An original acrylic portrait study by Bonnie Dixson.

We all have addictions and vices.
We often view them as necessities, things we need to function on a daily basis. We view some as extreme, such as gambling, alcohol, drugs. We view others as minor, such as how the majority of us need a tea or a coffee to function in the morning, or need to hit the gym at a particular time of the day.
What we never seem to realise is that be are born with addictive natures, we get hooked on things at a extremely young age. We do not accept this, that in fact, it is part of our DNA.
A young child with a dummy for example. A parent will decide when such child gives their dummy up, it may be that they hit a certain age and that the child needs to grow up and leave their dummy behind. When you have had a comfort for as long as you can possibly remember and someone suddenly decides we no longer need that comfort it can be devastating. We don't always remember such times, and often view them as in important, but hell if a child can give up an addiction then all adults have the power to do so as well!

Oh and yes the quote was in fact used during this particular tantrum! You have to love a child's logic.
