...for some it might be coffee , for some it might be reading books , for some it might be playing video games , for some it might be TV , for some it might be music , for some more it might alchohol & for some it might be drugs. ....but for me it has to be the cigarette.I am so addicted to it that I am unable to leave it even after trying to quit several times. What is that you are addicted to? Have you overcome it? If so tell the reason so that other mylotters may find it helpful.

I also love ice cream. There was a time when I was still a student I use to pass by the ice cream shop everyday to decide which flavor is better chocolate or mango. One day I ate mango and decided it was better than chocolate. The next day I ate chocolate and switch to the idea that chocolate is better than mango. So in the end I can not decide which one is better and concluded it was just dependent on my craving for the day. This time I love Arce Dairy ice creams especially the avocado and atis flavors. But since they are seasonal flavors it is hard to find. I also love strawberry and that is the one I usually order in Dairy Queen especially it is Summer here in my country coupled with El NiƱo. By the way since I am not that young anymore I think I should exercise to loose those fats Igain from eating ice cream.

I have been addicted to the internet in the past. It would suck me in and I would use it as often as possible. A lot of the times I would be reading fanfiction or something of the sort, this was years ago. Other times it'd just be a story on a fiction site. I was so enthralled with using the computer. When I met my husband my obsession grew again because that is where we would talk, then I moved in with him and the obsession lingered but this time it was to make money online, and here it is a remaining obsession. As the obsession has changed though, I don't think it's that bad of an obsession do you? After all I reap benefits from being obsessed with the internet.

Coffee is my only vice other than procrastinating. I also spend a lot of time at the computer, but I rationalize that, it is because I am making money and networking for other business contacts or writing freelance articles.

I must have two in the morning, and then at least one in the afternoon. It is not the amount that is the problem, but that I get a headache if I do not have it.

Right now its coffee, Im drinking more than I have ever drank. A few weeks ago I really got into playing on my nintendo DS, I havent played it for ages but played it every day for a few weeks, before the DS, it was books, Id read at least one book every 2 days, I go through phases on what I do most, who knows what I will be doing in the next few weeks.

Hi, krupesh. I am addicted to finding a hair product that will increase my hair growth. There are many products to choose from and I am still seeking the product that will work best for me. I have not overcome it yet because I am still looking for the right product that will fit me.

Hello cream, Sorry to tell you that if you are in the trial & error method you will defenitely lose all your hair.Consult a doctor & take it from him.Its not good for your hair to search for yourself.

ME? iam addicted to food. every time i feel disappointed and tress, i eat a lot of food. i release all my feelings and insecurity to food. that's why i always eat and i enjoy doing it, i don't know why? but if i have enough food on my refrigerator my life is so colorful, it doesn't matter to me if i'am alone the important is i have my food the replacement of being bored and alone. but same as you this is not good to our health. i think its time to minimized it or better to stop addicted into it..

Hi krupesh, I spend most of the time sitting in front of my laptop. I read latest news, listen to music, watch video, play games, etc. I don't miss to log in myLot daily if I'm not away from home. I will carry along my laptop even if having vacation locally. I like watching my favorite tv series as well. I find I'm still very okay even if I don't do any of the activities mentioned above except to visit myLot site. I'm not a regular discussion creator and I just enjoy reading and writing posts here. And I just write a few posts daily. I have cultivated such habit of visiting this forum unconsciously after I had joined myLot as member for several months. I could say I'm addicted to myLot. Since this never affects my daily life whereas I can gain benefit here therefore there is no any reason to quit this site, right?! Happy posting

how much of a difference has it made to your other work like daily chores? Has it ever happened that you have postponed other things just because of MYLOT? It has happened to me several times.

For me, I think anything let me happy and let me have more confidence addicted to me most. For example, I can get more and more happniss from pc games, so I will play it when I have free time. Table tennis and badmition can let me have more confidence, so even I don't like them very much, I also want to play it because I always can find the feeling of win.

Once I get hold of a dictionary, it's so difficult to put it back! A chain of words is formed and I can be involved for many hours. Now I'm addicted to it's other version as well: surfing and searching on net. Thankfully my connection is so unreliable! For real addiction part, I'm quite addicted to eating in general. Can't remain satisfied for long. Had a good meal..one hour, and I'm in for the hunt

I'm blessed with a thin figure and nothing I try adds any weight to it. So no one objects on my eating too much(if ever ) not even me.

It's true, there are different things to become addicted to, in my case it is Internet, because it is a fast and easy way to get in contact with members of my family and with friends, as they are living in different places of the world. Internet is a great way to get in touch with everybody, it also helps to learn and practice languages without travelling all around the world (which would be to expensive, of course). Even other themes or asignatures are easier to find and to study. You are able to save time using the search machines when you know how to do it. But even beeing addicted to Internet, I also love reading books. I never would reemplace one with the other.
