Personally, I struggled with question 5 regarding judgment the most which is why I subconsciously listed it last. For years I constantly would judge people harshly for being an addict and yet here I was addicted to sugar, technology and gaming. Needless to say these addictions were not as destructive as hard drugs or alcohol but they were damaging to me and made me no better than anyone needing a break from this sometimes harsh reality.
