  • No. Thank Goodness!
  • Would my addiction to Answerbag count?
  • Yes, my family has many people who have addictions. My father is an alcoholic but a functioning one and not mean at all. There are several alcoholics and some drug addicts; mostly addicted to pain pills.
  • My brother and both our parents have been spared (except that both parents smoked tobacco), but I do family genealogy and you can see a sad pattern of alcoholism in some of our lines. We look at that, and we know it's just our good luck to have missed out on the genes that make a person more vulnerable to addiction. So far, even our extended family has been lucky enough not to have hooked up with anything worse than alcohol or tobacco. On the other hand, tobacco is killing my mother and it will kill her brother. Mom quit, but she quit too late. She ruined her lungs, my lungs, and (to a lesser extent) my brother's lungs. She's on oxygen now. For a little while. If any smokers are reading this, please believe me and get free before it's too late for you and your kids, too.

  • My mom is an alcholic, my aunt is an alcholic, another aunt died from alcholism, I have a sister with an eating disorder... other than that, we are healthy people!! *sigh*
  • Yes. I have 7 children, a wife and three mistresses and every single one of us is into serious drugs, heroin, crack - you name it. My 3 mistresses can't earn enough money out on the streets to support our habits, so I send my children out to do robberies, which lets us live a very comfortable life style. Come on! Nobody's going to answer a question like that with absolute honesty unless the addictions are, shall we say, more socially acceptable, such as smoking and drinking.

  • I have the most addictions probably... but my grandmother is also a SERIOUS addict. Of course, everything she takes is prescribed, but she is addicted nonetheless. Morphine, percocet, Xanax, and sleeping pills. She has a degenerative back disease so there isn't much they can do about it but feed her pain killers.
  • yes, my mother in law is an alcoholic. my ccousin died of a herion overdose in 1992, and recently I have come to believe my husband has a sex addiction.

  • My 3 year old daughter has an addiction with the mirror. She'll stand there, stare at herself, do some finger pointing and have a conversation. This is especially troubling when we're in a rush to get her ready in the am, take her to daycare and get to work at a reasonable time.
