Things I should stop being addicted to (but probably never will be)

Everyone is an addict. Whether they want to admit it or not. Whether it’s on a small scale or a large scale. Whether it’s a serious issue or no big deal. It varies from person to person, and we have our “good” addictions and our “bad” ones. For example, I’m addicted to singing. I can’t go a single day without singing, and if I’m in the car with you, forget about conversation. I will most likely be cranking up the radio and singing whatever irritatingly catchy song comes on. And I wouldn’t consider my addiction to singing a bad one at all. Obviously. But among the positive things I’m addicted to, there are, of course, the negative ones, the ones I should really cut out of my life but don’t have any intention of.

Red Bull. It fluctuates between one a day and just one every once in awhile, but in the end, I know that shit is terrible for you, yet I drink it anyway. I look at it this way: I don’t smoke, I rarely drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t drink coffee, so why not let Red Bull be my one vice? Everyone else has them (I hope you’re reading this, mom. stop telling me to quit. I can’t. see: addict).

Shopping. I’m not buried in debt. Thankfully I don’t have any student loans to pay off or any seriously expensive bills- no car payments or mortgage payments here- but I am lumped in with pretty much everyone else in that sometimes I spend more than I should (usually on things I can’t afford, anyway. hello, credit cards. dad, if you’re reading this, don’t kill me, I’ve stopped asking you for money). Now that I do have more financial responsibility than in years passed, I am trying to be more frugal and watch what I spend my hard-earned dollars on. I’ve gone from maxing my credit cards on clothes and handbags to begrudgingly using them to buy food when I’ve spent all my money on bills. Wah. The former was more fun.

Sweets. Don’t get me wrong, my meals tend to be very healthy and modestly-portioned, but I can’t help snacking on deliciously sugary things like candies and chocolate. At least I balance it with exercise and proper sleep. Usually.

I’m starting to resent myself for a lack of will power, so I think I’m done now. Plus I’m running out of things that make sense to write about, and I’m tired of staring at my computer screen hoping something brilliant will pop into my mind. Because it won’t. All I really want to do now is chug a Red Bull and go shopping so I can buy something sweet.

    We share two addictions. And also, a lack of will power. But sweets and shopping are worth it!

    I’m addicted to diet coke. If I’m at home studying i just drink it. Addicted.

    • Ah, you’re a coke person. I’m in love with diet pepsi as of late, myself. I never used to drink soda on a regular basis but it seems in the last few months I can’t go without having one a day. I’m trying to stop though- Red Bull is bad enough without adding soda into the mix! 🙂

    Ok : bread, shopping, sex with my bf, cleaning, wordpress and running and running gear. ;-p

    • Love it! I wish I was more like you in that I was addicted to cleaning. I like things to be clean around the house, but I don’t like to do it myself, hehe (see: dirty bathroom). If you could only keep one thing on that list and you had to eliminate the others, which one would you keep? I can take a guess, but I could be wrong! 🙂

    All I have to say is….we have free will….and our mind is a powerful thing. You really CAN overcome an addiction. First…you have to decide if it is unhealthy or not.
    Choose to overcome it and do what you must.
    Chocolate..no..provided you counter it with healthy foods as you do. red bull…yes..nasty shit in here..so not good..sorry
    Being a shopaholic…mmm..yea…could be detrimental….to your pocket book. Being in debt is daunting.
    Sex….cardio for the heart is always good.. 🙂
    And that’s all I’m gonna say for now.

  5. Except for sweets, we share the same addiction. And I’m also a WordPress addict!

    What about your boyfriend?? 🙂

    • He will NEVER be on this list. My addiction to him is the best addiction I could ever ask for and I will never stop being addicted to him and his love. 🙂
