I know I have an addictive personality. Over the years I've struggled with comfort eating, tv addiction, and computer addiction. The tv and computer addiction were probably a way to zone out all the stress and yelling around me. In the last few years the stress has made me want to start drinking. I've never drank and believe if I started I'd never stop. Has anyone else who's come from a family of addiction ever longed for something that could become an addiction? Is that even normal?
