Addiction?

Do you think you have an addiction when it comes to reading? Why or why not? How far do you think it had to go before your reading habits become what someone would call an “addiction”?

Reading is always something I’ve always enjoyed. When I was a kid, there were probably a few times I got into trouble for reading when I should have been doing something else. But I’ve learned, as an adult, that there are times when it’s appropriate to read and other times when it’s not appropriate. For instance, I don’t read when I’m at work unless it’s my lunch hour. Also, if I’m at home, I’ll make sure my chores are done before I read.

Basically, I don’t think it’s an addiction because I make sure it doesn’t interfere with my responsibilities. As long as you’re not burying yourself in what you’re reading and you get your stuff done, I don’t see the harm in it.
