In your opinion, at what point does a passion become an obsession?

Passion: an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.
Obsession: an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.

With them being so similar both in lay terms and definitive terms, what do you think is the point in which a passion turns into the ever more sinister obsession?

    Obsession is when a person can't live without and are unwilling to and will do anything to keep the object of there obsession.
