The Slippery Slope fallacy in Action

Wikipedia Reads:

slippery slope argument (SSA), in logiccritical thinking, political rhetoric, and caselaw, is an argument in which a party asserts that a relatively small first step leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant (usually negative) effect.

What I actually personally mean:

What I personally mean by the slippery slope fallacy in Action is that if we act in such a manner that our dopamine drive mechanism is primarily fixated on things / acts / endeavors other than the primary endeavor(s) we have undertaken, then we may get derailed and “addicted” to the new actions where our dopamine is being released. This may cause us to get derailed from the original path.
