I get that too. But like I said in my post after this one, addiction has so many more components than what we see and is a lot more complex. All addictions are different and effect everyone in different ways. While it may not be part of your addiction, it could very well be part of someone else's
I get that too. He just came off condescending because what he said didn't really apply to me personally (can't speak for who I was originally having the convo with, though she seemed to disagree as well) and he was arguing back with both of us when we disagreed with him. I wasn't speaking on behalf of anyone else's issues, just my own. I know there are lots of people who are actually addicted to food and the taste of it, which mine has little to do with the actual taste and needing the junk food - mine is more just the comfort provided by the act of eating whatever - healthy or unhealthy. To me, we were discussing something totally different than what he was talking about, and when I told him how that didn't really apply to my
addiction, he still argued back, and I don't really care for that, since like you said, everyone's addiction is different and he doesn't really know mine well enough to do that. It's not like we don't know that the food is bad because of stuff like that, you know? So I just got a bit defensive. It's like telling an alcoholic about the dangers of alcohol when everybody already knows them already. Just kind of unnecessary.
