Addictive Behaviour

I was talking with my partner Tania this morning. It was a typical Sunday morning for us…woken by the cats at the crack of dawn wanting food and after several attempts at going back to sleep we found ourselves sipping tea and putting the world to rights.

We often have conversations like this, I guess its our way of checking in with one another. I suppose you could say it was a bit like our own AA/NA meeting except we are allowed to smoke and we both have a habit of talking over one another (when we get into it).

Tania had mentioned the other day about how our addictions may still manifest themselves in our day to day behaviour. On closer examination we found this to be true for both of us. I drink energy drinks like they are going out of fashion and Tania drinks Coke with the same gusto.

I guess the question we where asking was “Is this our Alcoholic behaviour manifesting itself ?” Neither of us feel that we are close to having a drink (and that is indeed a massive step considering some of the crap that we have had to put up with lately). We both obviously have issues around oral fixation (Smoking, Drinking etc).

I guess the only conclusion that we came to was… as long as it is not killing us, and as long as its not Alcohol/Drugs/Gambling related….then where’s the harm if we are aware of it?
