Daily Prompt: Can’t Get Enough
by michelle w. on October 9, 2013
Have you ever been addicted to anything, or worried that you were? Have you ever spent too much time and effort on something that was a distraction from your real goals? Tell us about it.
I have had several addictions in my life, nothing hard core, just plain everyday stuff. I have a sweet addiction, especially chocolate. I had a long, around 20 years, addiction to bubble gum and blowing bubbles. I am a music addict. I was a workaholic. I have OCD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and am addicted to certain things like checking my windows and doors, even in a car, to make sure they are locked; Order-all my canned goods have to be in a certain place and order; Sticking to a routine every day, and when something happens out of my routine, I fall apart, completely lose it, and have to really focus to get back to my routine or suffer the consequences for several days.
The only really bad addiction I have is my on-again, off-again affair with cigarettes. Yes, I am a nicotine addict. I’m also a caffeine addict and love my coffee.
The biggest addiction of all, though, is my addiction to my grandchildren. I have to see them or hear their voices at least once a week or I get really depressed. They are my sunshine. They are my life.
