What's the exact meaning of to have a monkey on one's back and in which context it is suitable to use?
1) to be a pain in the neck
2) to be a burden to someone/to have a burden
It's really weird because yestarday I was talking to an American friend of mine and he said to me, kidding: Oh Gosh, you're a monkey on my back....
I thought he meant something like: you're a pain in the neck...or something similar...
P.S. I'm not addicted to any sort of drugs and I do not have any problems with alcohol either...
