Drugs, Smoking, Drinking and past memories; they’re all the same, they can kill you from the inside.
Past memories burned into your mind can remind you of your least proudest moments by letting you play them over and over again, wrecking yourself through thoughts of “Oh I should have said this” or “I should have done that”.
Reliving those past memories day in and day out is a trap, yet before you know it you’ve now become addicted. Once you’re addicted it’s hard to stop as you can go through a withdrawal very easily without your daily fix; this withdrawal is a feeling called Regret.
Like with drinking, drugs etc. You soak in the “wonderful” feeling it can bring but at the same time you also absorb the poisons that slowly kill you.
The answer to ridding addiction is simple; either stop it before it begins or pull through the withdrawal.
Ironically enough though, it’s the simplest things that can become the most complicated.
