Baseline happiness and addiction — why we’re all addicted without even realising it

  1. Have you ever done a binge of a TV show and just kept watching and watching for a whole day? (tick for me)
  2. Have you overeaten and binged on food that you enjoyed?(tick for me)
  3. Do you find yourself scrolling through social media when you’re bored?(tick for me)
  4. Do you find yourself swiping on dating apps when you’re bored? (tick for me in the past)
  5. Do you like betting or do you check your stocks everyday? (tick for me in the past)
  6. Have you had an issue with drugs in the past? (no tick for me, but you might relate)
  7. Do you need porn to get off? (no tick for me, but you might relate)
  8. Have you made a habit of any of the above in the past? (tick for me; bingeing TV all day and buying crisps on a daily basis were some of my bad habits)
