    I may have an addiction to caffeine.

    I'm always buying those terrible energy drinks. They don't even taste good or provide any hydration but I keep buying them! It's like I can't go to work without drinking something with caffeine.

    I Think I'm Addicted To Food

    I've always had a pretty odd relationship with food. Since childhood, I've loved it. More than I should've, and I've carried it on into adulthood. Literally, I don't know when to stop eating. Even if what I'm eating isn't tasty, I will eat it anyway. The act of eating just...

    Coca-cola. The soda is the only one

    for me. Sprite, Pepsi, orange soda could never compare. It started off innocent enough. A small cup at the bowling alley or at a party. Then ordering soda with every meal out. Suddenly I was drinking a coke every meal! In the mornings before school I would take a can and drink...

    My addiction is human imperfection

    and suffering. I always have to find the pain in others, their secrets and feelings. I want to be able to depend on someone through a promise of pain, fear, anger and a twisted love. Someone who can see the savage boy in me restrained by morals, love and hope.

    Pain Killers

    It started when I was thirteen. All my friends were doing it. It was the so called thing to do. I had been smoking weed since I was eleven already and was used to it. Weed wasn't an addiction. Just something that took my mind off of life. I felt safe in my own space, in my own...

    I'm addicted to oxytocin,

    the hormone that's released after having an ******. Whenever I'm stressed, tired, anxious, or having a bad day. Sex or ************ is my drug of choice. Some people say it's normal but it's getting to the point where it's just not healthy.
