What's your strange addictions or quirks?Page 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I really like the TLC show Strange Addiction. The people on there fascinate me like the couch cushion eater, dead husband ashes eater, thumb sucker, & much more.

One of my quirks is making sure I'm in a parking space perfectly. I would adjust my SUV multiple times just to be sure. Another is my fascination with adult thumb suckers (not in sexual way either). I'm thinking "how & why they do that?". I guess, my weird addiction is watching other people's stange addiction lol.

Anyway, I ask you POF: What are your strange addictions or quirks?

I find myself pulled into watching that show too even though I try and resist it :)

no strange habits now. But when I was a little, 5 up to 7 r 8, i use to chew off bits of a certain blanket. I always covered with it when i slept at this one place and the rim around it had this material that almost tore off like paper...i guess from being old. I'd bite of tiny bits and chew it while falling asleep.
I'd also chew on tupperware cups because my canine teeth were too sharp. the lower cupboard had all these cups with chewed up rims. (I've had them shaved down since).

I got bored with TV comedians,,,
There are people on this forum who will make you fall out of your chair,,,
My faves are Zeus, MuscleChic, coyote(too much acid?), C*wboy, BoonTown, and some more I can't remember. These people should put together a book.
I scan the posts and when I see those names, I read it.
Wonderful entertainment, and always fresh stuff!!

"One of my quirks is making sure I'm in a parking space perfectly." Geez, I look out my office window on to the main drag and watch folks park and I always thought that taking half a dozen trys at it just meant they were crappy drivers. Hhmmm, seems they are just "quirky", lol.

No strange addictions or quirks here.

I cannot watch that show, the stuff they eat makes me sick, and yes it's my own personal problem.

I have this touch of OCD (is that right?) and mostly I've conquered it. I no longer have to check to see if the door is locked 20 times or whatever I think I might have not done that I should. But I still have problems with odd numbers. I want everything even and luckily I'm so lazy that I don't get too involved in it but say the TV volume is on 13, I will have to change it to 12 or 14 no matter that 13 is perfect. I try to stop it, I know it's dumb and sometimes I can let it go but then it pops into my head and I have to change it. Really a stupid thing! I also bite my nails, it's gross, but pretty common, but I don't know what moves a person to want to chew on their own nails/cuticle. The other thing is I have to touch things, like fabric or leather or something soft, I love to runs my hands through something soft like fur. I'm always reaching out to touch things in a store, it's embarrassing.

I'm addicted to trying to FIX everything. Hence the forum addiction. Sometimes my addiction proves useful, other times it drags me down, like all such.

I have succeeded in fighting off my relatively mild addiction to completing sets of things. I can now buy just ONE volume of a five volume set, if that's the only one I need.

One thing I do, it's not really a quirk, but more a dumb habit that makes me look like an idiot. Ever since my cat was a kitten she likes to smell my mouth. So when I'm near her I make a kissy mouth and she smells my lips, we're both "trained" now.
Sometimes when I'm around other people cats I'll do that by habit and of course their cat will just stare at me like "what the hell, fool". And I remember, oh yeah stop it I look like a moron.
Wow, I sound like a lame a$$ crazy cat lady now.
Sigh.
Stop your agreeing!

I despise the number 5. Anything ending in a 5 will drive me to the point of lunacy.

I'm a perfectionist. If I do something I want to do it perfectly or not bother at all. If something ends up with a lackluster conclusion I will scold myself for days at the result.

Very competitive. I hate losing. In fact, the last time I lost was April 26th, 2001. It was a heated bout of backyard soccer/European football. What an emotional rollercoaster that was.

I don't know if I'd call it an addiction but, I think I've got every book on Jack the Ripper in creation. I know the details inside and out, but if a new book comes out it gets read cover to cover within an evening or two.


that fascinates me too. i don't own any books about it, but i read everything i can get my hands on about the case. same with lizzie borden.

and shipwrecks. i've spent entire evenings reading about one shipwreck.

Beachglass or seaglass....................and I'm not talking about the jagged pieces, but the ones that have been polished for over 50 yrs and up, by the wind, sand and water.

One of the places I go to is a little secret beach and there have been over 250 shipwrecks that have happened just a few miles from there and I have no doubts that some pieces I have found have been off those shipwrecks, beautifully polished, smooth as jellybeans!

Blues and greens and purples and reds and yellows, brown and whites, aquas and teals, and also pottery shards, beautifully smoothed over. And the terrain I have gone over just to retreive these pieces has been crazy, but ya know everytime I spot one of those pieces, I kid you not, my heart skips a beat, it never gets old, I get just as excited now as when I found my first piece!!

I have jars and jars of them and then I have a special place for all my favourite ones and the neat thing is I could tell you a story about each one of those pieces ,what season, where I found it, what the weather was like, what I was feeling, and how elated I was to find it!!

Yep...........I think that qualifies as an addiction, lol!!!

Seems like I can foretell a traffic mishap
is about to happen 5 to 10 seconds ahead
of time. (not the ones that happen to me
though !)
If I have somebody with me I will say ....
"Watch that intersection up ahead
or that car"......and bang it happens.....that
weirds them out ! :)
Yet I can never foretell that my mild response
to an outright insult from someone else here in
the forums will be automatically deleted !!! wtf !

I rock while I'm on the phone or anytime I'm forced to stand still. I rock when I first go to bed at night. If I'm not rocking I'm moving my legs constantly.
A man I was seeing told my kids this. They thought it was depressing/sad. A grown woman rocking herself to sleep. Pent up energy?
I used to do the "even number" thing another poster talked about when I was a child. Outgrew that thankfully, it drove me nuts!
Used to also listen to the same song over and over until my ex or kids hid the dvd.
I can't not watch Hoarders even though they make me so angry I want to slap them.

I do wish that they wouldn't pull the insulation out of the joists, though..!!
