    Every now and then, there is a thing that a person will do over and over and over again be it consciously or subconsciously. It becomes a sort of ritual for them, which can lead them to becoming addicted to it if they do not do it on a specific character. For an example, some people love enchanting WAY too much, to the point that every character they play, has to use enchanting... Even if there is no reason whatsoever for them to use it... If you wish to vent and seek healing, simply confess your ailment and we will start a program to help you. For example, let's take a young lad named... Well, we'll leave him anonymous. Alright sir, whenever you're ready... Uh... Hi... My name is ****... And I am a Seranaholic. I... *stifles some tears* sorry... I... Constantly pair her and one of my characters in a romantic way in my mind or... Fan fiction! *cries* I need help!!!

    It was an idea me and kynareth came up with when she said I-... I mean... My friend! Is addicted to serana, and we tried to think of little addictions in the game that were funny.

    I hoard food. Any food I see I will pick it up, as well as mead and wine. Cheese Wheels and full bread is my favourite.

    I collect books.  Even if my character doesn't read, can't read, or would like to establish a book burning.  I collect books.  All of them.  I want every last volume in the game in my personal library.  It's quite immersion-breaking sometimes, but, there it is.  That's the one thing I do on every character I've ever made.

    Of course, I'm sure that comes as no surprise to any of you.  Apocryhpa, after all, would be my undoing.  We all know this.  I'd be like them...the seekers with tentacles on their faces.  Like they're trying to impersonate Zoidberg or Cthulu and are failing miserably.

    I have a confession.... I... I kill everyone that makes a bad remark to my characters.

    It was fun at first.... killing nazeem with my barefists then his wife with a petty steal dagger.... but then it got out of control and I've killed half of the civilians in whiterun hold!

    This habit is spreading all over skyrim and now I have about a 10,000 septim bounty in every hold...

    The worst part is that I am (well was) playing a helpful crusader!!!

    I worked that out :) First I started to focus only on skill books. Then, when I learned of the Dragonborn black book power I started to leave them to come back later. Now I don't pick them up at all. Though the fact that I've read about 90% of them does help :)

    There is something that is present in all my characters... Nirnroot! That plant, I'm fascinated by it, the sound it emits, the soft glow, the alchemical properties of it (it fills like a crime using it in potions!). And the Crimson Nirnroot...! All of my characters collect every Nirnroot plant they come across, even if they are far from being alchemists.

    Ha Vazgen!  Nirnroot can be so hard to resist for me, too!  Part of me wants to pull it simply to stop that noise that eats into my brain and would drive me insane very quickly if I ever had a Nirnroot farm!

    LOL, three of my characters married Avrusa Sarethi and were living on a Nirnroot farm!

    Sweetrolls.  They are like miniature works of art...the golden brown crust, the frosting dripping down just perfectly.  I compulsively buy them all, no matter what character I am playing.  I will even wait until people leave the room and steal them.  They are a temptation that I cannot resist.  Yet I hoard them, eating them only after a particularly tough battle or resolution to a quest.  Luckily characters do not gain weight in Skyrim!

    Wow, the appeal of Nirnroot is so strong that it dictates your marital choice!   I think this is coming close to matching the intensity of Bryn's obsession with Serana!
