My Name is WritingNut, and I am an Addict

Okay. I finally admit it.

But I know I'm not the only one.

We're all addicted to something.

I'm addicted to several things.

Writing/Reading
Everything that encompasses the Blogosphere
My computer
My blackberry
Chocolate
Sushi

I can't live without any of them--at the very least--once per week (well, the sushi and chocolate, but the other four - every single day).

You know how some addictions can be a hindrance on day to day life? Well, it's the opposite for me. These things actually keep me going. I feel like I'm lost without them.

Once I forgot my blackberry at home, got all the way to the train station, missed my train, and drove back to get it... because I knew my day would be ruined if it wasn't with me.

Yeah... okay, maybe I'm a little crazy, but hey, we all have our quirks ;)

What are your addictions?

I'm with you on the BlackBerry and the chocolate. I have a love/hate relationship with my BB. It's a distracting little thing that I can't seem to wean myself off of (and do I really want to?)

It's all love with the chocolate, though. :)

Ha! I'm addicted to:

my laptop
social networking
reading
a sweet late-afternoon snack
kissing my daughter

Ugh, I have so many addictions. I may have to do a blog post to follow on your blog post question LOL! Caffeine, technology, Fringe, People magazine. Amusing post today:)

Joanne said...

Writing, definitely. And coffee too. Walking is an addiction too, I walk wherever and whenever I can.

Liza said...

Writing, coffee, blogging, reading. Don't take any of them from me, please?

Katie Mills said...

uh, pretty much the same as yours! Except the chocolate. I prefer salty to sweet:)

Áine Tierney said...

Chocolate, Crisps, the internet! I like writing, but it often seems like work too, so I wouldn't quite call it an addiction. And I've times where reading is an addiction - but sometimes I'm teetotal. Good post to get us thinking, WritingNut.

Addicted to email, blogger, lemonade, books, and writing! (hate the phone so I'm happy even if I have no idea where it is)

Side note, you get to ride a train every day!? That's so awesome...

Melissa said...

Addicted to my blog, to my iphone, to reading, writing, and california rolls (I'm such a fake sushi lover...), and, I'll be honest, I'm kind of addicted to spending time with my cat. I honestly miss her so much just during the day when I'm at school!!!

Plamena Schmidt said...

: P I had a friend who forgot her cell at home and all day she kept telling me about how she felt she was missing a body part.

I couldn't understand what she meant until I got a cell a few years later.

Melissa Gill said...

I have a totally adictive personality. I stuggle with moderation in everything. In some cases I have to have none (like chocolate) because if I have a little, I just want more, more, more.

Margaret said...

Definitely writing. I'd quit if I could. But I think that's about it.

I'm addicted to bubble baths. There's nothing I love more than sipping a glass of wine while reading the newest books I picked up from the library!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

NetFlix
Guitar playing
My iPad
Sex
(Hey, at least I'm honest!)

alexia said...

LOL, Alex!!

Blogging. Emailing. Writing. Reading. Chocolate for sure!! Wine. Hot baths. My new Droid phone. Oh yeah, and fruit. I am strangely always craving it.

Jai Joshi said...

My addictions are:

the internet (because that includes the blogosphere/email/forums/search engines/youtube)

reading

sleeping

my duvet

and chocolate (but I'm trying to work on being more reasonable with this one)

Heidi said...

Chocolate, Munchos, hot baths and the Food Channel. I am also a writing addict--hope there's a patch for that. ;-)

TK Richardson said...

It doesn't sound crazy at all, in fact over on my blog I've started 'Bloggers Anonymous', because I'm an addict too! hehe You're welcome to drop by and 'join' the club. It's a bit crazy and a lot of fun! :)

Holly Ruggiero said...

...blogging.

Medeia Sharif said...

We have a lot in common. I'm addicted to everything on your list except sushi.

Claudia said...

Oh, that's easy! I am addicted to traveling ;) after that I think emailing, then drinking red wine or coffee with friends and getting together with my fellow writers for feedback.
Healthy addictions are good ;)

There are many of us in the writers addiction predicament. But it's a lovely place to live in my opinion!
