What do you all think about "soft addictions"?

By HERWriter Guide August 18, 2010 - 2:18pm

Do they really qualify as addictions? Or is it an insult to those who really struggle?

By soft addictions I mean shopping, the Internet, Facebook, texting, TV etc?

Is the shopaholic, chocaholic, Facebookaholic real, or is she making excuses for self-serving behavior?

I see a distinct difference but am wondering how others feel?

Great discussion starter, Susan!
