Addictions


There are some who love chocolates : chocoholics and then there are some who like to gamble. There are some who like to drink a lot of alcohol.

What are your addictions?

Caffeine in a bad way (specifically coffee/espresso and Pepsi). ;) Also, I get addicted to movie/tv show/book fandoms really easily. And games, like Feeding Frenzy and Bejeweled... I don't think I have other physical addictions though.

Chocolate, mostly. I was kind of addicted to caffeine during the school year, but I haven't been drinking it much lately. The Internet of course...and reading (but we all knew that).

Eh, and LiveJournal. Very addicted to LiveJournal. XD I don't know how I left that one off the list, since I've been posting there for almost four years now.

Also, I used to be very addicted to making colorbars. Not so often anymore, but I used to (as you can see by the second google result :P)

x__hypocampus, is Oliver named after a specific character or anything? It's so cute. :D I named my PalmOne "Obi-Palm". ^_~

The internet and web design, most definitely. I'm always thinking up a new project to work on that I have a hard time finishing anything that I've started. Luckily, I managed to finish this web site!

i think it can be kinda dorky but i can be a tiny bit addicted to learning... either learning about formal topics or new hobbies or whatever. :P

i don't know.
i was trying to think up what i was addicted to.
i was so stuck, especially when i was the one who made up the thread.
what was i addicted to?
i think i go through phases of obsession instead.
i'll seem really addicted to one thing...
but it's new shininess wears off and i drop it
i pick up a new hobby or whatever
the only thing i can think of that i've always stuck to was writing in my journal.
even during moments when i didn't want to pick up that pen.
i forced myself because i knew that i'd smack myself later.
i don't know if that's an addiction.
but once i get started on writing, i keep on writing and it's hard to put down the pen.
same thing with reading - if it's a good book, i won't be able to put it down unless i finish the last page.

mmm....
oh wait
i know

I AM ADDICTED TO WORLD OF WARCRAFT
*grin*
i use my exboyfriend's account though
i have to take turns with him to play
he doesn't mind.
:D

Cigarettes, forums, chery coke and music are the main ones. Oh, and writing. But only when I can't write for whatever reason. When I'm free to write I'm easily distracted from it but when I absolutely can't write all I want to do is write.

Chocolate IS good, but I wouldn't consider it an addiction. Hershey's chocolate is best... I live about a 2-3 hours from Hershey... go there and you can smell it in the streets.

Ick! I don't really like chocolate. Apparently I'm odd. I can eat a tiny bit of it but a whole bar of chocolate (even a mini one) is too much.

Cakes and biscuits :D People have learned not to put them in front of me if they want any left. The only chocolate I really eat is Thorntons.

I used to like chocolate, but not anymore. My vices tend to come and go. At the moment it's Coke Icees or otherwise frozen Cokes and They Might Be Giants.

I wish I was addicted to finishing things! [eyes stack of books on nightstand]

I think the chocolate is gonna get me through JulNo. By August I may be sick to death of it.
Also, I'm currently addicted to Sprite lemonade, or Mountain Dew. The only problem is, about the only place you can get Mountain Dew here is at KFC, save for a few supermarkets.
