This is a question Addicted

Cigarettes, gambling, porn and booze. What's your addiction? How low have you sunk and how have you tried to beat it?

Thanks to big-girl's-blouse for the suggestion

Ooh thought of something!
I'm addicted to hugs.
Cuddles, snuggles, cwtches.. I just need to feel physical affection.
I am a naturally happy person and despite certain stresses it will take quite a lot to break me.
But if I go for even a few days without being able to have a hug I just feel really down.
No matter what happens, it feels like when I get that little bit of affection, everything is alright again.

I've been ill for the past week. I'm almost better now but I haven't been able to go out (save for work the past two days.)
This means that I'm desperate to see my friends so I can get my fix.

If only I could buy a hug machine to keep with me, I'd be happy forever!

See, sometimes, I wonder if bigger problems are rooted down to simple things like this.

I have a big pile of problems, some of which mentioned here, but the biggest difficulty/hurt I face on a daily basis is that often I really, really, really want a hug. I desperately want to come home to someone who I can just let go to.

That person doesn't exist.

So here's a *hug* this Christmas, and another for the new year. Take care

Me too, sort of...
...whoever I've been attached to to the extent that they regularly shared my bed, I go into a decline if I don't get to curl up next to them last thing at night. More than a couple of days and I start to get irritable.

Even those I argued with more often than was healthy, as long as we had that sweet 5 minutes before nodding off to sleep, it felt like everything would be okay no matter how shit a time in general was being had. Strange thing is that if I'm single at a given time then for however long, the craving doesn't exist. But as soon as a coupling starts to get serious then BAM! - gimme snuggles or expect mood swings.

My last BF (featured briefly in my best-of but not in a good way) wasn't so keen and ended up putting a cordon of quilt between me and him*, making physical contact pretty much impossible. Just one of the reasons that it didnt work out.

The current BF though is just the same as me. Whilst there are occasional overheating issues to take into account, I can always count on his arms around me as I drift off, or vice-versa. Just one of the reasons that I really like this guy**.

Snuggles - they're not a luxury, they're a staple.

* That is unless he wanted some of my sweeeet lovin, which in his defence was more often than not. Got a bit scarce when things went downhill at the end though.
** Understatement.

If you want a hug machine
I won't get out of bed for less than £7 an hour.

Honestly, I'd do it for free... if I could find someone to hug.

They're like a great big hug-in-a-mug.
