Lust, Greed, and Addiction

I’ve been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.  ~  Mark Twain

Lust, Greed, and Addiction.  These are deadly sins ~ deadly because lust, greed, and addiction can all drag you down to a rock-bottom more horrible than your worst nightmare, humiliate you, make you ill, and then kill you.  Lust can give you all kinds of STD, take you to dangerous places, where you could meet some very nasty people.  Greed can make you take risky decisions with money, accept all kinds of bad financial advice, and ultimately take every penny and asset you have, including your home.  And addiction is more terribly dreadful than you could possibly imagine.  If you are a woman, and addicted to anything, you will most likely do some sordid things just to feed your addiction.

It can all begin innocently enough, a date with a co-worker, regularly sitting at the bar in your favourite pub, losing a couple of hundred dollars in Las Vegas.  But it may only be a matter of time before you’re the bum on the streets, or the easy slut sitting at the bar in your favourite pub, who’s just looking for a younger guy to fuck her like an animal.

The sad thing is, that once you’re on the train to destruction, there’s usually no getting off until the last stop.  Almost everyone I’ve ever known who has taken that ride is now dead, often horribly so, well before their time should have been up.  The list of illnesses and causes of death that lust, greed, and addiction will give you is long and horrific; insanity, renal failure, wet brain, suicide, pneumonia, cirrhosis, cardiovascular failure, cancers, accidents, gastrointestinal disorders, blood disorders, pancreatitis, malnutrition, AIDS, random violence, domestic violence, brutal rape, beriberi…..

What can you do if you have lots of casual sex, constantly think about ways of making money, gamble, drink too much and / or take drugs?  Well, you can’t stop on your own.  So get help before you are utterly rejected by everyone who cares for you.  Try Alcoholic Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous…..  It’s pointless going to your doctor, the average doctor is as much use helping with these problems as is a cement life jacket.

Some say that they drink, take drugs, gamble, make rash decisions, and have casual sex because of too much stress, worry, and fear.  And that they could clean up their act anytime they like.  All I know is that almost everyone is stressed, worried, and a little afraid, but they don’t all die an early, disgusting death.
