Many things can be addicting for us. I’ve been addicted to computer war games and to caffeine, but not anymore. My only current addiction is food.
Hall marks of addiction are craving, time and energy and money spent on thinking about it, on seeking it, and on doing it, and loss of control. Boy, I have sure had those.
I loved my computer games but they were eating up my life. I came up with a good strategy to deal with that. It didn’t work, so I figured out another good strategy. It didn’t work either. After three or more strategies, I erased all the games off my computer and threw away all the discs. It was very painful. I loved those games.
I still have free cell on my wife’s computer (she never plays it) and chess and poker on my cell phone, but so far I can control the free cell, am not playing it at all lately, and only play the phone games when I’m stuck waiting or on a trip. So these haven’t been a problem. Yet. And maybe they won’t be – I enjoy them but don’t love them.
What are your addictions and what do you do about them?
– the brpppp act if you haven’t seen it yet..

Quote O the Day:
If playing computer games was an occupation, ADD ADHD would not be a disorder.
