I tend to disagree
    may be its bad, but I dont agree its bad because its difficult 🙂
    oh you totally right wrt to will power, and I so much believed I had a strong will. [ the key words being “had” “believed” :D]
