Overcoming addictions? Excitement!

Berserk Manga
Demon Dogs. Chapter 75, Page 21
(Check it in MangaShare)

"This is my motto: Enjoyment and Excitement!!"

Although the context in which I presented this phrase is not the most appealing, (...) this was the first time I saw a character who expresses his motto in this way.

The reason why I brought this phrase it is because Enjoyment and Excitement are the best ways to overcome any addiction you have. Think about it: those sensations are what you feel when you are doing your addictions. This is what all addictions have in common.

So, the panacea is to find a useful vice. A vice big enough to give you too much enjoyment and excitement, equal or more than the other vice you want to leave.
