I’m so used to people saying there’s no such thing as addictive personalities, that I stopped talking about it. But yes – I’m keenly aware of my own tendency to latch on to things in an addictive manner. This includes prescriptions drugs, pot, wine, spending and of course food. I’ve had to force myself to give up a few things on occasion, for as long as a month, just to make sure that I could. This is long before I was aware that I might have ADD (and I’m going in for an assessment as well, in July).

What a relief it was to find this place and compare notes with others, to find out I wasn’t alone!!
