Often we have those kinds of people who like the things just the way they are. When happiness can be found by smelling something funny or popping in some pills why chose the hard way to happiness. And happiness is just because the people haven’t endured the misery yet of the addiction.


  1. “It’s hard. Commitment is way too hard.”

Who are we kidding if we say that it is so damn easy to commit and we are just not talking about committing to your partners or your health officer or to your doctor or your gym trainer. Here the real talk is about remaining committed to oneself

The things that have been giving peace and have been a habit since eternity are hard to lose especially when these things are additive in nature.
