Life is a good news bad news story. Do you know the good news?

Do you know the bad news?

You can get used to anything.

We see evidence of this mixed blessing of human adaptability in addiction. In the beginning, like the first few days, you see people desperate for drugs, doing unthinkable things for money to get dope. Not me, you told yourself. I remember noticing the missing teeth of a prostitute who was sharing her door with us. I felt bad taking it when I considered what she did to get it. I took it anyway. I had already crossed the line between the unimaginable and what you can barely bring yourself to do. Before too long what was inconceivable becomes routine, hum drum “Let me get this money real quick and I will be right there,” I have told people. I’d think of the prostitute with the missing teeth and console myself that I am different because I still have my teeth. Mostly. You can get used to anything.

Bad news and good news can be in the eye of the beholder. In this case I think it is more of a case of yin and yang.
