Addictions.

I created a few images on quitting smoking and other addictions such as credit earlier this year and have also searched the Dreamstime data base.

Another problem area is gambling especially online

and Sex addiction is well illustrated here on Dreamstime

I can imagine readers of this blog saying to themselves I am not addicted to anything ........ but I have an admission to make........ I am addicted to photography. The Proof is the purchase of books devoted only to photography for my Christmas present. Titles include...........complete guide to digital photography, complete photography course, the digital photography book, people pictures and how to photograph absolutely everything.

Burk Uzzle the American Photographer explains the addiction .. he says ' Photography is a love affair with life '.

To achieve 50 uploads per month on Dreamstime you need to dream about images 24 hours each day !!!!!!!!!! Are you an addict after all ?

Please tell us about your addiction if you have one !!!!!!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2012.

PS Two packets of B and H cigarettes per day cost over

Dear Corina, dont give in.............. drink some fine Italian wine in the evening to deaden the craving for cigarettes. Use big patches to help for up to 3 months. David.

I know of a gentleman who smoked for 40 years and suddenly quit one fine day. No taper down, no gradual withdrawl..... just a straight full stop. So its a question of will power.

Thanks David, I agree with the patches or lozenges too, It would have been great to have quit cold-turkey like some people do but I dont have the will-power.:( Your photography addiction has certainly paid off for you, your port is beautiful! wish you many sales!

Debra................. those niquitin patches are given free in Scotland and ease the longing to smoke ordinary cigarettes............ If you calculate the savings that is a spur to keeping your resolve...........did you cough every morning in the shower............ thats what cigarettes cause........ congratulations. David.

I smoked cigarettes for a quarter century until a month and a half ago, now i still smoke but electric cigarettes(nicotine and water vapor), feel sooo much better! I highly recommend it as a starting point to antone wanting to quit. Happy Holidays everyone!

Dear Francy874 do you fear a cold turning into bronchitis ? and very difficult to get better. When you are next ill with a chest infection start using patches on your arms. Think about the money you will save.......... a new camera every year or more holidays become affordable. I love your portfolio and download ratio. David.
