As Victor’s guilt grew with each action his monster did, his sustainability and calmness constantly grew worse. His “agitation and anguish were extreme during the whole trial”(Shelley 69) of Justine’s because his guilt from his Superego increased with the death of his brother William.
/ The worst is yet to come” (Tesfaye 3,4). The Weeknd utilizes his heartfelt lyrics to convey how his addiction to love tends to take him over, causing him to disconnect from reality.

They escape through rehabilitation, recovery programs, support from friends, and their own inner strength. As Kiedis says in the song “Californication”, “Destruction leads to a very rough road, but it also breeds creation.” At the end of the rough road of addiction, artists find new creative mediums replacing drugs. Fortunately, for those who escape, they rise from the ashes.
It seems like once something goes wrong, or doesn’t go his way he just gives up. He drinks a lot during this story to wash away his troubles and he doesn’t care that his wife claims that it is harmful to his health. All he can say in return is that he is going to die anyways.

His conscience will never keep him from sinning—if anything, it will fuel his addiction to pleasure and trap Dorian in a cycle of sinning simply to savor the experience of remorse.
