    Runescape *sigh* I wasted my childhood.. That curse is the main reason why I stay away from stuff like wow...I have no idea whether I'll like it or not I'm just too scared of getting hooked as a wow zombie and destroying my social life.

    In first year at uni I got into it, and very quickly I got very addicted. I would even wake up early to harvest crops, plan socialising around harvesting my trees. I even bought farm cash with real money.
    Thankfully one day I just realised it was a joke. They make it very difficult to play without pumping your own real money in. There was quest upon quest, and they were extremely demanding and time consuming.
    So I quit, and haven't looked back. Thank heavens.

    Football Manager is addictive. Always has been for me. In real life, gambling? If I pop in to Betfred to have a couple of quid on football, then roulette attracts me, etc

    I'm not badly addicted to anything though. Nothing serious anyway.

    I became addicted to painkillers after having to take 1600mg of ibuprofen and 600mg paracetamol for a few month by prescription. After I was done taking those, I just couldn't handle the slightest headache unless I took at least 600mg of ibuprofen to it. This went on for a year until I realised the whole deal and quit immediately. First week was hard, the pain was just unbearable. Nowadays I tend to sleep the headache off rather than taking a pill - I'll only take one if I can't sleep without it.
    Try drinking a lot of water, about 2 litres a day
    It works wonders on headaches! you'll see the results after a few days

    Probably nothing like I a proper addiction, but I'm an insane period eater: find new food item I enjoy, and eat nothing else for a couple of weeks. Avocados, nuts, quark, Greek yogurt...

    Gaming, because I was deprived of it as a child and still am really. So I feel I have to make up for the lost times. Nothing serious tho, just the closest thing I could think of.

    Coca Cola, Coffee, Red Bull, Tea!

    I think its fair to say I'm a caffeine addict!

    However, I can go for days without having any, which sort of goes against the idea of an addiction. But then suddenly I just get a craving for it, AND THEN I CAN'T STOP!

    Runescape. I wouldn't rest until Elvarg was dead and I was passing my days fishing lobsters :P
    Crash Bandicoot. Who wouldn't be?
    Fantastically contrived and surreal plot and character development.
    Naan bread.
    The Cha Cha Slide (yes, really)

    I could think of more but I need to go procrastinate now :P

    I'm increasingly addicted to porn.

    But watching porn in exponentially increasing amounts is just what most people would do if they'd gone 6 years without even going further than hugging a female friend... FML.
