    I figure if it isn't a substance addiction, it's an ocd issue, not addiction. I get OC about essentially anything that gets my attention for more than 5 minutes.

    I had to click yes-other. Sex, Dr Pepper, Erotica, Coffee, Porn, Writing (lol - guess what I write about?), Forums (DP and two others - all related to the above).

    You may have a preference for something but that's altogether different then actually suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

    Coffee. I drink about 5 to 6 cups most mornings.

    Habitual use of something is not the same thing as a destructive addiction. Someone who reads, watches TV/movies or does social acceptable behavior, even to excess is not necessarily an addict. Someone who eats, does substances or even exercises to the point of having a severe physical, emotional impact have negative addictions. And even those are usually temporal in nature.
