    I have a terribly addictive personality that has caused very destructive things in my life at times. I've been addicted from everything from men to cigarettes. I did manage to steer clear from drugs, though. I *knew* that would be a bad road to even think of going down. However, after I got pregnant with my daughter, I realized that there wasn't an addiction in the world as important to me as her.

    Yeah that. Funny about the cigarettes, they've taken over vodka as my crutch. I never smoke one after the other, but I've found myself reaching for my emergency pack when I'm mad, stressed, or full of nervous energy.

    Addictive personality? Yup, that's me:
    Cigarettes, diet coke, food, men - and ALWAYS the wrong sort :rolleyes - you know, the lead guitar player with a line of bull and no real job.... Been there, done that with drugs but have been clean, mostly, for the last 21 years, except for prescriptions. (they don't count, do they?) The only problem I've ever had with alcohol is acting a complete fool when I drink.

    Hot and Sour soup and cigarettes are creeping their way back in. Quit smoking for the thrid time last winter and lately I've been "treating" myself to smoke breaks way too frequently.

    Never got into drugs. Sure, I hit the bong once or twice but never saw what the hub-bub was about. I've seen the destructive side of it on one of my former friends...not hitting the chronic anytime soon.

    Alcohol--meh, a beer now and then is fine. My house is alcohol free. I don't see the fun in drinking alone and don't really need it.

    Video games (NCAA Football is my latest craze), booze (though I can when necessary go without), and to a lesser degree, cigars (once in a great while). I used to be a real internet junkie but I can at least go for a few weeks at a time without getting online now.

    Cigarettes and coffee. Don't think I will ever kick the coffee habit, but I am getting ready to start Zyban to try and kick the smoking habit. I have smoked on and off for 17 years. Been having the dreams that I won't be around to see my kids grow up if I don't quit. Used to bite my fingernails. So yep, I have an addictive nature!! The one thing I don't have an addition too is alcohol or drugs (nicotine excluded). I drink about once a year and am allergic to most drugs ie; penicillin, codeine, vicodin. Guess I won't ever be a prescription abuser.

    I think I'm the kind that does. Besides having favorite things like coke, I'm also very much a creature of habit which makes it worse. Like going out to eat and always having the same thing or always doing things the same way.

    On the subject of being addicted to coke, I drink wayyyyyyy too much of it and I've given it up before, which the withdrawl to is wicked. But I always seem to go back to drinking it. Maybe I'm just lazy.
