    It's like our minds are turning against our

    bodies. It wants to feel this way. It lies & says its good for my body. Cuz it feels good. But it's not good for me. When I want it, my mind lies. When I get what I want, my body loves it & my mind freaks out. Once it's gone, my mind wants more & my body tries to heal itself
