I have a few addictions.

Trina's gonna hate me for this, but I picked up smoking again. For CHrist's sake, quitting feels like it'll kill you faster than smoking ever could.

I'm addicted to coffee. I made about half a pot this morning and there's about a cup left in it.

I am addicted to the internet. It's the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night.

I'm addicted to Reservoir Dogs and Haggard.

I used to be an alcoholic. Thankfully I've given it up and haven't touched a drink in a long time.

I used to be addicted to porn. That got smoothed over once I became sexually active.

I'm seriously addicted to Trina.

That's all I can think of for now. I'm not sure if I'm the only one with so many addictions, serious and non-serious. I figure that since we're a family here, we can talk about them, maybe add some comic relief and give support to eachother.

I'm disappointed young man! *wags finger* You know that isn't the case. Try harder! tongue.gif

I'm probably addicted to quite a few things in moderation. Nothing that I could say was making my life a misery.

Chocolate, sex, caffeine, nicotine (although I'm working on that one) and perhaps love unsure.gif

I can agree with you on the last four. I'm not as much of a chocolate lover as I used to be. Though sex, if done in moderation with people you love (dear, close friends and lovers for me) it's not that bad. I'm a hopeless romantic. At least I have Trina in my life, or who knows what'd be happening.

Speaking of being addicted to love (and this is slightly spammish, but it's among a relevent post), my ex, whom I loved dearly and who dumped me for no particular reason, misses me and wants me back. That's a rather satisfying feeling.

Okay, all my coffee drinking is getting to me. I'm trembling uncontrolably. Maybe I need to lie down or something.

i hear that, i blame university....well in my case at least, i still use it excessivly while i'm at home i don't wake up and use it, usually because of work, or just going out, much more social at home, which is nice smile.gif tongue.gif its even better because i'm going home weekend after next, i have a month to work, 2 1/2 weeks in america (which will rock supreme) then when i get back i get to work with my mate who'll be the manager of the place he works at and has moved into his own flat with his girlfriend while i've been wasting away here

I am addicted to anything that can be done more than once has a negative influence on my life. At the moment the list includes (but is not restricted to):

Smoking
Smoking
Morning cup of coffee
After-lunch cup of coffee
IRC
MSN chat
Matazone Forums
Intelligent conversation
Whisky'n'cokes with the mates (not to be confused with the previous one)
Sharing emotions
Humour

Ironically I am not addicted to work or money, which is a shame cos they at least have practical upshots. Also I am not addicted to coffee, so I think I should analyse it and find out what it is about coffee that I'm not addicted to ...

... and yes, they are all distinctly making my life a misery at the moment (except humour) , and must all be stopped.

For good.

I'm serious

ohmy.gif Smoking and it keeps increasing. I think I'm picking up the slack for Phoenix
huh.gif Caffiene. If I don't have a Dr. Pepper in the morning don't talk to me until I have.
wink.gif Gum. I have to have gum in my mouth almost constantly. The only time I don't is when I'm eating or sleeping. This could be due to my oral fixation.
tongue.gif When I did get sex that could have been seen as an addiction. Had to be at least 3 times a day everyday, or I would be like myself without a Dr. Pepper and a smoke. But we all know it's been forever so I've kicked that habit. lol
biggrin.gif I used to be a work-a-holic. Now though I hate getting more hours.
laugh.gif The net, but duh who doesn't have that one. lol

cool.gif I think that's it for now, I'm sure there's more but I can't think of them.

I'm addicted to food. Big time, oy.

And holy crap...3 times a day? blink.gif

I'm addicted to the Internet, but not as much as I used to be. Not even close.

Shopping...agh. I love buying things. Not just for myself...for anyone, really. I've become more addicted to it lately.

Probably food. As anybody who's seen me can attest, I really, really like to eat. Also the computer, over a 24-hour-span I may well spend more time on this thing than I spend sleeping. If we count activities, I am almost always, when awake, either playing a game, reading a book or listening to music. Often the third in conjunction with one of the other two.

That's about it. I'm a very light drinker, an even lighter pot-smoker, and as for sex...well, outside of a relationship (as I am at the moment) it's more trouble than it's worth to seek it out.

Yeah, man. I feel you on that. I've tried to be a womanizer/man-slut and I have found that 1) it's not easy and 2) it leaves me feeling figuratively cold.

I wouldn't say I'm addicted to Dr. Pepper, but I do sometimes have a severe compulsion to buy one and enjoy the Dr. Pepperness.

Sweet God almighty, woman! I think I'd OD on nicotine if I were to do that.

That's how I was at first too. Whenever I got really, really depressed and worked up, I'd throw back a cold one to calm me down. It eventually became so that every time I got depressed, I'd wolf down three or four or more. I have a low tolerence for alcohol because of the meds I take so I get rather drunk rather easily. The worst time was when I was 17 got into a fight online with Harmonie in a chatroom and the fight got exacerbated when I told her, "Chardonnay tastes like hell." Eventually Harm left the chatroom and I was talking to her girlfriend while crying my eyeballs out. She then said something about kicking my ass and that was it for me. I downed some more Chardonnay, threw back some Mudslide and then found some French whiskey. I saw that it was 40% ABV and drank three mouthfuls each time chasing it with Mudslide. I got really f*cking wasted. After crying my eyes out to my friend Billie who was staying with us at the time (she got kicked out of her house; we're the house for wayward boys and girls in this town), I passed out on my bed and woke up with a hangover that lasted for two days. I finally acknowledged I had a problem when I started hurting feelings here on the forums. I still have problems every once-in-a-while staying away from booze, but I think I can do it. smile.gif

I think I may well be addicted to smilies too looking at my post.

Shopping is also a big one for me. I can't help spending money. I prefer spending it on my but I love buying presents for people as it's the look on their face when they get it smile.gif I've got to be careful at the moment as I can't overspend.

Lets see...

Chocolate - I medicate with chocolate.

Sugar in all forms, especially See's sugar cane twists which my friend mails to me from the other side of the country (all hail her wonderful friendness). And I eat them all in the course of a week, and then get really snappy with people when they're gone.

Flavor - I'd say food but this extends to things like eating plain A1 sauce out of a bowl. Anything that tastes good will work. A1 is great because instead of actually eating when I'm not hungry, I just taste.

And probably the guy I like's cologne. Which drives me nuts. ph34r.gif Imagine me trying to randomly and discreetly sniff him. Except more subtle. Slightly.
