Let’s face it folks, addiction is real. I’m writing this piece whilst smoking a cigarette and drinking a cup of coffee. And of course I’m doing this whilst feeding my internet addiction (and listening to a podcast that I downloaded on iTunes). Am I a Multi-tasker or Addict? I really don’t know.
Fact is: Everyone has some of other form of addiction. Some people go out drinking or spend their nights drinking at home and others smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day (without going out drinking). There also those that indulge themselves in 5 cups of good tasting non-caffeine free coffee a day and internet and social media addicts that spend 8 hours a day on Facebook. There’s gamers out there who spent 12 hours a day playing World Of Warcraft, Diablo 3 or Eve Online. And let’s not forget the sex addicts out there, Lord knows what they do to get their fix.
To be honest I smoke a pack of cigarettes every two days, I drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day and I go out drinking at least 2 nights a week. In between all of this I spend 8 hours a day working on the internet. And when I get home I spent another 2-3 hours working on this blog daily. Let’s not forget the urge I have to do my bit in the SA Music scene by taking at least 1,000 to 2,000 photos almost every weekend and the urge I have to get some excitement running through my veins that only happens when I attend the coolest gigs and festivals that SA Music has to offer.
Yes, I know it’s not healthy and yes, my name is Henno and I’m addicted to Nicotine, Caffeine, Alcohol, the Internet, Photography and Live Music. At least I’m brave enough to admit it. I picked up this Meme that features the Battle Of The Addictions. I’m pretty sure that it’s damn relevant to many of you reading this.
So, we’ve established that addiction is alive and well in 2013. What we haven’t established is which one of these 4 addictions in this meme will win in the Battle of Addictions? Leave a comment and let me know who you think wins.
