I certainly say I have an addiction. And, it has been for many years. My addiction is for "chocolate" ! I just must have chocolate every day, any thing chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate icecream, chocolate milk, and if nothing else for the day, a kitkat. How about you ? Would you say you have an addiction ? What would that be ?

Hello Sarah. I understand. Watching movies can get very addictive. During my college years, I used to go the movie theatres atleast three times a week. I enjoy all kinds of movies. I miss those years very much.

i can say that my addiction is cola, coke to be exact. i used to drink a lot per day, but since i got married my wife introduced me to the world of juices, lemon tea and other beveredges. but still i love to drink cola. sometimes i have to sneak to have a small serving. my mother is half paralyzed for two years because of diabetes and high blood pressure so i really need to control my cola intake.

Thank you for your responses. Health comes forefront of course. Over-eating or over-drinking some items can drastically effect the health. I know I should also control taking chocolates. I have been eating a bit too much.

Hi greenline... Yes, I have a few addictions too.. I smoke!!! That is an addiction which isn't healthy... Internet surfing is my another addiction... I spend hour in accumulating knowledge about different things on the internet... Along with these I love reading... I can't say that i am addicted to it, because 'addiction' gives a bad meaning; but reading has helped me a lot and it is a real good thing...

Yes, of course, reading is informational and even educational. Spending time on the internet also at times out of necessity. I do understand that. Internet has become the information highway these days !

Yeah, reading has been highly helpful to me during my life. Lately, I have taken a liking for Mark Twain. So you will find me searching for Mark Twain's books in the liabrary... :)

I too love chocolates. I won't say it addiction because chocolates is something everyone loves to eat. Chocolate - the universal language of friendship & love. The only word that transcends the barriers of age and language intriguing everyone alike - from kids to their grand parents ! Chocolates have indulged the mankind, in its various tastes and forms, ever since it was first made. Chocolate craving is very common, but can we actually be addicted to it? Yes.No..I really don't have any idea about it. Because consumers who preferred to eat in secret reported a higher degree of aberrant eating. The extent to which the behaviour of "chocolate addicts" resembles that of eating disordered individuals and other addictions remains to be clarified.

Hello Aira. That is very well said. That makes me thick if I should say I am addicted to chocolate or not ! May be I should say I just love to eat chocolate, anything that has chocolate or chocolate flavor, at any time of the day. That might be the better way, right ? Thank you.

That is very good. So, you do have a good control on yourself, staying away from addictive things. Yes, fortunate in a way ! Have a nice day !

My old roommate had an addiction to chocolate. She decided that since she felt like she should have chocolate ever day, she should go on a no chocolate diet for three months just to break herself of the habit. She did it. We all thought she was nuts. :) I have an addiction to working. I always feel like I'm wasting my time if I'm not working or making progress towards something.

Oh I see. Addiction to working ! Well, that is to achieve your goals. I would say, that may be an adiction, but that is good for your career, right ? Best wishes to you to make progress and reach your goals !

I think that everyone has an addiction of some type and I'll have to say one of my strongest is the chocolate. I try to be good but it's just so hard.

Hello Jen. How are you ? Chocolate ? Oh, that's like me then. Yes, it is pretty hard to stay away from chocolate, isn't it ? For dessert, a nice chocolate cake with lots of cream is my best choice ! How about for you ? Do you like that too ?

Hey greenline! I don't think that you are alone when it comes to your chocolate addiction! I love chocolate too! I can't say I have to have it everyday, but I sure do love it! I am a junk food junkie! My addiction is candy, cookies and cakes! I think candy and cakes is the biggest part of it! I like ice cream, but being that it is still way too cold here I don't crave ice cream yet! So, I would say that cakes, cupcakes, donuts are my major addictions and then comes chocolate bars and chocolate candy!

Hello Opal. We are very much alike. I keep a bucket of chocolate ice cream in my refrigerator always, and would enjoy that any time of the day. It is very refreshing for me.

Wow I love chocolates too, but I'm not yet addicted to them. ^^ But yes, I think I do have an addiction and that is the INTERNET!!! I knew it, I feel like if I miss to surf in the net in a day, it's like Im dying. LOL. I just really need to open and update my accounts, blog, network, mylotting, photoshop, editing, etc. I can say doing stuff in the net i\has become a big part of my life. I always say to myself, ok I'm not going to use the computer today, but I always ended up using it, and sometimes if I use it I try to say, ok Im not gonna use it for long hours, I'll sleep early tonight, but then I always ended up staying late using the computer. I guess this is what we called addiction and I am a certified computer addict. Sometimes, I tell my mom and other people, I think I can't live w/o computer, I'm looking for it every now and then. ANd they always tell me to limit and stop the addiction something, and I used to wit them and say, "if there will be an earthquake, I'm going to carry and save my computer." or "If you are going to sell the computer coz of my addiction it's better that you sell me with the computer too!"

Hello Summer. That is an excellent way of describing the addiction you have for the computer. You are an excellent writer ! So, what did your mom say ? Is she going to sell you with the computer ? Ha ha ! No, she will keep you with the computer. Thank you so much for your response !

Many people do spend hours a day on the internet. For me, I have to spend many hours a day on the internet at my work place, because that is a way to do the market research related to the company's business.

My addiction is the sport hockey. Every day I must check the scores, must look at the stats and need to watch as much as I can. Can you tell I'm Canadian?

I believe everyone is addicted to something. As for me, I'm addicted to good stories, good games, and table tennis. I'm not addicted to chocolate though..Being addicted is neither bad nor good if you ask me..It's our way to confirm our desire and pleasure.

Yes, you are perfectly right. I agree with you. Everyone is addicted to something. Table tennis ! That would be excellent as an excersize too, wouldn't you say ?

Having tea certainly does health value , right ? Any special kind of tea you drink ? Green tea is said to have herbal values too. I drink green tea once in a while.

I like the way you said : "I like chocolate but sometimes it doesn't like me." Ha ha ! May be you need to discuss it with "chocolate", and ask why not ? Thank you Cyrus. Have a nice day !
