Addiction is not solely related to drugs alone. There are also "harmless" addictions like spending all our time on our hobbies. My sister is addicted to bird watching. And I am addicted to blogging. Too much of the same thing can pose problems to oneself and also to others. So we must have a certain degree of self-discipline. I still keep to my exercise, chi kong and yoga.
The ugly side of addiction is the negative and harmful ones. According to the Star, Chuang Toh Huat died at 7.30am on Tuesday. His family believed he ran up a debt of RM90,000 after failed bets during the Euro 2008 championship.
If you do not want to get burnt, please do not go near the fire!
