Very interesting that you brought this up, for I have been thinking about something similar just today. I am now, after a long while, reading once again Dostoevsky's Adolescent, and it is particularly about this thing (among some other topics, like idolizing fatherlessness, which also has connections to this, and to Azazelian symbolism).
I had Dostoevsky in mind when writing the above, although I have only read The Brothers Karamazov from him. Dmitri is a good example of a character who has "indulged in to a certain kind of behavior for too long". I should look in to Adolescent in addition to the ones I've lately been meaning to: Idiot as well as Notes from Underground.

Luke 6:32 wrote:For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
That's the one!
