I chose that option because of the everyday usage of the term. However, I discovered, I really don't have one, nor am I truly an obsessive compulsive. These are actual disorders & the terms have become used casually to mean something else, something less than a disorder, IMO. What I do have is a perfectionist personality that commonly gets mislabeled & is also a pain in the ass to deal with!
A bit I guess, but, personally, I don't think anyone can completely say no. There has to be at least one thing that a person does too much of, even if it's healthy. For instance, exercise. I can definitely go overboard with it once I get started. Is it a bad thing? No. Still addictive though.
Do you have an addictive personality? Not just for example cigs, drugs, alcohol things of that sort. I mean with anything?
I could probably fall under yes! However, I've never really knew exactly what an "addictive personality" meant. I mean, obviously it means you're easily addicted to things, but I'm not totally sure when it comes to me. I guess so though because I have a few addictions. In a way, I sometimes think everybody (probably just most people) have their "things" that get them through, that help them do what they have to do whether it's a smoke or a drink or the daily Dr. Pepper or Kit Kat (several of these apply to me, but I'm not out of control with my habits like chocolate or Dr. Pepper.) I know how to limit and have no problem doing it, at all, but I definitely don't go a day without a Dr. Pepper or smoke. Coffee too.
Yes. Mostly to food. Addictions also run in my family (everything from drugs to alcohol to soap operas), but everyone generally has one or two main addictions that override their life and/or they have to stand vigilant against to survive.
One just recently killed my uncle ... his lifelong alcoholism finally caught up with him. He was 56. Way too young. Same thing happened to my paternal grandfather at age 49.
Yes. When I was young it was candy, then for a couple of years it was the gym/running, then it was sex, then alcohol (I dropped it over 5 months ago), and now it's our sex life and sex toys. I'm alright with my current addiction. It doesn't hurt anyone, it's safe, and EF helps distract me from things (other alcoholic family members) that would normally send me over the edge and drink. Oh, and I drink about a pot of coffee a day and smoke cigarettes.
*This the most revealing thing about myself, I've ever posted.
Have few additions from lying, seeking other Woman outside of Relationship. Don't get me wrong, I love this Woman and head over heels for her! I would do anything for her, but have an addictions that is uncontrollable. Also have an addiction watching her squirt, turns me on!
Unfortunately yes, I have an addictive personality. Most things I'm addicted to aren't good for me, but nothing that is too bad to really worry about except for cigarettes. It's funny how I hate that I smoke, yet it's so hard to put them down and permanently walk away.
