I Have An Addictive Personality

    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...

    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...

    I know I am a danger to myself

    because I can go from interested to obsessed in seconds! I think I'm addicted to not being addicted to something because I am always watching what I am doing!

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

    I faked a knee injury to get painkillers today.

    It worked without an issue. I am now high as a kite. Unfortunately, I only got enough for 2-3 highs, though I guess it's better than nothing right now. I honestly can't tell if I'm happy or dad about this..

    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...

    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.

    personality. When I like something A LOT, I am allll in.....mind, body, and soul. COMPLETELY obsessed without even realizing it... But.....I don't think I'm addicted to sex! Someone said they thought I was addicted to sex. I was like, no. But does it seem like I am, though?

    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...

    At least I think I do.

    Whenever I drink or get high I find myself thinking about it often once I'm sober and feeling like I'd do anything to do it again. I also get way too attached and obsessed with people I have feelings for. I don't know how to stop.

    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...
