By request I've translated the notes and todo-s for akide in English 
(they are messy of course).

I could say much more simpler way but it wouldn't be so correct (also it 
is still true). The coding has been addiction for me and addictions are bad.

Trading one addiction for another is rarely a good idea. The cold hard fact of
the matter is that the only way to trully break an addiction of any kind is
through personal effort mixed with blood, sweat, and tears.  Without a will to
win, there is no winning.  That's why addictions are so horrid for us humans:
they tend to pick on the weakest part of our natures. There /is/ a way out,
though.

Besides, I don't think coding addiction can ever be trully cured. Does anybody
here know of a successful case?  ;)

You speak wisdom! :)
That's also the only true way to achieve the great goals. (sorry for my 
poor english, I wish I could find better words!)

What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another.  And 
priorities change.
