oooor addictive behavior or patterns? Do you have any?

I'm addicted to making new usernames. I must have at least 300 at this point.

I always have to fix my hair. I can't let them go for even 5 minutes.

And I'm a guy

I would call this strange, more like extremely common; I bite my nails. My nails, I'd say are less that 1cm long, that's how bad I bite them. I don't really do it because I'm nervous, or hungry, I just...[enjoy?] biting them? I really would like to stop, since they look ugly, but I can't, haha. I remember I stopped for about a month or so last Christmas/Summer break. I resorted to picking them and that turned out to be much worse than the original habit of mine. I'd pick the skin off and it'd sting like hell. I eventually went back into the habit of biting my nails and haven't really tried stopping ever since. I suppose I'll stop one day...but in a way...that's just a part of me.

[Removing these because all of PC doesn't need to know.]

More of a habit, but I make dumb faces when drawing. Usually to fit the expression of whatever I'm drawing. I end up sitting here, snarling at the computer if whatever I'm drawing is irritated, etc. :x

I use my teeth to rip the skin off my lips, sometimes to the point of it bleeding.

I have a habit of pushing my hair into my face to sort of hide behind it. Only on one side, though; otherwise it just feels unnatural.

This is a more recent habit. I keep messing with my left ear. It's slightly deformed (not enough to be visible, but if I run my thumb across that part, I can feel it), but I never noticed it until a few weeks ago. But yeah, whenever I remember, I feel the need to run my thumb over that part of my ear.

One strange habit is obsessing over my many problems, I find it's not easy for me to ush them aside and not think about them all day which is bound to be bad for me. Another strange habit is messing with this one particular tooth that is at a strange position in my mouth that annoys me to death, I really just want to straighten my teeth so it'll move >_>
Im also addicted to checking my forum profile continuously to see if any new visitors are on the list, I dunno why its just weird.

I can't stop drawing these stupid Nido Pokemon. I'll be in my 70's still drawing these goofs. It's not that I won't draw other things, and given that I don't do much fan art of anything these days, it's amazing how much drive I have to hammer out a Nidoanybody piece of art.

They're like my guilty pleasure of fictional animals.

I wouldn't call this strange, but I like to fight with people when I'm bored. At the end, when boredom says goodbye, I apologize and explain why I even fought them.

My addiction is going through my Yu-Gi-Oh! card collections and I just try to make combos and build a deck, then I'd just place them somewhere and I'd go take the deck back and build another one.


wait does that count?

I stay on the internet for too long, and I browse way too many Pokemon forums. And on top of that, I get way too addicted to making new signatures for me to use here and on Ever Grande.

Also, in terms of PC, I check my profile way too much. I just love how funny it looks right now.

I'm addicted to reorganizing my room, calculating my budget on a nightly basis, and hunting for anime girl fanart on various sites like Pixiv.

And one addiction that is costing me money is requesting deviantArt commissions for art pieces (mostly of Pokemon girls, including my own). There goes about $150 a year, lol.

I'm not really addicted to much. I do have a bad habit of checking social media for activity every five minutes, but it's not really an obsession. I don't know. Maybe I can say the fact that my main source of hydration comes from ice tea is my 'addiction', but eh. Not really addicted to anything.

It's not really strange, but I'm addicted to cracking all the joints in my body. A lot of people do this so it's kinda boring, but I'll crack my knuckles three different ways, my neck two different ways, my knees, my toes, my upper and lower back.

I just love the feeling and the sound of that little pop.

I wouldn't call these addictions as much as I'd call them habits, but...

- I bite my nails constantly...apparently that's a sign of OCD?
- I like to arrange things and clean them, but this doesn't happen as often as it used to
- I give a lot of random things names, and naming is important to me
- I walk on my toes without realizing

That's all I can think of for now. I can tell you an absolute addiction, though. I LOVE Taco Bell.

I'm an entirely normal person.

Spoiler:

I love salad, and always have since i was little.

I wash my hands and face anything up to 6 or 7 times a day

I shower twice a day, [more on the days I go jogging as i shower after a run]

I have to listen to music whilst driving, unless theres a passenger to converse with.

I have clinical insomnia, usually sleep 3-5hours and stay awake for 24+, then repeat. It doesn't effect me that much, and my partner has just learned to adapt.

Half the time I sleep on the sofa rather than my nice big double bed, no idea why, my sofa is just squishy/large enough for two.

Since I've moved out of my parents house, I've been extremely house-proud, and keep an almost flawlessly clean house.

I clean all surfaces before I cook, and afterwards.

I jokingly insult people, just to let them know I care. [only a select few people, they understand its just my humor]

I constantly walk around in varying states of undress whilst at home. I've answered the door completely naked once, to a pair of policemen, no less. They were very understanding.

can't put eyeliner on without opening my mouth, no idea why, it just happens.

I pretty much always have music playing, sometimes I'll just rock out for a bit / get really hyper and jump around a lot listening to some kick-ass rock/metal tunes.

my back is really sensitive, it makes massages great, although it's kind of creepy when a stranger brushes past me, for comparison, imagine a stranger touches your face

More habits rather than addictions, but still.

I'm constantly shaking my leg. I've had people to tell me to stop bouncing around my leg and I didn't even notice. D: I'm jacked up on caffeine, what can I say?

As for obsessions in general... I constantly look up Borderlands, Korra, or Sonic fanart on Tumblr or Pixiv. I have binders and binders of this stuff.

- I bite my nails
- I sing without realizing it
- I chew the flesh on my right hand
- I sleep-walk/perform random activities
- I give away anything when asked, without even thinking about it (it's a strange issue, I simply do not like saying no, but enjoy giving things away [I suppose that marks it as an addiction])

Addendum:
- I obsessively organized everything around me (In alphabetical, than by color, than by size & lastly by date of origin)

Everywhere I go, if products are out of order, I take the time to arrange them. I don't do this at my house, so I don't know what the deal is. I also have a thing about driving barefoot. I'm addicted to not wearing shoes.
