Fascinating. Everyone has something, I guess. I tend not to do things addictively or even repeatedly in any recognizable pattern, simply because I fear being cornered by them. I don't like having to do something. My preference is choice. So the moment I feel myself becoming dependent, I take time out to interrupt the continuum. That way I feel I have choice and free will. I don't believe this is rooted in judgement, though, of myself or others, just a personal need, and a deep one at that, to make my own path even as I'm treading on it. Your soul is not addicted to nictoine or caffeine, and sometimes these comfort substances are even good for the soul if they help you get through the day a little more easily.
