My Addictions

I have two main addictions. One addiction costs me money and the other neither costs me money nor makes me money.

When I go to Dollar Tree, I spend ten dollars on things that I need, but I need to have my yahoo. I can not leave the store without my three pack of the delicious chocolate flavor drink. I admit it yahoo is my addiction. I do not even have to chill it. I take it home, remove the plastic wrapper, free the straw, then stab the top, and drink the chocolate fluid like a vampire.

I love writing and reading words. Words my other addiction. I can never get enough of words. I have to constantly do something with words. Writing and reading blogs, writing and reading articles from content sites like HubPages and Persona Paper, borrowing books from the library, purchasing books from my Kindle, and writing and publishing my books through CreateSpace. Everywhere, I go I see words, newsletters, emails, letters, signs messages, newspapers, magazines, and zines. All of that do not satisfy my hunger for words, for I go to sleep with stories to tell and poems to write.

I believe in life what keeps us alive is our small addictions, like my yahoo and word addictions. They help us get out of bed and aid us making it through the day or night. There must be one rule to these small addictions that rule is that must cause no or little harm to our physical or mental states of our bodies.

There are certainly worse addictions to have!

I use to be addicted to alcohol. I'm five years sober and I'm staying that way. Writing helps.

My addictions are reading and writing. I love books. I also like to play Farmville on Facebook. Have you ever played this game?
