What is your non-addictive addiction?

Asked by dubsrayboo (2574points) March 18th, 2011

Mine is gum. Must have my gum. It’s technically not addictive, but I can’t live without it.

What is yours? Soda doesn’t count because most sodas contain caffeine and that is addictive.

Lip balm. I must wear “Burt’s Bees” from the tin tub every night.

I don’t get it. How can it be non-addictive if it is an addiction?
Not trying to be a wise ass. Just curious

@Michael_Huntington think of it as a non-chemical addiction…more like something you can’t live/sleep/do without…like a kid and their blankie

Just looking at my steam profile I’ve played 34.4 hours of video games the last 2 weeks. Which is weird because I only played 2 hours the 2 weeks before.

So I guess I can quit anytime I want.

Cheese. I am normally very cheap when it comes to food shopping I’m that customer who stands in the aisle figuring out how much I’m paying per ounce but I will shell out the cash for a nice cheese. Currently, I have been devouring goat cheese by the handful and that is some expensive but absolutely heavenly cheese.

Tic Tacs. Only the white ones will do. They took the place of cigarettes for me eight years ago.
