The ONE addiction you would never give up?

Post by arttieTHE1manparty on Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:14 pm

A lot of us here are addicts of a fashion.  Whether it is a CD collection, music in general, sports, books, whatever, we all have something that we are addicted to...sometimes several things.  But what is that ONE thing that you would NEVER give up, unless it meant something like losing your family or something that extreme?

For me, it may surprise people, but it isn't music...although I am definitely addicted and can't imagine living without it.  But, for me, my one huge addiction is...


BASEBALL!


I subscribe to XM Radio solely to listen to baseball.  My house is filled with Kansas City Royals memorabilia, and I have boxes upon boxes of items stashed above our garage.  I wear Royals clothing almost to the point of exclusivity.  Even my work shirts when I am teaching have Royals logos on them.  On most days, not only am I wearing Royals shirts, my belt buckle, wallet, and watch are Royals, my socks are 95% of the time, my coat is, I always have a hat with me, my lunchbox is Royals, and even my school ID lanyard is Royals.  My license plate reads ROYLSFN, for crying out loud!  LOL!

So...what is YOUR addiction you would never give up?  Someone else has to be as sick as me....right???

Fast food. Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Subway, Arby's. I just can't live without them! I know which item I like at each place and never order anything different, ever.

Staying sports related with the one man party, I would have to say College Football.

There's no doubt, mine is metal, especially Christian metal since it has had such an impact on my life. That said, I'm with Arttie on baseball (Texas Rangers for me). Also, Pittsburgh Steelers football. I bleed black and gold.

Sadly this is me as well.  Trying to eat better, but still manage to eat at one of those places at least once, sometimes twice a week.  I also order exactly the same thing at each place.

Yeah, like New Creation and Staybrite eating out is huge for me.  My family ate out so little when I was young (maybe 3-4 times per year) that it was associated with special occasions and now any restaurant food is comfort food.  I would eat out every day if the budget allowed it.

Chemical addiction: caffeine.  I tried 7 years ago and that lasted for about a year.  I'm using my recent surgery as the jump-off point to try again.

I'm pleased to say music is not an addiction.  Last year my family took a nice vacation where I didn't listen to ANYTHING all week and I DIDN'T MISS IT.  It showed me that I really could give it up if my mind is otherwise occupied.

I'm pretty much addicted to playing games, reading books and watching movies and series. And, of course, I'm trying to take care of my health. I just can't imagine to live without these Smile .

I have a few addictions: good soft and hard drinks, driving hard (not dangerously, don't worry), cars in general. But it would take a lot for me to give up music, both playing and listening.

Some of mine are Star Wars, pizza, Pepsi, collecting CDs and videos of mostly Christian rock/hard rock and metal. If I like a band enough I will buy every CD they have released.

I'd say food.  I never seem to be able to break away from it and just keep failing year after year.

Same here and same thing every time - but I also have to say Horse Power , anything with an engine really and of course Metal - that's me in a nutshell.

Definitely music. I love collecting cd's because I simply LOVE having the disc in my possession. When I buy cd's, they always have to be the original printing too. Sometimes, I pay $60+ for those rare discs.

Count me in Smile . I just counted yesterday that I've bought 64 cd's + a couple of LP's in a year.

I have over 1400 CDs, and over 500 vinyl albums, and they, particularly the former, continue to grow regularly, thanks largely to Ebay.
Yes, I suppose one could say that's an addiction.
