This past Sunday, I experienced what I think would be considered a full on binge fest. The bingiest of binges. A binge binge binge-a-roo. Mr. Binge Bingerson… Yes, I most certainly finished the Breaking Bad marathon that I had dvr’d a couple weeks ago on AMC. And like any true junkie I finished at roughly 3:30 in the morning with nothing left to show for. It went something like this…
8 pm – “I’ll watch an episode or 2 until it’s time for bed”
10 pm- “Well you know… I’m not really that tired I could stay up for one more…”
12:30 am – “It’s not like you’ve never been up this late before…”
2 am- “Well at this point you might as well finish the damn series”
3:30 am- “It’s over?! What am I going to do now?!”
I hid my addiction from my husband. He could sense I had been using and asked the next day, “What time did you go to bed last night?” I shrugged and replied, “I don’t know, I dozed off on the couch” But after a couple of days there was no denying it. He saw the edge in my eyes. The withdrawals my body was going through. At my lowest point I finally caved. I confessed my sins. He asked, “Are you still using?” I cowered and answered, “No, I’ve had enough. But I can’t seem to get Walt and Jesse out of my head”
It’s been 4 days since I last used. Those of you who have been through this, what were your highs and lows? I still don’t want to give it up. For those of you who haven’t used Breaking Bad. Do whatever it takes to get your hands on it.
