We live in a world where we can buy gasoline, pop tarts, liquor, Snickers, and condoms in the same place, yet none one has came up with the concept of having a meeting called, “Lots of Addictions Anonymous.”

Sure you can go to alcoholics anonymous meetings. You can go to sex addiction, drug addiction, shopping addiction and gambling addiction meetings. The list really does go on and on. But what about people who are addicted to less life altering things? Why can’t we just combine a bunch of addictions, go to ONE meeting and call it a day?

This would be my opener,

Hi, I am 24 years old and I am addicted to

King of the Hill
Little Debbie’s Cosmic Brownies
Halo Reach
Grey’s Anatomy
Picking nail polish off as soon as it dries
The pizza from the restaurant next to my work
and Facebook

I could go through one twelve step program and be on my way. Except I may scratch cookies off the list. I really don’t want to give those up.

What are you addicted to?

For me it's coffee, double chocolate Klondike bars, laughter and Bruce. This is a fun blog.

Jess said...

LOL I think this is a fantastic idea!

I'm addicted to Facebook, Blogger, College Gameday, Coffee, Friends, Glee, Snickers and flip flops. Oh, and Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Brittany said...

blogging, glee, make up, and face book! I dont want to give up any of them! :))))

Meg O. said...

Yeah. Well..... then life would definitely be no fun, because isn't the point of those meetings to recover from those addictions? So.... I say to hell with that and CHEERS to less-than life altering addictions!

And sweet tea.

Roberta said...

I agree, and raise my glass to that, Meg O.!

I'm newly addicted to the following:

Go Girl Energy Drinks

I'm addicted to Beef Jerky, which is quite unfortunate, because living in germany this is probably one of the most difficult things to get hold of....meh...

Tress said...

OMG I have fellow WoW nerds here?!?! I'm so happy I could cry :)

You all are awesome. I am jealous of those who are able to drink coffee. Not so jealous of the lack of LD in Australia, nor the lack of Beef Jerky in Germany.

And Meg are right. Let's not try to fix these addictions, lets embrace them and pass them onto others, because some of these other addictions sound like much fun.

Homemade lasagna, blogging, 7 layer dip, naps...almost in that order!

I second Leroy Jethro Gibbs!
And I'm also addicted to coffee, surfing the web, watching cartoons (specifically the Simpsons and Futurama), mellowcreme pumpkins and listening to records!
