Where do we make the distinction between passion, obsession and addiction? I was thinking about this on my walk after passing a group of men sitting outside a brewery. The men was all intently studying a sample of craft beer and discussing it features.
This got me thinking about alcohol and my own experiences with it. I no longer drink except for on special occasions maybe once a year but for a long time it was an overwhelming vice in my life that shaded some of the best parts of my life but also drowned some of the absolute worst. While I was never a fan of beer, I have friends that are fascinated with craft beer and other friends who claim to be wine connoisseurs.
For me it is hard to grasp this hobby, as my use for the drink was almost always abusive of it and only a way to escape. But looking further into there is a true craftsmanship when it comes to these liquids. Hobbyists know the scientific aspects behind each pour and why it tastes as it does.
All of this made me think of the differentiation of what makes this a hobby or a passion, an obsession, or an addiction. As in most things, I apply this question to many things. My resolution is that it all comes down to balance.
A passion is the healthy balance of an interest against all of the other aspects and interests in your life. It usually takes a higher value than most things but there is a logical organization of it within the other values.
An obsession is what takes over that balance. It takes first place and is often chosen over logic and reason. It lands somewhat on the unhealthy side due to its ability to overtake other important aspects of your existence.
An addiction is when your interest takes over all logical reasoning. It engulfs every part of your life and even your identity. It alienates you and makes you completely succumb to its will no matter the consequences.
I have had all of traveled through all of these levels with many different interests and even people in my life but with growth and introspection It has become a lot easier to decipher from one to the other.
What are your thoughts and experience with all of these? I’d love to hear them.
