It was once thought that those who were susceptible to addictions became addicts the moment they tried their desired substance. While it is true hat some people seem to fall in love quickly, for most people idolatry is a slowly developing courtship. Idolatry is a gradual journey that begins even before the first shot of booze, Internet hit, toke of a marijuana cigarette, or bulimic binge.
Welch, p. 65.
