Addiction :: 'mouse

Josh knew his addiction was getting out of control when he started buying large bottles at Costco, smuggling them home, hiding them and using them to refill the carafe his wife kept on the counter, but he rationalized that he hadn’t really sunk to rock bottom and didn’t really need professional help since he was still buying name-brand jelly-bellies instead of generics.

(Edited to follow the one scrine rule) I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think that metaphorically speaking, love is a really big redwood splinter and pain is it jammed really deep up underneath your fingernail and broken off: You think “this should stop hurting soon, I’ll be okay,” but then it doesn’t and it just hurts worse and pretty soon you’re considering driving to downtown Oakland at 3am to look for heroin figuring that addiction and eventual withdrawal couldn’t been any worse than this fucking love, er, splinter.
