Reflecting on those experiences after being clean for some years, I came to believe that the key to addiction is not the way the drug makes you feel when you take it, but the way the drug appears when you see it.
This partly explains why people quit drugs so many times and yet return again and again. The addictive object has a very particular quality for the addict. If habit dulls perception, the addictive object seems immune to habit. In my literary writing, I want to create an image that will also retain its intensity over time.
