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

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

Surely the addiction with no side effects - Aafeen

Music is my #1 Passion if I didn't have it I'd be... I don't know where because the idea of No Music is Terrifying! - Curti2594

I guess you could say I’m obsessed with music, and that’s because I am! - saturatedsunrise

2 The Internet

No. I never touch the internet. Don't even know what it is. - Britgirl

Haha! Wow! First time I've been called a nerd! I kind of like. Thank you, Sir / Madam! - Britgirl

I'm afraid of turning into an internet junkie. Once on its hard to do anything else.

I get bored without it

4 Food

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

I love Italian food

Why else would being healthy be so hard - blackflower

5 Electronic Devices

Easy to get addicted to this thing

I cannot even begin to tell you how many hours of my life I have wasted on my devices. - RockFashionista

So addicting I once stayed up at 3am just playing with my iPod - Neonco31

I love this I have a 5. - mathguy37

6 Video Games

Because I am a huge PlayStation fan. - DunnaNunnaBatman

This list is kinda dumb because number one wouldn't be would be crack cocaine. I have only heard the stories of junkies lives and it sounds really bad. Music is great but you don't need music, however crack addicts need crack and will even kill for it, no one would kill for music

Talking from Experience indeed Video Games are Addicting mainly cause it's Fun - Curti2594

Well, I am obsessed with Overwatch. - saturatedsunrise

I like science, it's interesting and cool. - Lunala

8 Anime

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

I actually have a fear of anime, I don't know why, but the art design scares me...

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

9 Self Harm

It is very addicting as when you start cutting it is very difficult to stop and it leaves life long scars. But it gives a temporary relief. Don't ever judge a person who self harms as they might have told you a reason that is not worth self harming but the person may be struggling, so always be there for them even if they need a shoulder to cry on and never tell them to just stop as it so much harder.

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

Please everyone here, get help! I'm so touched by this, as someone very close to me once cut herself... There are many people that care, you are never alone - Ned964

I can barely make it a day without cutting. The longest I’ve gone is 3 days.

10 Television

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

I'm so addicted to T.V., especially Nickelodeon (not modern Nick.) - Powerfulgirl10

Teen titans go is a number nine. - mathguy37

The Contenders

11 Drugs

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

From what I've heard and seen drugs

20 Breathing

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.

I really need to see a doctor I can't stop breathing - FrankP

Yes... I became addicted at birth. I can't stop! - Britgirl

It's my strange addiction

29 School

School is hell on earth

Because being with your friends and learning if fun! - Powerfulgirl10

30 Tattoos

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

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

33 Five Nights At Freddy's

I sleep every night - but once you get addicted, you can't help yourself. Sometimes I do it in bed, sometimes I do it at the work desk, sometimes on the train home.
Send help. - Rocko

You do it for hours so why is this a thing to do - mathguy37

Sleep is life

35 Grand Theft Auto

Yes - venomouskillingmachine

36 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
