My addictions:

***SEX*** my wife gets a little tired of it, but I just keep pestering

Cigars, and pipe tobacco
4x4's
***ATS***

Bowling in Latin America, while drinking several liters of beer, using fowl Spanish at the same time................After about 5 liters of beer I'm doing victory dances every time I throw(yes throw) the bowling ball.

Everyone in the bowling alley is awestruck, and they don't know how to handle a tall gringo..... It really is good fun for all....

I'm addicted to methamphetamine and am currently looking for my next fix. Soooooooo damn itchy, and haven't had sleep for 3 days.

Whoa, I'm really sorry to hear that Bud. Next thing you know you'll be enrolled in a methadone program or hitting up the next worst thing. I hope you find a way out of that particular nightmare, and fast. Good luck with all of that.

Oh whoops, I should've added an emoticon to show I was kidding. Now I feel pretty bad.

Sorry, I should have guessed. I just know there are people who've been prescribed pain medication that became addicted, only to move on to other drugs that are even more dangerous and addictive. Its sad and I hurt for all of them.

berenike, I admire you for being able to give up so many things that are addicting for you. I wish I had your perserverence.

I can say I am addicted to gambling, once I start, I cannot stop until I am completely broke. It is actually the rush or zing I feel when the money counter starts running really fast meaning I am winning a good spot of money. The other night I won $1, 900.00 dollars and only spent 100 doing so. It was a good win for me. I loved the feeling of winning. I want to go back tonight, cause I love it.

Since I am a depressed person with a borderline personality disorder, I take prescription medicine. A couple of weeks ago I quit taking that medicine, I didn't need it I told myself. After about a week, I was so depressed and sad emotionally, I slept for about four days, didn't have a desire to get up, answer the phone or anything. I started taking that medicine again and of course started feeling better. I wonder if I am addicted to the meds or what?

Addiction is a mental disorder in that a person believes they have to have a certain commodity in order to feel good or feel what they want to be normal for themself, that is my idea of addiction.

Is addiction functional or is it organic, do we just think we need it or does our body or mind actually need the fix.?

Oh, I am addicted to cigarettes too, having smoked since I was 17. Funny thing is, when I am gambling, I don't smoke at all, until I leave that casino.

I'm sorry to hear you're suffering from depression. Tentickles started a thread -Understanding Depression- a little while ago.

I don't know if you ever came across it, but in case you didn't here's a link. Forgive me if you contributed and I've forgotten you.

www.belowtopsecret.com...

There's some very good information and everyone (with only a couple of exceptions that I remember) was very supportive.

Gambling has never been that appealing to me - I think I'm a bit too cautious and don't like losing money. I'm wondering if there are any computer games that would give you a similar buzz? I play a lot of games and am always thrilled to see my score going up.

I hope the suggestion doesn't sound too lame - I was thinking of something that would occupy the void left by not gambling should you decide to cut down.

I hope things will work out for you.

berenike thanks for responding to my post. I checked out the link your gave me and read a lot of the posts, and there was a lot of good info there.

I play computer games also and there is a site slots.com that has some of the casino games. I do play these games for a time but they can't really replace the actual casino. I do need to slow my casino spending, it is not the rule to win big everytime in any casino and I have spent entirely too much money over the last couple of years.

I live alone with my dogs and only have a couple of friends who I visit with and it just gets old staying by myself so I go to the casino to get out of the house....no really, I go to gamble. lol

If someone were to say I was addicted to something it would probably be Paris, France. I am always collecting items from Paris or France in general...Would that be considered an addiction??? I dont think I am addicted to anything really. I get bored easily but anything to do with France always gets my attention. France is more a feeling of love than addiction IMO.

That's interesting mblahnikluver, why France? I know you said it makes you think of love, but is there more to it? I've never heard of anyone collecting Paris or France related items. What kinds of stuff do you have? If you don't mind my asking that is.
