    Re: Are you an addict?

    I am addicted to reading strong arguments on forums and news comments. I read more comments then news.

    Could anyone with over 10k posts tell me how they cope with addiction?

    Re: Are you an addict?

    No.

    I am blissfully completely unaddictied and unaddictable to anything.

    I smoked my first cigarette when I was 18 and I never felt the need to smoke. I started smoking socially when I went out because a lot of other people smoked and I have this issue where my right eye cries in the presence of smoke,but somehow, if I also smoke, then it's all ok.

    I kept doing this social smoking thing for 2-3 years. I mean, let me paint you a picture. I would go out, smoke 1-5 cigs, then I could sit at home or in the college dorms and not feel the need to smoke for weeks. I say weeks and not months because that's the most I didn't go out, usually during the winter.

    In that entire span of time, I bought just 2 packs of cigarettes by myself (I bought some more combined with others when I went out under the agreement that i can smoke up to my share of the pack. Ofc, I rarely did, but he got to keep the pack and all cigs left in it from my share. I sought no money or debt of any kind).
    From the first pack,the first one I smoked a grand total of 2 cigs and even those, I couldn't finish on my own. I mean, I was in the college kitchen because you're not allowed to smoke indoors but there was no smoke alarm there, light one up, the first one from the first pack I ever bought by myself, got to about half and I put it down. It made me sick. The next one I tried to smoke was outside, same deal. Couldn't smoke on my own. Just with other people, so the rest of the pack I smoked with a friend. The 2nd pack I bought almost a year later, tried to smoke 1 cig, couldn't... again, halfway through, gave it to the first smoking homeless man I saw. And then I stopped smoking all together. I endured the right eye crying when I went to the club, and then I stopped going to the club because I was 21-22 and way better than all those people and so I didn't feel like associating, even in the limited and rare fashion I did until then, with the plebes, the drunks and the fools. I gain nothing by being there and lose time and health.

    Alcohool, same deal. I cannot get an addiction to alcohol.

    I haven't had a drink since late april. I know this not because I keep count of my drinks like a recovering alcoholic, but I started a new workout regime for the summer. Even when I go out I don't get alcoholic beverages, to the dismay or amusement of my friends.

    I haven't tried hard drugs, nor will I because I'm not a moron, but I am pretty sure I am completely un-addictable to those too.

    Social media and forums... I don't have facebook or such crap. I have linkedIn but I barely use it. I spend time on professional forums for my craft but I think I spend a good deal of time here too, about 1h-2h a day. I don't know if this is addiction, I put it down to boredom or smth.

    I'm a functional addict of Facebook and other social media outlets. Functional b/c I'm still competent, and I get everything done that needs to be done. Social media is just a gap filler ,but I'm usually reading or typing half of my day away.

    I votes yes because I have things I do everyday and I feel weird if I don't them. I go for a run every morning for example.

    Re: Are you an addict?

    Nope, I'm not addicted to a thing. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I don't drink coffee, I'm not addicted to games or hobbies or online forums. I recently took a couple of weeks off here because I was busy and didn't miss it a bit. If anything, I have a non-addictive personality, I can give up anything I want, any time I want, because I just don't get that attached.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I like to mix my ecstacy up with a redbull and two Five Hour Energies, and then chug the whole thing. I then go to the local Elementary School and pretend to be a Jehovas Witness. And that's my typical Tuesday morning!
