    I Think I'm Addicted To Food

    I've always had a pretty odd relationship with food. Since childhood, I've loved it. More than I should've, and I've carried it on into adulthood. Literally, I don't know when to stop eating. Even if what I'm eating isn't tasty, I will eat it anyway. The act of eating just...

    I am strangely, to the point of dangerously,

    obsessed with triggering emotions in others. The more rage the better. I am addicted to seeing that shift in someone's eyes. And I need to stop wanting that so badly before one day someone doesn't snap out of it.

    I Stopped Opiate Addiction In 8 Hours With No Withdrawal.

    The first 12 days are the hardest. Vomiting, diarrhea, whole-body itch and pain, running nose, tearing, hot and cold flushes, feeling as if one million ants were eating through the skin. If there is a way to bypass these 12 days, then quitting opiates would be easier. Not that...
