Top Ten Most Addictive Things In Life

I was just thinking about The TopTens and then I thought some more...and then I realised I think about it much too often! Even this list is born from my addiction to it! What are my fellow TopTenners' addictions? Doesn't matter how silly it sounds, if you feel you'd be lost without it, add it to the list.

The Top Ten

1 Music

The only side effects for me is obsession!
- TheDuttyGyal

Thankfully, music is perhaps the only item on this list with no negative side effects! - ColdTurkey

Yup, I’m addicted - Camaro6

I'm in total agreement. The bigger the variety of genres you listen to the more you get addicted because then you have a song to suit whatever mood you're in somewhere in your playlist - Danielsun182

4 Food

I cannot stay away from beef. - HoldenFanatic

Why else would being healthy be so hard - blackflower

I love trying diffrent foods. Thumbs up if your a foodie

I've got this problem.
Ever since I was born, I eat every day.
Often as much as three times, plus snacks.
I try to stop, but my stomach hurts and I just end up raiding the fridge.
1 like = one prayer.

... What am I doing with my life.
90% of it is sarcasm. - Flamesofsilver

8 Anime

I love anime a lot and can't stop watching it!

Anime is the cocaine of television. Once you start watching, you can't stop. - Atham

I can't stop watching it and I'm starting to expect sweat drops from people

Get a life! How is it enjoyable to watch animated people (awful animations) scream at each other. It feels like they have bad acting even though it's a cartoon

9 Television

For some reason I still watch cartoons...

Teen titans go is a number nine. - mathguy37

Television is one of the best source for entertainment and this option must have been supported by a number of people as television is easily affordable by a large Ravi Kumar Tahlan

I love watching Ink Master, Shark tank, the Rap Game, and a bunch of other shows I forgot about

10 Drugs

Drugs, one of the most if not, most addictive substances in life. Once taken, you'll never stop by the overwhelming temptations of taking drugs; it will control your life. Here's a well known but often forgotten reminder: Don't consume drugs, in all circumstances. - illusion

I had the unfortunate experience of being an addict... It controls you all you morals you grew up with gone in the blink of an eye... You loose your freedom.. Anything that can take away morals and freedom that you've always had has to be the most addicting thing

I feel serious sympathy for addicts. You're desperate for something that kills you, and strips you of all your humanity. It's heartbreaking to watch someone fall into the depths of drug abuse. Of course, I will never take any. - keycha1n

Not like I am going to take some. - Imagine-Thor-Here

11 Self Harm

To everyone saying this is "edgy," just listen for a sec. There are definitely edgy emo people out there doing this for attention, but not everyone who cuts falls under this category. Some do it because it's a way to diffuse all their anger and anxiety in a way. However, it's a temporary and harmful solution to a bigger problem, and it's difficult to stop once you start. So it's definitely addicting for the people who do it. - Atham

This is really sad to see. I'm really sorry if you've ever been through this. - Rocko

Self Harm is NOT addictive!

12 Books

While I love music (Can't seem to go a day without my Blues fix) I've realised I must be addicted to books. I buy them (Yes, real actual books, from bookshops) faster than I can read them. I need to pick up a novel and read every day, otherwise I don't feel whole. I panic when I'm halfway through a novel, worrying that I don't have another fresh book to devour when I've finished the one I'm reading, even though I have about 10 novels still waiting to be read. I can't help it; I dread to think on what I spend on books in six months. They're just so special: the feel of them; the fresh-smelling newness of them... my book appetite is insatiable! I need them in my life; I need to have them around me; I need to have a book within reach. Yes, I guess it's an addiction, but at least I'm not hurting myself or anyone else with it. It's probably the greatest and safest addiction to have. - Britgirl

Totally. LOVE all kinds of books

Yes. Stuff like captain underpants,bad kitty and my weird school. - mathguy37

Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate but since I'm done with all the books, I'm not addicted to them anymore - venomouskillingmachine

A powerful,binding force I say - Kevinsidis

19 Breathing

It's my strange addiction

Recently went rehab because it got so bad. I was breathing at least 15 times a day glad I am clean now - Morefunthanfun

So who done this? This seems pretty dumb because you do it all the time so this would be number one on a list called things you do all the time - mathguy37

Addiction- a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities.

Does breathing prevent you from living your daily life?
Does breathing impose adverse consequences?

Breathing is more of a state of dependence than addiction.

21 Money

So true because we all need it and want it - Curti2594

Obviously, because our life would be terrible without it. - Powerfulgirl10

Mr. Krabs just shows you how addictive this is

22 Tattoos

I hate tattoos this should be on number one on worst body things and stuff about your body - mathguy37

Ugh so gross it's like "Why don't I put a needle in my arm so I can have a tattoo of something ugly that last forever? " It's fine if you just have some initials on your wrist but anything further than that is gross.

Tattoos are very addictive. I've got them all over my arms and back. But agree; tattoos on females makes them look butch. Not a very sexy look at all.

I know some people who debate about having one done and a year later? Absolutely smothered in this awful "artwork". It looks dreadful on women too! - Britgirl

37 Nail Biting

I was going to scroll through all the contenders but I have to vote for this one because I started biting my nails when I was six and have continued for 12 years. Though I've tried time and time again to terminate this embarrassingly addictive habit, I've given up and now just use my nail to see how stressed I am. The more stress, the shorter the nail.

This is VERY addictive! I know a lot of people who bite their nails. Even my teacher bites her nails!

I do this. Sometimes it's uncontrollable. - Powerfulgirl10

This show can be really funny at times
