Addictive transgressions


"Five behaviours draw a person perpetually, and separating from them is difficult. Therefore, one must be careful of them, lest he become attached to them. All of them involve very bad traits. They are:

Speaking harmfully of others;
Thinking negatively of others [and as some explain, plotting to harm them];
Joining the wicked, such that one learns from his deeds and they are engraved upon his heart…"

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 4:5)
