Question The hardest addiction you have ever given up?

What was an addiction that you have had that took for ever to break free from?

That thing a guy does when he's alone that involves tissues and lotion.

You know, crying whilst moisturizing your dry elbows.

I guess it would be smoking. It took me five years to finally quit, but when I actually did quit, it was instant; cold turkey.

I dont think Ive actually been addicted to any substance. Maybe mildly to some, but nothing serious.

I'm relating "hardest addiction" 2 different ways.

One way was when I quit ciggarettes the second time. I really really really really wanted one. I was aggitated all the time. The cravings I could handle. It was when there was nothing or the break I take every hour when I game that I wanted to smoke. It was just the inconvienence.

The second way wasn't wanting to do it but the withdrawls. To make a long story short I got a blood clot that went to my lungs. It was extemely painful. They gave me pain med through my I-V contantly then when I was out of the hospital I was on Loratabs. I was on them for like a month straight...everyday. At one point I knew I didn't need them but I figured what the hell. Then I quit. I went through major withdrawls. Shaking, sweats, insomnia, body aches, constipation, the works. That was hard not b/c of the giving it up part, but the reaction my body had when I did.

No addiction except nail biting, which I haven't given up.

opiates are pretty much the most addictive substances around.

I didn't find them hard to give up just the fact that the hell I went through after I did made it unbelievably difficult.
