View Full Version : What's your addiction?

20th June 2003, 03:09 PM
No, I don't mean drugs or alcohol or any of that kinda stuff...

What are you guys addicted to? I used to be completely addicted to Diablo II, then my parents banned me from viedo games :mad: . Then I got addicted to Starcraft once the ban was over, playing for 7+ hours a day, even on school days. After that, it was Runescape, and a little bit of pokemon (160+ on blue, 150+ on gold, 100+ on sapphire). Now I'm just plain addicted to my computer, I can't get off it. I'm always on, even when there's nothing to do, and I've even started to try to learn how to program them, but its really hard. Anyway, what have you guys been addicted to?

most of my addictions have died down.. ddr, neopets... my tpm one seems to be coming back, though =o I guess my biggest addiction right now would be AIM and the ummmm chat @_@;

Right now it seems to be comics, I've spent about $160 on comics and comic reprints in the last 4 months.

I think this is more at home in PCG *moves*

My addictions are: Ade, Chocolate and Neopets. I think I could live without anything else, but I couldn't quit those. I'm more addicted to those than even alcohol!

20th June 2003, 04:10 PM
Descent, Descent 2, Descent 3, Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8, SSBM, Medal of Honor, Two Towers, and Warcraft 3 are some of my more recent addictions. Right now, it would have to be Descent 3, though.

Hey! My thread was moved! :mad: It's in the right forum and everything, since its not a poll, club, or game. I was asking a legitamate question to which people could respond to and discuss. And why did one of you mods add "poll" to the title? At least tell me when you modify/move my posts/threads :mad:

20th June 2003, 05:20 PM
Consideing that your asking us questions, it is a poll. Hence movied from Misc to POLLS, Clubs, Games.

I am not currently addicted. No. Nothing. I am not playing GameCube every waking moment. No. Wind Waker. Never. I am NOT addicted. Thank you and good day fellow addictees.

20th June 2003, 05:35 PM
What I am currently addicted to:

Dr. Pepper, Super Smash Brothers Melee, Metroid Prime, Pokemon Sapphire (only because I don't have G/S or R/B, which are the better games, IMO), Anime, drawing anime, and TPM.

I used to be addicted to Starcraft, but that died down, along with Gauntlet: Dark Legacy.

While this could be a discussion, usually questions like this where people can give straight forward answers are classed as polls. For example of misc worthy discussions see the likes of the abortion and pre-marital sex topics.

Why not drugs and alcohol? :\ Oh well, if I can't includ my beloved alcoholic beverages:

I agree with you about Diablo 2! My friends and I all got it and for about a month we played from 12 midday to 5am only stopping to eat (even then we all ate at our computers). However, after completing it on every difficulty we were just burned out, we couldn't bare to look at it anymore! However, I'm going to dig out my copy soon and start playing again with a friend who missed out the last time.

Neopets - Anyone who knows about my bank account on this game wont be suprised by me admitting i'm addicted. Cute animals and silly games, c'mon what more could I want? :)

The Internet in general. Even when there's nothing going on, no one will talk to me, there's no new TPM posts and Neopets is down, I'm STILL trying to find something to do on here!

Jiggling hamster :)

20th June 2003, 07:16 PM
Red Dwarf (yeah, the old TV series!), M:TG and Pokémon TCG, Excel Saga, Cowboy Bebop, playing "filldeputa"(a Spanish classical card game, also known as "uno"), Shadowrun, Legend of the Five Rings, Vampire: The Masquerade, Kubrick movies, and repairing old consoles and computers. I think that's all...

20th June 2003, 07:37 PM
I was addicted to Diablo II, then my parents got mad and broke the CD and all other computer games :(.

Now, I'm addicted to caffeine and maybe TPM as well~ :o

I still play a lil' starcraft btw, but its so boring now~

I like to play the IRC on GSBOT but the server is having problems~

Neopets...well...it goes up and down and up and down... ie the addiction to it isn't stable. Some days I just hate to go there, and some days, its okay.

20th June 2003, 10:11 PM
AIM and Ummmm == addiction. Also I'm adicted to many video games. Those include: All the Final Fantasy games, some form of zelda, and Kingdom Hearts at the moment. Plus porn/hentai is another addiction :O. And I don't know.. umm.. Neopets? I stay on there a lot of my time ._.

My number one obsession?

Jekyll and Hyde. All over... Nyah! A while ago I bought the two-disc collection of music from it. Recenlty, I bought/received '97 cast recording, a vocal book of music from it, and the DVD of the musical, as well as Stevenson's book. :D Birthdays are luffly. Saw a nice theme with mine, er-hem. Also now have quite a collection of images from the internet (anyone know any good sites? *twitch* more...?) and made a backgroudn I'm using, and sing songs all time, and talk about, and sig is dedicated to it...
*twitch* ;)

Other obessions? Many. Interview With the Vampire currently strong. Lollipop Lust Kill and Our Lady Peace, Dream Theater, possibly Type O Negative. Matrix. :D And Harry Potter is growing again due to book...

I mean...

...I'm not obsessed with anything...

Do you even have to ask? I am addicted to Lord of the Rings all the way baby!!! My other addictions are Pokemon (duh!), packaged ramen noodles, Saint Tail manga, ER, aaaaaaand that's about it. My family is getting pretty pissed at me because of my LotR obsession. I'm afraid Mom may take away my scrapbook.

Nice poll,

The everlasting food that I am addicted to is crisps. At least, I eat 3 packets a day and that's very rare - I normally have at least four in a day. I know it's really unhealthy and there are other healthier addictions but it's the truth (*thinks it's impossible to be addicted to anything good in this world, like exercise*). I'm also addicted, in terms of television, to Big Brother in the UK. It's just over halfway through BB4 and like every year I can't seem to stop watching it - this is perhaps my biggest addiction.

In terms of video games, I'm not addicted and although I'm on AIM and in 'Ummmm' chat everyday, I wouldn't say I'm addicted because I'm not always very talkative in it...I'm a big lagger. But I'm addicted to the NET simply because my life is pretty boring and I don't really do anything else except come online to talk. *sigh*

Addictions? Harry Potter! It's been since 3 years ago, a little before the fourth book came out. Just been reading the latest one... Man, it rocks!!

24th June 2003, 08:33 PM

My Addictions: Video Games of nearly every kind. TPM

I really need help. I play Ruby until about 4 in the morning before I decide I'm too tired to play anymore.

My addictions are:

Caffene. I got addicted when I bought Order of the Phoenix.:yes: Me and my friends had this little competition going, whoever read the book quickest got to raid my fridge!

Order of the Phoenix. I've just finished it for the 2nd time.

Robinsons Fruit Shoot. I drink one when I wake up, one before I go to school, one at lunchtime, one when I get back from school, one while i'm doing my homework and one before I go to bed. That's.......6 Fruit Shoots a day! That cannot be healthy.

This thing here. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/celebdaq) I'm doing quite well on this, but it's so addictive I have to be dragged away from it.


25th June 2003, 01:41 PM
TPM, TPM, TPM, Big Bro 4 in UK, TPM, TPM, chocolate, TPM, TPM...


25th June 2003, 02:13 PM
I'm addicted to RPG games they're the ONLY games I play ask any of my friends because I only play these because they're great and Pokemon Sapphire that I have is one of the greatest.


26th June 2003, 01:15 AM
I am addicted to slurpees, the delicious icy-freeze drink that you can get only at your local 7-11 stores.

Remember, 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so if you're ever craving a late night snack do it right, do it 7-11... just a little closer to Heaven.

And watch out, don't make 7-11 angry, or you'll be dealin with the Sevs Hulk, one nasty green powered machine. Get your Hulk merchandise there today, including wicked cold changing slurpee cups.

Note: This is not a commercial nor an advertisement for 7-11... but you want to go there, go now!

I would have to say my addictions are DBZ, I haven't watched it in forever but still day dream about it. Alice in Chains is another of my addictions. Greatest band ever.
