    Lots of things, including at least half of the choices in the poll.

    Family, friends, reading, sex, music, dancing, learning new things, seeing justice and/or fairness prevail, especially in our society, camping, hiking, swimming, trying new things, helping people.

    Having someone who loves you and you love back is the best thing in the world!

    I love my family, friends, pets (dog and cat) and job. Life is good.

    You don't have the correct option in the poll...which would be "Drugs".

    Consistent happiness is a choice.

    Love, productivity, health, a clear conscience, helping someone, "enough" money, seeing humor in most anything, and not taking myself too seriously.

    The same could be said about anything. Entertainment and being "put off" is basically what makes us happy. I might like going on roller coasters, and roller coasters make me happy, but they don't do anything more than drugs do.
