I have an addictive personality and I know it. I know that once I fixate on something, I obsess over it for a long time until I run it through my system. Sometimes it only takes a few hours, other times it takes days. Right now I’m on a Criminal Minds fix and spend every free moment inhaling information and reading fanfiction.
And I come from a line of addicting personalities. I have a history of mental illness, alcoholism and substance abuse from both sides of my family. And the thought of becoming like some of my family members terrifies me, so I stay away from cigarettes, alcohol and anything else that could go very bad. I stick to chocolate and other safer options.
