Do you have/had an addiction?

Asked by JustJessica (4049 points ) November 17th, 2010

Personally I’m addicted to food, and a recovering drug addict (7 years clean)....

I’m sure I’m not alone, anyone else care to share any of their addictions?

Tobacco, trying to kick the habit but it is really really really hard. Kudos for kicking the drugs! :)

Tobacco, and alcohol.

I chain smoke like nobody’s business.

As for the past, well, it’s passed.

@Cruiser Uh oh, you and I could not sleep in the same bed. I can’t stand my sheets to tight around my feet.

I don’t think that I am addicted to anything, but I do spend an exorbitant amount of time online.

Trichotillomania, but it has subsided over the years.
I use to pull the hair out from the back of my head several times a week. We’re talkin’ big chunks and I’d have some pretty big bald spots that I’d have to cover up by simply wearing my hair down. It’s not so bad anymore, but I was doing it so frequently and it had become such a habit, that I would and sometimes still do unconsciously tug and pull out my hair.

@Cruiser I think that might fall into the OCD category but I do the same thing, and my sheets have to be folded properly after being washed.

@Vunessuh My son had a friend that does that, only he pulls it out from the front of his head. It’s not as easy for him to hide. I think his mother has him on medication now.

@marinelife….You can River Dance on my bedsheets or sheet rock your basement with them. My sheets are tucked in so tight, I need the jaws of life to get out of bed every morning!

@JustJessica OCD to me means “Overly Comfortable Dude”! Sweet dreams!

@Vunessuh Big hugs. That sounds fucking horrible.

@Vunessuh I really feel for you. My sister suffered from the same disorder, except that she focused on her eyebrows and eyelashes. Frustrating.

Vunessuh's avatar

Aw, you guys. It’s not that bad anymore. lol I promise.
But if somebody wants to volunteer their scalp, I can pull out someone else’s hair for a change. XD

And <hugs> back.

Symbeline's avatar

@Vunessuh I collect scalps! They’re in my basement. XD

I used to smoke. My nonsmoking is now old enough to drink. Still wish I could smoke without being a smoker, though.

Vunessuh's avatar

@Symbeline Hot damn, I think I hit the jackpot. :D

I had a very hardcore drug habit. thats a thing of the past yay for me

GeorgeGee's avatar

Nah, I’m good. I like oxygen, but heck, I can stop any time I want. And I like food too, but it’s not like I NEED it.

It no doubt sounds ridiculous, but I assure you there is a 12-step group for it: love. Although, coming from me, perhaps it wouldn’t sound so ridiculous.

Also answering people’s questions, but that’s related to love, so what’s the diff?

I would also say tobacco except that I didn’t smoke cig’s I smoked shisha in a hookah. I did it 2 or 3 times a night for several years. those who have smoked hookah know a session can last an hour… and I got sick if I did’t have it. I guess I’m on a hiatus now.. I haven’t had it in 3 months and currently have no desire to.. but I dont want to say I never will again cause its fun to blow massive smoke clouds and do tricks with it…

Got pretty close to alchoholism when I was only 18 but after a month of being drunk 24/7 my life turned to shit and I had to react, didn’t look back.

xxii's avatar

I think I might be addicted to cantaloupe.

zenvelo's avatar

I’m a recovering alcoholic, 24+ years sober, former two pack a day smoker, 22+ years.

We are all addicted to something, a routine is an addiction. If you go out of your routine your body reacts the same way as if you don’t have a drink. I am addicted to a few things but they do not interfere with my enjoyment and success in life. My morning Dunkin Donuts coffee is number 1.

It’ all about the endorphins baby!

I’m addicted to stuffed animals. I have at least 100 if not more. If I find one in the store that I like, I have to have it. And if I dont get it i’ll go back the next day and get it. I also won’t by the stuffed animal unless it’s perfect. Perfect face, everything purportional, soft, etc. <—Do you think that’s weird ? I also have an addiction to cleaning my ears. I hate the thought of having dirty ears. It grosses me out. I clean my ears at least 2 times a day if not more. My boyfriend even lets me clean his ears. Cause his ears are soooo dirty ! It drives me insaine. I kno thats weird, i’ll probably regret posting that. :/ oh well. I’‘m weird but thats me :P
