"we see addiction every day. it’s shocking, how many kinds of addiction exist. it would be too easy if it was just drugs and booze and cigarettes. i think the hardest part of kicking a habit is wanting to kick it. i mean, we get addicted for a reason, right? often, too often, things that start out as just a normal part of your life, at some point cross the line to obsessive. compulsive. out of control. it’s the high we’re chasing. the high that makes everything else… fade away.
the thing about addiction is, it never ends well. because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high… stops feeling good, and starts to hurt. still, they say you don’t kick the habit until you hit rock bottom. but how do you know when you’re there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes, letting it go hurts even worse." grey's anatomy
