    Yes. The internet in general, although you could say electronic media in general is more accurate. But if those aren't available, I also tend to read a lot of books too.

    I am addicted to long distance running. Since 1976 I have run an average of 2,000 miles a year which normally is about six miles per day. I could no more quit this than give up my right arm. It is an addiction I love and it keeps me young and healthy.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    In the Preinternet Age I was addicted to reading. Then I became Internet reading addict. Now I should upgade to online writing.

    Usually, an alcoholic first moves to LSD, then to heroin.

    Re: Are you an addict?

    Yep. Addicted to Snuff, Chew. Been using it for 25 years. Which also leads to an addiction to brush my teeth 5 or 6 times a day! Regular dental check ups show no signs of mouth issues, no tooth loss. Just a nasty habit. I am also starting to become dependent on Energy Drinks. I stopped drinking coffee a couple years back due to Kidney Stones. The Energy Drinks work well to keep me going but I know they are bad for you.

    But worse than all I am addicted to racing. I have it bad. I will stop what ever I am doing to watch two snails race. It's the one thing that will likely kill me. Almost has a couple times. I have been injured more doing that than anything else in life. Just can't stop.
