Opiate Life - The 12 Stages Of Addiction (Part 3)

..Waiting For The Man..

3. The Turning Point

The day the phone keeps ringing.

The day you're told "we're all out, we won't have any until tomorrow"

The day you can't take your girlfriend for a drink because you spent your money on gear.

The day you blow your friends off because you're waiting to pick up.

The day you realise you're hooked.

This is the point at which you start making adjustments to your life to accommodate your habit. The changes are small at first, slowly you adjust your life more and more until finally every day your entire focus and energy is spent on getting your next fix. Essentially, you've paddled into shit creek without noticing the smell, you're caught in the rapids and it's gonna be damn hard getting out.
