How to use "Obsess" in context?

Obsess is defined as an intense interest in something that is beyond what is normal or acceptable. It can be a problem if one's obsession becomes so complete that it takes up all of one's time and energy and begins to interfere with daily life. Too much obsession can also lead to irrational thoughts and behavior. In short, obsessing can be a harmful behavior if not handled correctly.

Obsession can start off innocently enough. Perhaps someone becomes fascinated with a certain subject, or a new hobby is born. But as time goes on, the fixation can begin to take on a life of its own.
