hmm I find most serious shows like prison break, heroes and 24 boring. I like the mystery ones with a touch of humor like monk and castle. Psych too, I love it. One amazing thing is that sitcoms haven't deteriorated like music,film and professional wrestling entertainment.  Big smile


you might like Dexter then, it's mystery/suspense, with some dark humour thrown in

yeh i agree.. do you still watch wwe?


I'll try dexter.. but I don't like too much of dry humor either, I like wacky humor instead.. like I like the office but not that much. 

Well I watched it like a drug LOL  when it was wwf:









But now it kinda sucks, so I dont watch it much, but I love the wwe games still. Big smile

Good question! I think that's where we got our answer! LOL  Obsession applies only to behavioural addiction, because it's mainly psychological. The reason why we get addicted to some behavioura patterns is because of the obsession. But there is no obsession in substance addiction. It takes over our system, and it makes the system obsessed rather than our minds. It creates that sense of dependance which trickles down to or should I say, up towards our minds. I think thats how it is, atleast.



Also is cigarette smoking only a substance addicitoon, or is it also a behavioural addiction? or does it start off as the latter and ends up as the former?
 
Good post! Big smile But, but, but... how do you know you're obsessed with internet or addicted to it?? LOL Or are you saying that obsession and behavior addiction are one and the same?
 
Yes, yes, substance addiction has some psychological influence too, so, I'm guessing substance addiction is behavioral addiction to some extent. It starts of as BOTH behavioral and substance addiction(as a substance is being taken in) and ends up as pure substance addiction, when the addiction turns into a habit of chronic intake of smoke.


Yes, perhaps obsession is the be all and end all of behavioural addiction but it's just one element of substance addiction.

I think addiction is related to one or other forms of pleasure or mental stimulation.
Some long distance runners get high breathing air.LOL
some have to bury themselves in books and are avid readers due to the pure joy of reading.
Once addiction is too deep rooted it is impossible to cut off. But some have done after years of bring hooked on. I got friends who have cut down their drinking addiction but their hands shiver and shake and they cannot hold it still.
I tried drinking but found it repulsive after the initial glass.
I love drinking tea though.
