Coffee, smokes and heroin.

LOL!! Just kidding - I'd never drink coffee!!


Seriously, Coffee and Marlborro Lights in a box. I can give them up any day I want, but, that's when the Southeast Killing Spree of 2004 will begin.

Someone just has to be quite strong to keep away from addictions, and I am glad I didn't catch up with smokers, drugs or coffeine... but I really like my new computer... is it an addiction? I hope, not.

Well my list is as follows:

Computers
High-tech gadgets
Marijuana (not really an addiction, I've gone long periods without it)
Sexy ladies
Coffee (Tim Hortons right beside my computer desk)
Online gaming
Mustang's
Sun tanning
Pizza

Thats just a few!

If you are going to bother to take the time to do anything then drive it into the ground.


Aha yeah, you're not addicted until you try to quit.

Too much of anything can make you an addict.

Mine? I go through cycles, i'll start drinking 5 cups of coffee a day only to get sick of coffee 3 months later and not drink a cup for 3 months. Nicotine? I still don't believe it's addicting because i smoked for 1.5 years and i just randomly stopped because it got boring. Now just the smell makes me sick for some reason.
porn is obvious.
ATS too although that can fall under cycles, sometimes i forget ATS exists and don't post for 2 months.

Maybe someone can clear up a question I have. I have read several posts regarding a depressed person self medicating or treating their depression with the use of marijuana. If you are depressed why would you use a depressant (marijuana) to treat depression? It just doesnt make any sense. Maybe the reason you cant shake your depression is because of your constant marijuana use.


Just because a certain drug is a depressant doesn't make you 'sad' or 'depressed', it means that it slows down your heart and breathing. Alcohol is a depressant but everyone has a good time on it!

I'm addicted to ciggarettes, tried to quit a few times, tried the gum just didn't work for me.

Secondly which I'm surprised no one else has mentioned is I'm also a gambling addict, I had gone without placing a bet for a month, but just recently fell back into it after a bout of depression, so back on the wagon I get, a little bit poorer but more determined then ever

i too was suprised no one else said gambling.
But more specifically poker. A day doesnt go buy with out me betting on a hand of cards. I am also addicted to working out, i fell like a failure if i miss a day.

I am addicted to cigarettes. I'm working on quitting, and it is not easy.

In the past, I was addicted to alcohol. I was never a drug addict, but did experiment.

To be honest, I'm also addicted to a person in my life, and it's a hard habit to kick as well. I'm addicted to music, playing and listening. I would consider these good addictions though, as they are based in things that make me feel good rather than smoking due to stress or drinking because life sucks.

I am a recovering Heroin Addict , I used it almost Daily from 19-28, I was homeless at times, living from Rave to Rave , Stealing to support my habit , ripping off family , A real loser , Althought I had A ton Of Fun Getting Smacked out , I realized I didn' want to live that way , After rehabs being arrested 17 times I Have managed to get my life together , I currently do Software support for a Major SW company, Have a girlfriend -who I am honest to , A Phat car , lots of toys and have managed to get my credit back together ( there are tricks to this). Although I still drink beer sometimes I try to work a12 step program in my life( runs in the Back office) I beleive breaking addiction comes down to honesty with self and others, having goals, and the willingness to change and the desire to do So , Our maker gave up free will , and with that I beleive we can do anything we want to . Addiction is a midset and a lie, Although it may not seem that way when your addicted, Spawnica.

I think Addictions come from boredom. To much time not enough to do.

Throughout my life I would have said pot, smokes, booze, video games, gambling. But I have been able to give up all at a drop of a hat. What I have had problems with are sports and music (records in particular. I am a DJ) I cannot go a day w/out ESPN or mixing a few records.

Hi all,

I for one, am addicted to porn. I love seeing nakedwomen. I love my wife, and we have a great sex life. The cool thing is, she loves porn just as much as I do, so I think it helps our sex life. As for peoples problems quiting their addictions, I believe it all has to do with willpower. Two years ago my dad was a big smoker and alcoholic. He went to the doctor and got some news that basically said, if you continue on this path, you will be dead soon. Well wouldnt you know it, the next week was New years Eve, and I had a huge party which he attended. And you know what? That night he quit alcohol and cigarettes cold turkey and hasnt touched them since.. I think its been five years since he quite both.. Good luck to all in the fight against your addictions!

i for one am also addicted to cigarettes. while i could give a s@#$ less about my health, it puts a big dent in my wallet. one may also say that i'm addicted to sex but that aint a big deal to me. just as long as i have at least one working hand i'm content. i sure as hell would never toutch coke, crack, or heroin though cause i can so see myself getting hooked on that as well. but yeah, addictions suck, cept for sex, can never get enough of that.
