What else are YOU Addicted to?

In a similar vein to the previous thread about TV series addictions, I thought I'd start a thread to find out what else YOU guys are addicted to.

There have been recent news articles on the following;

"Help for e-mailaholics in the grip of their inbox"


I was addicted to Starbucks but we recently moved offices away from the airport So what's a girl to do but find another addiction to replace the old one. My new addiction...EF...double

Highlighting random areas of my screen text in inverse video and then clicking another part of the screen to reset it. Repeat ad nauseam.

It drives other people mad when they trying to read something on your screen...

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

I am addicted to KFC!!!! I used to eat KFC once/twice a week. Call me weird but I have this habit of "I must eat KFC" whenever I visit a different country. They do taste slightly different. I was crushed when I found out that there were no KFCs in Switzerland!!!

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

I'm addicted to Diet Coke and I'm consuming at least 1.5L everyday!

I know I'd have to break this habbit sooner or later, but until then I'd be savouring every drop!

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

I used to love KFC until my last visit back home where I had an unfortunate bad piece of popcorn chicken that kinda left me grossed out...but I love their poutine!!

I am addicted to Clamato (almost done my reserves from Canada, luckily parents are coming in May with fresh supplies)
A Caesar a day was my motto!

I am also addicted to cottage cheese, green tea and chocolate milk. no, not at all once. lol

those are just my food addictions.

oh and water. I drink an obscene amount of water daily. probably a small ponds worth.

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

I'm addicted to moving threads, and since this thread seems to have nothing to do with TV/Internet/Telephone in Switzerland I'm afraid I'm going to have to move it somewhere more appropriate - like Off-Topic.

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

Coffee, Chocolate, and the Internet

Without at least one of these my day is just not complete!

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

Maybe one of you should suggest KFC to open a place in Switzerland.

Re: What else are YOU Addicted to?

Espresso and good dark chocolate, preferably together, mmmm caffine

Also single malt Scotch, though not really addicted because that would make me an alcoholic

Heroin, coke, motorcycles, and women with big boobs!

And food.
