There are some addictions that people try to hide from the world because they are ashamed of them in some way. However, there are some addictions that people are proud to embrace and will shout out loud and proud to the world.
In a recent conversation online, people discussed things they’re proud to be addicted to. Here are ten of the top things they proudly embrace.

Music is something that many people are proudly addicted to. Can you blame them? How sad would the world be without musical expression?
One person said, “Discovering new songs and learning them on the guitar.” Another said, “Same! Especially when I am creating it.”
Pasta is delicious, it’s versatile, and it’s cheap. What’s not to love about it? Not only are people proud of their pasta addictions, but they are also proud of their favorite types!
One person said, “I’m the most Italian non-Italian in the world,” and another replied, “Fettuccine my beloved.” Another chimed in, saying, “Farfalle is the best one I don’t care what you say!”
Getting regular exercise is certainly not a bad habit to have, and some people enjoy it so much they want you to come join in as well.
One woman said, “I just love moving and being outside, walking, jogging, hiking. And I am a slightly obese 64 year old woman so it’s good for me. I have been active for a long time and I’m seeing so many health benefits as I age.”
Some people aren’t just addicted to exercise but to getting stronger and lifting weights as well.
One gentleman said, “I repped out a 100 kg backsquat for the first time in over 15 years last week. It’s a lot less than what I could lift in my late teens and early 20s. But, it’s a ‘back in the gym after treating my body horribly for 10 years’ record.”
Fall is here, and pumpkin spice season has arrived with it. Pumpkin spice is one of those things that you either love or hate, and there are plenty of people who will proclaim their love for it.
One person said, “It’s annoying to hear people constantly complain about pumpkin spice everything everywhere. I love it and this is the one time of year where I can easily enjoy it.”
Another person replied, “Preach it brother! I get excited for fall every year, specifically for pumpkin spice everything.”
People may be proud of their pumpkin spice habit, but there are plenty of people who proclaim eggnog to be king of the seasonal winter beverages.
One person said, “Egg nog is my favorite drink ever, such a shame it’s only around for part of the year.” Someone else replied, “I have missed egg nog for three years straight so far. You can imagine how miserable I’ve been.”
Everyone has at least one person in their life who is constantly applying and reapplying their chapstick to their lips. It might even be you! Don’t worry because having a chapstick addiction is quite common.
One lady said, “Chap Stick. It’s keeping my lips young while the rest of me deteriorates into the crypt keeper.” Someone else said, “People tease me about putting up Chap Stick all the time, but I’ve just got to keep my lips moist.”
If you are addicted to crocheting or other handmade crafts, don’t be ashamed. You are not alone! Also, being able to make something with your hands like that is awesome.
One person said, “Crocheting and sketching are my addictions.” Another man said, “I am a 6 foot 4 inch tall 325 lb bearded man who wears an athletic cut suit. I absolutely love crochet, particularly to make things for my five year old daughter.”
A surprising number of people admitted to having an addiction to mint. There’s nothing wrong with minty fresh breath, though.
One mint addict said, ” Mints. Mint addiction. I eat Altoids like candy.” Someone else said, “I can’t disagree, mint slaps!”
Another person replied, “I get stuck on a different type of mint every few months.”
Collecting Physical Media
Now that everything is streaming, including music, TV shows, and movies, you might think that the desire for physical media is down. It’s not, though. There are a lot of people who are addicted to having a physical copy of their favorite media.
One person said, “Collecting physical media. Books, movies, video games etc. Everything is trending towards digital/streaming these days, but for me owning a physical copy is just so satisfying.”
