Ever been addicted to something "non-addictive"?

For me it is Freecell. I cant get enough of the game. Too many long nights playing it, and being knackered whilst at work. It got to the point that I would hallucinate when I had friends who wore red or black, and I would imagine myself putting one on top of the other. I had to stop. Unfortunately, I'm not joking at all about this, it is very sad, but I would imagine my friends as cards.

Thanks for pointing out that this is not one of your jokes. It's hard to tell with you sometimes. That's why I make my jokes funny, it distinguishes them from normal conversation. You should try it sometimes. As far as your friends being cards, that's how I always pictured you. Square and flat and can't tell your top from your bottom.

I might be addicted to giving jimmy a hard time.

I would say math, but I think on this forum that wouldn't be considered "non-addictive".

I have been addicted to many things, at present the ‘drug’ of choice is a bamboo fishing pole. It has a furry semblance of mouse tied to the end of a string (I’m trying to catch a neighborhood cat but there don’t seem to be any here). It is a lovely piece of varnished stick with wonderful texture…help….

Is there such a thing as a non-addictive addiction? Gamblers Anonymous would call gambling addictive, so by definition if you become addicted to something non-addictive doesn't it therefore become addictive, losing its heretofore mentioned non-addictive status? You know, like the one time whats his name went to that place we were talking about. l;kadsj;oifehneruoiuehhbaj -GIVE ME BACK MY BRAIN.
Damn, ever start typing something and completely lose your train of thought? or even why you were typing in the first place.?

I really like MSN games, and Alchemy is one of my favorites. I also liked Mummy Maze, before they took it away. :grumpy: Fortunately, I downloaded the trial version, and I have 15 games left. Gotta use them sparingly.... :frown:
