Warning: The following article contains some silly content. *lowers voice* Viewer discretion is advised.

Addiction. What is addiction? Well according to dictionary.com it's:

The state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.

Too many big words! Break it down to: Something you can't stop doing/taking. You hear addiction and you think of drugs and alcohol right? But there's other addictions too.

If there's one thing I hate, it's negativity! Sometimes Mr. Addiction attracts too much negative vibes for one girl to handle! So I bring you . . . The Ultimate Silly List of Mr. Addiction!

Hershey Kisses

I am ADDICTED to Hershey's Kisses. I have this huge stash underneath my sink that I eat nonstop. I have at least 30 kisses a day! Thank goodness for working out! Hershey Kisses obviously are full of chocolate and sugar and our bodies LOVE sugar so it keeps us wanting more and more. Thanks a lot Mr. Addiction.

Hand Games/Snaps

My friend is highly addicted to snapping her hands or rubbing them together to make strange noises. It's very loud but it's almost like a chain reaction. She does it, you do it and soon enough the rest of the school is doing it! She usually snaps her hand and presses her palm of her other hand on top. It's distracting. Thanks a lot Mr. Addiction.

Computers and Social Networking

Facebook, Twitter and Myspace! Everyone who has one has got to be addicted! I mean come on. Games like Farmville and Cafe World? How can you stay away?. There's so much controversy using these social networking sites, so if you do go on a social network, be extra careful. Computers are also a big addiction in today's world. How can you stay away from all those neat features? Thanks a lot Mr. Addiction


Ah, the wonderful world of music! Music is an escape for everyone. Some people listen to music 24/7, others listen to music when they have life problems and others listen for fun and dancing. One way or another we're all addicted to that wonderful sound that either we make ourselves or come out of the speakers. Thanks a lot Mr. Addiction.


Not many people are addicted to TV, but there are some! People who are addicted to television watch it everyday, all day (in worse cases) and can memorize commercials! (trust me I've seen it) Be careful what you watch on TV. You should ask an adult if you could watch a specific movie or show because it may be inappropriate. Thanks a lot Mr. Addiction

Now it's your turn! What whacky thing are you addicted too?


Editor's Note: Thank you Watermel8 for this subject. All laughing aside, addiction is a serious subject and should not be taken lightly. If you are suffering from a serious form of addiction, please reach out to someone you can trust like a parent, teacher or guidance counselor.
