Thesis and introduction for the picture of dorian gray

Please I need help with my thesis and introduction, I have to construct an argument about the relationship between addiction and beauty (or ugliness) and I just don't know where to start, It's on the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Thank you so much.

Consider that Dorian was addicted to staying young and beautiful. The harder he worked to keep his beauty, the uglier he became. We see his true nature reflected in the portrait while Dorian the man stays beautiful on the outside. Often, obsessions and addictions can make a persons soul ugly. They might retain their beauty on the outside, but addiction is never pretty.
