    I don't see any poll? obviously the worst addiction is meth or heroin, something like that.

    A question: In swedish, the word for Gaming and Gambling is the same... Is that the case here as well?
    Gambling addiction is really bad... but so is smoking! I don't mind if people smoke, but it's much more unhealthy than gaming, and is far more wide spread! there are a few gaming addiction cases that's actually serious business, wihle there are more smoking addictions that's bad or worse...

    I voted for FACEBOOK!
    I mean, an addiction to facebook and other online stuff games and shit will mean that you probably pay for the in game cash and shit... and that's bad silly and right out weird! Smoking, while it's unhealthy isn't that much of a problem somehow.. though it's really expencive... but it's a choice and sometimes not even that! so it's all hard to say... I went with online shit because of so many people who's actually addicted to it... loosing their job, doesn't take care of children, etc. etc. because of a fucking fish tank on facebook??

    EDIT: smoking doesn't take up your time in that way...

    I vote partying. Can't tell you how many people I knew that turned to shit once they got into the party lifestyle. It changes people for the worse.

    1. you have to compare the amount that pot smokers smoke compared to tobacco smokers...i dont smoke pot anymore as i was in the prestages of marijuana induced schizophrenia, but, when i did smoke pot and when my friends smoke pot they only blaze maybe...a total of 4-8 times a month? as compared to tobacco smokers who tend to smoke very often.
    and also, if pot gets legallized, vapourizers will become cheap, and every stoner will be in a tar-free heaven.

    2. simply put: you can't compare a typical pothead to someone who smokes pot and does cocaine.

    i'm not going to bother with that last paragraph, as i'm aware of how true it is haha [​IMG]


    that just needed to be said, lol. i dont deny pot being addictive though, at least on the mental level.







    ANYWAYS, to the topic at hand, I think I'll say the internet is by FAR more addicting. Why? Many people use the internet for countless hours day and wouldn't even think to call it an addiction.

    For addiction, I would say internet. But if you get addicted to smoking it destroys your lungs.

    Smoking for sure, it's the only option that's guaranteed to kill you.

    Internet porn, it will destroy your life from the inside out may not kill you but if you can't control your urges say goodbye to your money and marriage because divorce attorneys and marriage counselors will find out quicker than a heart attack.

    Smoking for sure,it kills and its actually addicting because nicotine, when it comes to other stuff you can be a person with a non addictive personality so you could game or party in moderation.
