Addictive Personality Traits

My life has been pretty much free of addictions, and I pride myself in that fact. Although I had a relationship where I drank vodka and cranberry juice cocktails regularly, when the relationship ended, so did the cocktails. I cannot brag about having no addiction to alcohol as it has never been a temptation. In fact, as a general rule, I don’t like to be around people drinking liquor. Although I have never been tempted to drink regularly, I cannot make that claim about nicotine. I began smoking Pall Malls just about the time I got out of high school and went away to college. After trying to quit smoking for years, I finally eliminated that addiction when my youngest child was born. Finally, I must confess that I was a nail biter until recently. Yes, all of my life, I bit my nails, vowing again and again to stop. Despite my determined efforts, it took having my upper teeth removed to break me of that persistent habit. Believe me, I have tried, but I cannot bite my nails with my dentures. It’s nice to have success at last so that I can perhaps have a manicure every once in a while.
