You hear people talking about addictive personalities. I don’t know if that’s a real, medically recognized “thing” but I do know that I hear the phrase fairly often. I’ve never thought of myself as someone with an addictive personality, but just this morning I started to wonder. You see, most days I check in here at the ‘ole blog (it’s been around since June) hoping to see that lots of people have surfed their way over to read my gems of wit and wisdom. Most days that doesn’t happen. Still, I find that checking out the blog stats is sort of a ritual for me. It dawned on me that it’s become a habit, and a pressing one at that.
So the big question rattling around in my brain, is whether I’m prone to “addictions” or not. I’m not drug or alcohol addicted. I’m not addicted to tobacco or adrenaline inducing activities (quite the opposite, I’m kind of a ‘fraidy cat). I do have this thing with food, though. Is it an addiction? I’m not sure, but maybe I need to learn more about it. I tend to think not. Just like this blogging thing, I think it’s more of a zealous interest than an addiction. Now if we could only get some more folks over hear to read and follow this blog, I would have something to really get zealous about!

I think there are a lot of people with food addictions. I would say at some point my body has probably been addicted to carbs/sugar. I think the fast-food world we live in tends to create “food junkies”, so to speak. I try now to “eat to live”, as opposed to “living to eat”.

I do find that the more sugary foods I eat, the more I crave them. Maybe it is a true addiction.
