The ability to abstain

It’s been said that addiction is when we’ve lost our ability to abstain.

To abstain from alcohol, cigarettes, coffee, drugs, food, and sex – of course.

But also from the internet, our phone, sports on TV, Netflix and video games.

And, at work, from being negative, complaining, gossiping, and losing our temper. If we do any of these things at work, we are setting the wrong example. If we tolerate any of these things in others, we are not leading.
