Fantasy / Obsession / Intoxication.

My fantasy is to one day be able to understand quite how Pravin’s mind comes up with such topics. He is the LBC blogger who has come up with this topic for today’s posts. After some reflection, I could understand the combining of the latter two subjects but am stumped to find how logically the first one fits in with the other two. I hope that Pravin will write on this topic so that I can understand his take and the logic behind the choice.

Stretching a point we could say that these are two sides of the same coin but to confuse us, could also be mutually exclusive. The point however is that Obsessives often confuse their obsession as addiction and addicts do the reverse without really understanding the difference.

I know the difference at an abstract level but for the world of it, cannot put it in writing. I therefore went to my Guru, Google and found this very enlightening article by a psychologist.

In my younger days, I had many obsessions and addictions but, I am now clear in my mind that I am an obsessive only when it comes to cleanliness and order in my surroundings and am an addict when it comes to my morning tryst with my newspapers and crossword puzzles.

Pravin has suggested this week’s topic. I hope that he is back blgging so that I can access his take on the subject. You can see what the other writers of the LBC have to say in their respective blogs.  Maria, Pravin, Ashok and Shackman<
