Addictions

Everyone is talking about their addictions, so I thought I would talk about mine. Now granted my addictions have nothing to do with drugs (thankfully), but they are still addictions none the less. So here goes my list. First, you already know about my addiction to bookstores and my inability to leave one without buying yet another book. You already know about my addiction to fatty foods. Who isn’t right? And you already know about my addiction to men who are all wrong for me — so maybe it’s not a bad thing that I’m single. But you don’t know about my current addiction to Ebay. Now granted I haven’t really purchased anything, in fact I’ve sold quite a few items, but what I have done lately is spend waste countless hours cruising the site looking for things I don’t need. Goodness, what is wrong with me? I know there is a major void in my life but the last thing I need is more crap to fill up my apartment. Plus, I know that buying more stuff is only a temporary high. Besides, I’d really like to downsize and get rid of the clutter, yet I never seem to be able to come around to doing so. Instead I just collect more and more stuff. Maybe it’s time for an intervention. Did I mention that I started going to live auctions? I’m suppose to be looking for a dining room table with chairs, yet I get caught up in the bidding process and buy other stuff I don’t need. Mon Dieu! Maybe someone will recommend me for a TV Show like Mission: Organization. Most things are neat and orderly in my apartment, but I’ve got way too much stuff I don’t need. I need to start purging.

  1. I think I’m addicted to the Internet. It would actually take conscious thought for me to go a day without checking my email.
    The reason I’m hooked on it is because of the interactivity. I get to talk with people, connect. It’s not surprising to me. I grew up an only child and cried when it was time for my friends to go home. Thankfully, I don’t cry when my friends leave. However I still feel that need to reach out. I’m never the one to say goodbye first.
    Oh, my latest addiction is Pat’s pizza. That’s some GOOD eatin’!

  2. So maybe you should look at it in a different light. There are people out there that make a very good living going to auctions and buying things for Other People. If there is a void, fill it with what you like to do!

  3. I am addicted to the internet, crossword puzzles and blog reading.

  4. i was totally addicted auctions about 3 years ago. i did good on gifts last december too. the good thing is i lost my links and have no idea where i use to go. thank gawd.

  5. I do a little Christmas Shopping each year. But in my week off work I have definately had too much free time on my hands and have found “things for the house” that I want.
    Currently bidding on a Art Deco Fire screen. keeping the addiction in check…. (i hope)

  6. All this buying is going to make it hard for you to make the move the London. Why are you sabotaging yourself? Chew on that for a few hours.
