    There are certain things I wish I was addicted too, I wish I was addicted to exercise and didnt think about something else I could be doing instead when I take exercise.

    I also wish I was addicted to reading in order that I could get some of my books read and shifted to the charity shop.

    I know a few INTJ's who are especially prone to addictions....They tend to decompress in cycles which is most likely a manifestation of inferior Se (lack control).

    An addiction is a trance within a trance. We enter our first trance, say the sexual trance, and at the same time, we enter the trance of drugs. So now we are in two trances at the same time.

    And when we try to wake up by ending our first trance, we are precipitated into our second trance. And so we oscillate between the two trances, with no way out, like a rat in a trap.

    A nice metaphor, I must ssy and I think it is accurate.

    I drank originally to feel good, this was a trance because I told myself it was the only way to escape the pain of the moment. Rejecting the idea of a simple life change instead. I was enchanted with the though of the influence. Then actually being under the influence. Then sobering up, only to repeat it all over again.
