Let's Discuss (3): Addictions (My Confession to You All)

Hi Guys!!
This week on Let's Discuss I need to confess something. I've been dealing with a problem and well this is my story.

I need to confess something. It’s hard for me to say this, but I think it’s time. For the past 15 years (ever since I was three) I have been dealing with a problem. I am addicted to reading. I know what you’re thinking, reading isn't bad! It’s a better addiction than drugs or anything else!

But here is my dilemma over the past 15 years my addiction has had many side effects for which you will have to decide whether good or bad…

I’ve been dealing with an increasing case of insomnia. Staying up to the wee hours of the night reading one, two, sometimes three books I have forgotten what sleep is. -> I’m beginning to look like a person addicted to coffee that is having withdrawals. I get all the shakes, the quivers, the spasms, and the increased amount of yawning and droopiness.

And it has done anything but wonders for my love life. 15 years of living in a world of fictional characters, that too the amazing men that you meet in books seriously has raised my expectations. *Woops* you’ve got Rochester, Darcy, Daemon, Jace, Will, and well the list goes on! The amount of fictional guys that I have dibs one would mean that I’m in a polygamist relationship…. WHAT?! O.o

Along with my love life, my social life slowly diminishes as well. I spend my time hidden behind my books, and when I go out I have a book with me at all times. There may be a conversation going on, but all I hear are the characters conversing while I read the book. I’M NOT LIVING IN REALITY!!


My addiction has gotten to the point that I would read while eating, while exercising, and while sitting in the car…thank god I don’t drive and read.

I honestly think that my life is connected to books, if you take those away, I would disappear as well. But sadly I am one to get hooked onto things fast. I am not only addicted to reading, I’m also addicted to eating, the dark hole which is youtube, and crafting. WHAT AM I DOING WITH MYSELF?!?!?!

So that’s my story. I have a problem, I admit it, but I am on a path to improve myself! To read a little less, so I actually do something with my life. So have y’all dealt with an “extreme passion” aka addiction, and if so what is it? Leave in the comments below, I would love know!

Bye Guys!
