    I have an Ebay addiction. I get everything there. If I need shampoo I get it there. If I want clothes, I get it there. I just love buying things for a bargain that I stay stuck on there! Plus I hate going to stores so, it's actually perfect for me. Help!!!

    it seems we don't like to deny ourselves much huh...but...i don't think we like control either so...i could see it going either way.

    i personally was addicted to cigarettes and still miss smoking...but couldn't stand that i needed to...so i've always stayed away from everything else that i consider to be addictive.

    I know, maybe we're one of the only types who breaks addictions because they are too repetitive and routine . I don't like having addictions either. They feel like things you have to do and have no choice in. I don't even have a caffeine addiction.

    I'd say I do have an addictive personality. Nicotine as an example. I try to fight it but it's very hard.

    Keep real busy for a 3 to 4 days and you will see how quick you drop it. I used to smoke too but one day I had really busy finals and didn't hang with anyone or buy a pack for two weeks.

    I tried smoking a couple of times after that, but every time I did it, I felt real wierd (like kinda ill/spacey). Now I will smoke a ciggy with the guys once in a blue moon but willl usually feel like shit when I do it (physically) so I don't do it that often.

    Nicotine is universally addictive. No relation to "personality."

    I smoke cigars just because I think I look sexy as hell when I do.

    Then there are addictions to shopping, people, sex, food.

    I tend to agree that the idea of a personality being "addictive" is a fallacy, but certainly most undeveloped personality types under stress could be prone to the short-cut of mood-altering chemicals.

    I would guess the impulsive types could be more prone. Intelligence certainly isn't a factor.

    addictive personality is a hereditary trait that can also happen over a long time exposed and participating in addictive substances.
