I was just wondering which type had the biggest chance of becoming addicted. And not just to drugs, but to habits and even people. I'm going to use the Enneagram since that is what I'm most familiar with when it comes to addictions but I'm more interested in MBTI for this since I know nothing about addictions relating to those types.
On the enneagram I'm a 4w5, and self-indulgence is definitely my middle name. Up until the last like 5 months I've been wandering around in an alcoholic haze following a break up with a girl.
It's just that I felt like alcohol was a way to make me feel happy just for a little bit, though when I finally got a drink it just made me feel worse. Whenever the thought of getting drunk got into my head, this sort of animalistic drive would kick in and I would do anything to get that way. When I woke up in the morning on the floor or in a puddle of my own urine that's when I finally would regret what I had become. But the next night I would need to drink again. Depression deepened until I decided if I didn't stop I would kill myself, either from the drinking or I just wouldn't be able to handle the guilt anymore and find some other way to get rid of myself.
Anyway enough with that cheerful story, anyone else got any addiction stories?
