My friends said that some of my post titles used to be very suggestive and mischievous, and sometimes they always get dissapointed when they realize they weren't actually what they thought them to be LOL
That's the beauty of writing, the ability to excite people's imaginations. I'm flattered, sweethearts :)
I can just imagine them clicking this like "what is she quitting this time?"
Yes, sugar buds (pun intended), I'm quitting something really interesting :)
First, may I start by asking "Who is an addict?"
I went to my fridge at about 2.30am to grab something to eat. Thanks to my distorted sleep cycle due to my pile up of school work and exams.
Guess what I was grabbing? A bar of kit kat. I love to chew on something sweet and very light when I have to eat something that late and most times, I do fruits but yea this time it was a chocolate bar.
I looked up and saw my neighbour at the high rise flat opposite mine smoking as usual.
He comes to his window every time to smoke, but no, I wasn't expecting to see him there at that time of the night.
"Bladdy addict" I heard myself say.
And then I looked down at my hand and I was like, "And what are you doing yourself at this time of the night?" hahaha
And then I replied myself immediately Like I was trying to convince myself of something "Hey, but this isn't going to fetch me lung cancer and other cardiovascular diseases".
"Ok but it could expose me to diabetes if I have the predisposition", I had to quickly remind myself.
So after that night, I decided that I will make a clear distinction between I and my neighbour. I didn't want to feel like I was an addict.
I thought I was just stressed out 'cause I had been working a lot. Staying up at night always made me feel hungry. It's not as though I woke up exclusively to go get myself a chocolate bar.
Even as much as I tried to convince myself that my case was different, my mind wouldn't stop reminding me that could have been the same case for my neighbour. He could have been working and decided to take a cigarette break lol
So to end the contest that was going on in my little brain, this is what I came up with.
An addict is a person that gets used to a certain thing irrespective of the negative consequences that they understand it can pose on them and most importantly, they would have to fight so hard to stay away from it.
I know I've got a sweet tooth but I decided to see if it's the same as being addicted.
I decided that I'd put my sweet tooth in check for 1 month and I'd see if I'd feel any kind of funny outcomes.
Guess what? I didn't even realize it's been almost 2 months and it feels totally normal, like it wasn't even a quest at all. I just go to the shop and don't buy anything sweet, and as long as I don't have it, I don't see myself wanting to eat it.
Yea now I can comfortably say that I'm not an addict
Please join me in my celebration :D
