A key understanding of cravings and addiction is that there seems to be a big correlation that exists between longing and finding a mystical state and the euphoric feeling you discover when you hammer out a deal with your “Drug” of choice.
Drugs Of Choice can and do come in a wide variety.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SHADE OF GRAY?

In my experience the above actions, when performed in a certain way, create a sense of dissolving difficult emotions, melt boundaries, execute a feeling of wholeness, and temporarily transcend mundane problems.
The intoxication of the above list (or anything else you would like to add to it) lacks many important characteristics of a mystical state, such as bliss, divinity, and the richness of deep, long-lasting insight, yet the experiential spill over can be a sufficient gateway to seduce you and I into a state that leads to abuse and the loss of our personal power.
Losing power doesn’t happen in a single stroke. It is a process, and for most of us, it’s a gradual one.
