    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.

    O and blems... been clean for a couple of months tho and feeling great apart from the occasional crave...it's getting harder by the minute... somebody kill me please and end it all!!!!

    Farmville.
    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.
    Information.
    Naan bread.
    Porridge.
    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.
