I don't think it's so much a decision or addiction as just not thinking about it.
Time to eat, here's some food, seems a normal meal, back to work.
The decision is to NOT eat and TO move around more. Sit at a computer, go eat some shit, sit back down at the computer is just too easy a routine.
IMO, there is a distinct qualitative difference between deciding to take a drink or smoke a cig than 'deciding' on too big a lunch.
All Redd [Foxx] did all day was coke, grass and ****. . .
So our first network taping, name in big letters right on the set, Redd doesn't arrive at curtain call.
I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
