A funny thing about emotions is that they can become addictive.
Literally, all our emotions, from euphoria to depression, depend on the proteins segregated by our hypothalamus, a region in the lower brain area. Such proteins enter our blood stream and communicate the intended effect to EACH AND EVERY ONE of the cells we are made of.
But the most astonishing aspect of the whole process is that the cell's receptors in charge of processing those proteins are the ones in charge of processing other substances like, for example, heroine.
So affirming that a person can be addicted to a certain emotion (i.e., to the substance associated with that emotion) is certainly more than a metaphor. And, as our biological mechanism involved is the same that deals with drugs, the laws of addiction are here applicable too: under sustained exposure to a substance, the cell becomes more receptive to it, and as it gets more and more into the habit, it will require growing amounts of the same substance simply to recover its balance.
Translated into the world of emotions, the same emotion will be more intense and will last for a longer period of time before the cell gets satisfied to the full.
