Not all addictions are something to hide from others or be ashamed of. In a discussion forum, a recent topic was addictions people wear with pride. Let’s see what they shared!

Duolingo is a free app that helps you to learn how to speak a foreign language fluently. I am not so sure this user is doing it right, though. They said, “Duolingo, got a 1614 day streak…can still only speak English.”
Another fellow user replied, “I love this comment…Buenos Dias?”
There are definitely worse things to be addicted to, plus think about the benefits of all that fresh air and sunshine! One person said, “Walking in the woods/being in nature. I can’t get enough of it and it does the mind and body good.”
Another said, “Yes, I foolishly tried living in the city for a little while and it was crushing my soul. Once I moved back to the woods, it was like I could finally breathe again.”
Discovering New Music
Music is another addiction that you can be proud to have, and there is always something new to listen to.
One music addict said, “Discovering new music is fun and addictive,” and another replied, “I am always listening to something. I love when my friends suggest new music for me to enjoy. ”
There are a lot of proud book lovers out there, and they don’t care if you know it! One bookworm said, “Books. Buying them, checking them out at the library, collecting them, reading them, reading about them. There’s nothing like a great book to lift you out of a funk, teach you new things, let you visit other worlds, and escape for awhile.”
A fellow book lover said, “Browsing, choosing, buying, reading, libraries, book clubs, reviews…they’re all separate aspect of one of the greatest joys in life.”
Making People Laugh
Another great addiction to have and be proud of! The world has plenty of sadness already, and if you can brighten someone’s day, you should.
One future comedian said, “Making people laugh/smile. It’s difficult, and it doesn’t always work and probably sometimes make me look like a dumb ass but I try not to think about it.”
If you are addicted to coffee, you are definitely not alone. It’s hard not to be addicted to coffee since it’s delicious!
One coffee lover said, “Coffee, but it’s an addiction I can control, I just let it happen.” Another replied, “Had coffee in the morning for just a few days, and now I feel tired without it, also get one every time I feel tired now.”
People don’t often admit to being addicted to a specific food, but there were quite a few proud pasta lovers participating in the conversation.
One said, “I am the most Italian non-Italian in the world,” while another said, “I learned to properly cook it two months ago , since then I can’t stop eating it, lol, it’s like a drug of foods. LOL.”
If you are a pumpkin spice addict, you definitely aren’t alone. There is no shortage of products and foods for you to indulge your cravings with.
One man said, “Pumpkin spice. I am a 250 lb bearded man that gets made fun of by my family even saying the word pumpkin. Idc sh*t’s delicious , and in a few months I’ll be all about that eggnog!” Another man said, “Same man. My coffee, my pipe tobacco, my ice cream, even my protein shakes. PumpKING spice!”
One of the more unusual but still wholesome addictions people admitted to having was a love of chess. One person said, “Used to love chess as a kid. Played every chance I could.”
Another person replied to him, saying, “You should get back into it. The online chess community is huge nowadays. Not to mention the content creators for chess are great and super entertaining.”
Yes, there are people out there who are addicted to water and proud of it. They even have a name for themselves and forums celebrating their addiction.
One water addict said, “Hydro Homie here! Love my water. ” Another fellow addict said, “Hydrate or perish brother,” while another commented, “Hydrate or diedrate!”
