Write in any form you want to.
I was going to choose poetry but I decided to just free write.
They don’t get it, they never have. The struggle isn’t easy. “Just stop, just control yourself.” It’s easy to say right. Harder to do, to stop something you are so accustomed to. Yet there are people eating excessively, smoking, drinking, partying, lying, playing game consoles, watching tv non stop. Why? Because we all have something that is too hard to control. Maybe mine is frowned upon, but then again maybe so is yours. Because we think an addict is the person who can’t stop the use of substances. But don’t you know that an addict is a “person who is addicted to an activity, habit, or substance.” While being addicted is simply being “devoted or given up to a practice or habit or to something psychologically or physically habit-forming.” So can they really tell me to stop when they have their addictions? If they take a minute to analyze themselves, they’ll know what I mean. I’ll work on my addiction, but they can’t forget to work on theirs. Because the flaws they see in me, are the ones that to others they show. But it’s easier to just strike a blow.
