I don’t think I have an addictive personality, but I doÂ have addictions. For example, I am addicted to lip balm; Chapstick to be precise. I carry a tube of SPF 30 Chapstick with me everywhere, and have several back-ups placed strategically in my house, office, car, and gym locker. I re-apply liberally throughout the day, whether I need it or not. IÂ have an irrational fear that I’llÂ end up with lips so chapped it looks like I have two pieces of blood sausage on my face.
I just can’tÂ quit my Chapstick.
Also, I’m not certain yet, but I’ve come to realize lately that I might be addicted to sodas as well. Further research pending.
So for today’s Inquisition:
What, if anything, are you addicted to? And does the capacity for addictionÂ have anyÂ evolutionary benefit?
