    Question Do you have any addictions ?

    Addictions aren't just about drugs; they can be about anything that one cannot stop whenever they want because of a dependence, like the Internet, chocolate, sex, or whetever.

    Carbohydrates. Seriously. Starting with sugar in sweets and ending with tons of rice, pasta and bread, I'm a regular carbohydrate junkie.

    And that is followed by Internet access and media like anime and movies and books.

    Combine them and you have a constantly-munching-while-watching-animes-24/7-in-a-window-while-browsing-Satorian.

    I drink occasionally, about two times a month perhaps and don't smoke, while eating no meat, fish or poultry, so I'm living somewhat healthy otherwise.

    And for some reason videogames stopped being fun for me. I can remember wasting away hours on different games years ago, but somehow that just vanished. I can't get into them and there are things I'd rather do than playing videogames. Very odd.

    I don't know if it's an addiction, but I love eating. It is actually my life's pleasure. I can go for days, weeks and months without sex, alcohol or entertainment, but I have to eat good food sometimes!! (beyond the food I eat for survival reasons of course)

    Internet, video games and books.

    You know those questions someone poses that you just have to have the answer to? If I can't get to a computer and google it I feel like I will go crazy!

    I don't really miss video games when I am not playing them, but once I start I find it very difficult to stop - I will sit there with my belly rumbling, my throat parched and dying to pee, just so I can finish this level or beat that boss. It's pretty sad.

    And books. One of the reasons I hate work is that it takes valuable time away from all the books I have to read.

    merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral." - Leo Tolstoy

    For me that would be; music (I need it almost 24/7, even at night or can't sleep), Internet (mainly forums), video game, TV (movies) and since recently again tobacco...although I could/can quit whenever I want without any tricks or rubbish like those gums.

    My addiction is playing my guitar; if I can't get to it for some reason I get all cranky, irritable and jumpy.

    Interesting polls.
    I voted for "alcohol" and "tabacco".
    Don't need sex, no gambling, no drugs.
    Oh, I forgot to vote for chocolate. :P

    I was addicted to Internet a few months ago, but not anymore.

    The Internet, definitely has taken over as my addiction.
    I could not get to sleep at night, and I feel irritated if I cannot
    or don't have time to go on the computer.

    I'm a Megalomaniac.

    I really go insane if I don't hear music.

    Internet, and mostly for communication. It's so convenient !
    Besides that I like good food, chocolate, games for entertainment.

    Most of all I'm addicted to company and girls xD !

    I find it interesting that once again you started a thread without posting your own addictions. You have a history of this. Is it that you don't have any vices?

    Jref! I have to check it at least once a day if it's possible This forum is like my second family ^^

    Tobacco. I wanted to stop smoking but i couldn't. I don't have a strong will i guess

    Other - I would say music. I quite like being addicted to music. It calms me a lot and makes me feel good

    What time? He posted yesterday at 6:30. Oh, are you referring that he may not want to post his addictions immediately so that no one would know what they were? In that case I guess replies are not expected?

    It seems your addiction is moan and ***** about Maciamo every 5 damn minutes. There surely must be something more interesting than him ?

    Some sociologists proposed an extended view of "personal knowledge", containing what one is able to access on the net within reasonable time. There is hardly any time difference between googling the answer to something or thinking hard about something that might have slipped your mind.
    I wonder what this will mean in future times, where always-on PDAs or perhaps implanted computer devices turn us all into permanent nodes on the net.

    On the contrary. I haven't had much to do with him for several days now, and I really don't find him very interesting...actually quite boring now that you ask. I could respond to you with snide comments, but I won't go there.

    My addiction is pointing out obvious observations to others who seem to be oblivious to the same. That, and keeping people in check when they try to overstep their bounds!

    My addictions are chocolate, JREF, and literature.

    I like looking at women. Even though I have a girlfriend it is still hard not to stare. Maybe that is just a man thing.

    How many people besides guys would actually acknowledge sex addiction?
    I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of but some people. I don't need sex but it's nice to have it available when you get the urge.

    I second that. It's fun sitting around at my university (35,000 students, >50% female in general, >70% in my studies at the moment) and just looking at the people and especially the women. What I find most intriguiing and most peculiar is that many seem to be unaware of their own preciousness. I feel like talking to every single one to make sure they realize how special everyone of them is.

    Humans. Odd folk.

    I think you confused the French word "melomane" (music lover) for "megalomaniac" (delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence).
