I don’t think I have an addictive personality per se.
I have never smoked a cigarette in my life (this is a topic for another post!), I usually don’t drink and the caffeine that I consume daily probably doesn’t count as an addictive amount either. I am convinced that the caffeine doesn’t even have an effect on me, because I can drink it in the evening and then go to bed 30 minutes later without a problem.
My “addictions” are on a more subtle level. There are certain things that I can never get enough of. One would be “stationary stuff”. I can spend hours at stationary stores and you can make me really happy with pretty paper, stickers, and journals. I have a whole collection of (empty) journals and I could always buy more. I think part of me would have liked to do something creative with my life.
I also think I am a mug-aholic. I LOVE mugs in all shapes and sizes. It’s highly important to me to drink my tea or coffee out of a beautiful mug. It just makes the coffee taste better, or something like that.
J doesn’t even drink coffee. Yet, we have 11 mugs in our cabinet. 2 of those are J’s. You do the math.
BTW, I am a firm believer that every beverage has its special glass or mug that it has to be drunken out of… milk does NOT go in glasses, but in a tumbler,
tea should go in a tea cup or glass cup
and coffee should either go in a coffee cup (with saucer) or mug.
Simple as that :)
Do you have any secret “addictions”?
