We all know about addictive behaviors and their effects on people. What are your views on addiction/addictive behaviors? If you have one, or more, what is your addiction? How do you feel about the matter in general or more personally?

I'll keep mine brief. I am a smoker. I realize that smoking is a mask for my deep, personal pain. I smoke, because I have no excuse, and that the chemical addiction to cigarettes is quite strong, due to the length of my addiction. Currently, I am working on this process, of breaking the habit and replacing my habit with a change of routine. I won't lie, it is so difficult, I must monitor my behavior by the hour. I feel unnerved, furious, happy and elated, and quite frankly in "need" of a cigarette, due to the electrical signals sent to my brain, from my addiction, tell me this is so. I am quitting to gain control, and not to be controlled. -There, I said it, finally, at long last!

I would like to hear others' thoughts on the matter of addictions in general.

Mine is just the typical stuff. I mess myself up with alcohol and drugs, used them to escape from the stress of life and ruined myself in the process.

Is this a joke?

Smoing is not a mask for anything! Give over.

I (like another ATS member) am a heroin addict. I did not get into scag to mask any deep personal pains. I just #ed up a long time ago and got to involved.


I think I am going to have to stay away from this thread, it will make me more and more furious!

When I was littler... around elementary school aged, I was literally Addicted to Chocolate. Not the addicted where I couldn't live without it, but the kind where if you put a Tub full of chocolate in front of me, I wouldn't stop eating til it was all gone. I actually read that Chocolate has something similar to Nicotine, i can't remember what it's called, but if it's eaten enough, it could cause you to become addicted. I still am fairly addicted to Chocolate, but not as much as i used to be.

Since i was a very small child i have had an addiction to breathing. Ive tried to wean myself off of it from time to time but with little success. Maybe I should go in for counciling. Does Betty Ford do breath prevention sessions?

But seriously, I am in the same boat as mrmonsoon. I can burn up hours at a time chattering here on ATS. It's wierd, I think "Just one more post, then Im going to go do something." Then I usually spot a thread that catches my eye, that i have to read or respond to.

i am a marijuana addict. i didnt think iwas, but check this out. i usually wake up around 11 am. (i work 4-12s). by noon, the one hitter is lit up. then about 2 more times before work. as i drive to work i smoke. i take a break around 9 pm, and, yep, you guessed it, smoke. then on the way home, i stop at the "spot" hook up some more, and smoke on the way home. once im home and in front of my puter...out comes the one hitter again, smoke till i sleep, and then up at 11.....the cycle perpetuates....


that being said, im not complaining. i enjoy my life. i pay my bills, raise kids, feed em, shop for them, the kit and kaboodle. for the lady trying to quit...chew gum...seriously..it works..gets your mind off of it...

I am addicted to Mt. Dew. Must have it every day.

Also, I guess I would be considered addicted to porn. I "collect" semi nude and nude pics of women from Playboy. This is tappering off due to me spending all of my time on ATS.

There's our new slogan. From "Deny Ignorance" to "ATS- More addictive than Porn."
