For the longest time, I didn't think I had an addictive personality. I really never had a burning hankering for caffeine when I stopped drinking Coke, and attachment to anything has always been spotty at best. But I've found my addiction. Well, I found it before. I've recognized my addiction.
For me, reading is addictive. It's especially addictive when it's a book I like. I'll read it again and again. And again. People wonder how I have time to read. I wonder how they have time not to read. My parents have a picture of me in “the position”: 1 or 2 a.m., book open next to me on the bed, me asleep and drooling on the pillow. This is because I read all the time.
I even get a bit cross if interrupted during a favorite part.
