Powerful Addictions

I am about to discuss with the whole wide world of interneting some of my biggest addictions.
I feel as though IF I speak of the addictions and their powers outloud, I may be able to loosen the grip of these...things...that have me clamped in their powerful jaws.

I am addicted...
To Tetris.
It's terrible. It's bad enough to where I'll be laying in bed and my fingers twitch, moving themselves as though the small black keys of the keyboard are still below them, willing themselves to clicked. What makes me angry regarding the whole situation is that on Facebook my scores have been beaten. It's a little upsetting. I have a few days before my new school term begins and so my vigor for overtaking my opponents has been renewed with overwhelming strength. I will be victorious.

I have an obsession...
With Sudoku. This situation is grave. Every time I am in a check out lane, or in a magazine/book aisle I am overwhelmed to buy Sudoku books. Nevermind that I have more than enough Sudoku books to satisfy my puzzle mania for a long while- I need more. In fact, my main goal today is to buy one.

I have a dependence...
On Blogging. Seriously. It's like a writing drug has been slipped into my drink. The compulsion to write everyday is becomming increasingly harder to deny. What is it about words that I find so powerful? They cannot be silenced. It's not only important to write the words, it's of equal importance that the words have value.

I have a compulsion...
To eat chocolate. My decision on chocolate has not been made lightly. The new motto that I have adopted is, "A piece of chocolate a day keeps the insanity away." It has been working. Obviously a little insanity has creeped in, but that's to be expected.

Some things cannot be helped.

Yes, some things really can't be helped. It was a couple years ago that I truly began to embrace my identity as a woman and all that that involves - namely, eating chocolate, especially of the dark variety. I've come to see it as expected and appropriate. Is there any other way of looking at it?
