"You can get off alcohol, drugs, women, food, and cars, but once you're hooked on orchids, you're finished."
Orchid Fever, Eric Hansen

Some obsessives even create foundations to care for their prized orchids after they die. Orchid addiction has gotten so bad that there’s even a word for it; orchidelerium (google it, it’s interesting).
But as the pendulum swings, for every addiction there’s a path to recovery, and this one begins with a cap.
