How many of you have other addictions?

Post by Zsababy »

Just thinking about the addiction aspects of limerance & how we can be possibly wired (or rewired by trauma) for addiction.

I'm a compulsive spender & I do drink a bit much.

I'm trying to go on a shopping diet & my LO is releasing a really cool-looking LP with signed reprints of his art. Double addiction whammy! Two highs in one.

Any other addicts, of any kind, in the house? Do you find that you switch addictions?

I’m definitely addcited to online shopping. Most of the stuff I’m buying I don’t even wear or use. After I open the package I lose all the excitiment and „need” to buy something again. It’s been going on for years.

Gambling. Not fun.

Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I think it's my own damn fault.

Yeah, been teetering on the edge of alcoholism for quite some time now. Food. Sweets. Sour. Spicy. Also have a tendency of becoming addicted to random subjects or hobbies and that's been an ongoing factor in my life.

If you haven't already, check out Allen Carr's Easy Way To Quit Sugar. Lots of good info, didn't work for me at the time but the quit smoking one did over 30yrs ago. Cold turkey with no withdrawal symptoms (he explains well why it's actually easy!).
I have lost just over 82 lbs by giving up sugar over the last 6 mths. My rule of thumb is if it's more than 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams, it's a no go for me.

As for addictions. Can't say I've got any other than L.Net!!!!!

Binge eating was my first addiction and it first showed up when I was a kid. Then limerence then spending and now it's mostly a mix of food and limerence.
