addicted to...Him - March 2nd 2011, 11:39 PM

I know it sounds strange but He is all I ever think about..day or night He's on my mind. I feel like i'm suffocating during the weekends when i can't see him and during school i cant wait until class ends so i can catch a glimpse in the halls. I'm not sure if this should be in here or relationships but this is fine for now...i cant give him up...but i think i might have to

Hey there,

Are you both in a relationship right now, or is this just a crush? Its totally normal to think someone is absolutely perfect for you and to always want to see them. However stalking is a whole other story.
I had the biggest crush on my ex before we went out and he was all I thought about it. It's completely normal
As teenagers, we're obsessed with love and its one of the biggest influences to us.

Take care!

And here you are living, despite it all.

It's not a physiological addiction, it's a "crush" you have for someone. I wouldn't call it a psychological addiction either.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

Hey there,
I know how you feel. I'm assuming this is just a crush based on the way you explained it. It is perfectly normal to have a crush and hope to see them, feel giddy , exited, or even nervous when you are around them. All these feelings are perfectly normal as teenagers. It sounds like this is more of an obsession, vs. an addiction. Obsessions are hard to get over, especially if you feel consumed by them. I think you need to try forcing your brain to think of other things. When he comes to mind try to immediately focus on other things such as school work, sports after school, or any other thing you can think of. You need to start training your brain to get over the obsession, and although this is not easy..it is possible. You are perfectly normal. Just take time to try to re-focus your brain when you feel you are obsessing about him too much. If you want to keep me updated or explain anything in more detail, please feel free to PM me. I would love to keep helping you out.
