It makes sense that in order to be prepared for anything, you shouldn't allow yourself to be suffering from addictions at the point of an emergency as most addictions won't be feasible in a survival situation. So I was wondering if anyone here has any addictions right now? Smoking, drinking, gambling, gaming, the internet, sex, drugs, money, painkillers... I never judge someone for their addictions, we've all had them and it's not like you wake up one day and think "I'm going to get addicted to something today, I think that's a great idea!" So there's no judgment here, only a gentle reminder that though your addictions may be manageable now, perhaps you might consider dealing with them sooner rather than later, as it would be awful to be suffering withdrawal symptoms for an addiction whilst trying to survive a doomsday scenario.
