Addictions

All sins tend to be addictive, and the terminal point of addiction is damnation. ~ W. H. Auden

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.~ Carl G. Jung

There are too many things that I'm addicted to at this present moment that I realize I may need a 12-step program to get me out of them. Remember when I gave up TV? Well it looks like I didn't really give it up, I just replaced my TV addiction with something else. Actually, a whole bunch of something else's. For the fact I have blogged about these addictions before, you would think that I should have noticed a trend. Oh well.
  1. My Computer: The seat of all my iniquity. It's here that I spend 2-3 hours reading blogs, writing blogs or just learning new and zanier things to put on my blog. It's here that I spend half my day surfing varied internet sites, writing, commenting and ruining my eyes.
  2. Cookies: I can't spend 10 hours on the computer without breaking at least once or twice for the cookie of my choice. This week, it's a mix between the Oreo's Peanut Butter Double Stuf and my personal all time favorite Walker's Shortbread.
  3. Ipod Mini/iTunes: If I'm cleaning the house, running errands or on the metro, the Mini accompanies me, plugged in my ears at all times. With 800+ songs at my fingertips...how giddy can a girl get? If I'm on the computer, then iTunes is my friend, playing the other 500 songs that didn't make it on the iPod.
  4. My Cellphone: A source of communication, a source of entertainment, a source of enlightenment. Even though my phone has been acting loopy as of late, I still spend hours on there daily talking to my friends, families and dates.

The thing about it is...I love my addictions!
