    I love the thrill of the win and painfully aware of the consequences of the loss. I also love the forbidden fruit of lust however cannot fathom the loss of my true love... I love the taste of whiskey on my lips and the feeling of smoke leaving my body... but I don't wanna...

    I have been a heroin addict

    for 7 years straight, I stopped using 7 days ago, started to go to NA meetings, and it is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORLD. I hope they can help me learn how to even live sober.

    The fact that I'm filling this out speaks to my

    compulsiveness (touch nose, rub ear). There are some things that I'd love (touch nose, rub ear) to stop, but just can't.

    I hate it. I've been a smoker

    since I was 13. I started smoking weed when I was 14 then traded that addiction for alcohol when I was 17. I've been drinking almost every day since. I was extremely addicted to Adderall from when I was 15 to when I was 20. I've been cutting and burning myself on and off since I...

    Yeahhhhh.... It's a horrible quality about me.

    I find I get addicted to anything and everything so fast. From small things to like biting my nails and caffeine to larger things like nicotine and alcohol. Like when I first smoke I was hooked and couldn't stop and drinking every time I drink since I first ever drank I was...

    :( Zero Moderation!!

    Hello everyone. My name is Jake and I'm a 23 year old Audio/Video student. I long for moderation in life, but cannot seem to break my living habits. I used to smoke marijuana with my cigarettes, and I had a very hard time stopping for probation after a horrible accident I was in...

    But I've never been addicted to drugs!

    lol But I tend to get addicted to certain things, I let it consume me. My husband, bless his heart, always tries to remind me to keep things in balance. I tend to get single-minded about things... and I just want to explore all there is in that... and then other important...

    Last night, I watched a movie called A Scanner

    Darkly. As I watched, I got drunk by myself. When the movie was over I realize that I was just like the people in the movie. Yes, they were taking a lot harsher kind of the drug, but I've let myself go too far with alcohol and weed. I want to be clean. I wish I could get up...

    Why I Never

    I never tried hard drugs. I figured that with my addictive personality..that I would get hooked right away. Which I don't need. I have enough crap I'm "addicted" to....sex, gambling, food. I sure as hell don't need something that could potentially kill me AND what makes you...

    I've won two of them this month. I've been pretty blessed this month and I'm grateful for that. Well, I don't know if I'm ever gonna stop because I just love the feelings of winning something and who doesn't like getting free stuffs?

    I was an alcoholic in the past.

    I don't necessarily consider myself a recovered alcoholic because I can have the occasional drink and control myself, unlike before. I got my depression treated and it's been all good. I was also really addicted to weed for years...and tried almost every drug, luckily only a few...

    The energy drinks are calling my name again.

    I want them so badly. They make me mellow out and not think about all my stupid problems. I want to be free again. I want to feel some sort of happiness again. I don't care if it doesn't last long but it's worth it.

    With that being said,

    Strange Urge

    EP, as I understand it, is a tool people use to cope with loss. Perhaps that's why I'm always on here. It's strange, I'm sitting here out by the balcony and all I can think about is the craziest urge to just jump over, just to imagine what it's like even for a split second to be...

    I have always had an addictive personality.

    However, I think in some cases it's better described as "obsessive" rather than addictive. I'm either all in, or not at all. It's my achilles heel. For periods of time I become immersed in one thing, and shut out everything else. This trait applies to every single aspect of my...

    Addiction runs in my family,

    in one form or another – typically many forms at once. On my bio mother's side, every person is addicted to many somethings. It was such a natural part of their lives, they didn't see anything wrong with sharing it all with their children. Before I was 11, I'd had alcohol...
