You Can Never Get Enough of a Substitute
If our natural, healthy need is for one thing, and we try to substitute something else, that something else will never fully satisfy us. For example, if we need love and we try to substitute love with sex, we could have sex everyday but that alone would never meet our need to feel loved.
I am not sure where I first heard the expression "you can never get enough of a substitute", so I did the search shown below. Based on the results not many people are saying this, but personally, it makes sense to me and I believe it.
