The retailer Ecigarette Direct isn’t just focusing on their Christmas offers to resupply people with vape goodies like e-liquids and electronic cigarette kits. They’re also asking the British public about addictions.
The survey turned up some results that you might expect. Over 50% of the public figure that gaming can be an addiction but it’s not clear whether they meant spending time on the PlayStation 4 or spending money on the likes of Ladbrokes.
Beauty was also an addition. 34% of people said that the urge to look good could also count and some 22% of people admitted they “couldn’t live” if they couldn’t look good. That’s quite a scary figure.
There were some surprises though. Who do you think would be more likely to value a relationship? Men or women? The survey suggested that men might be the more sentimental sex. In the UK 37% of men said they couldn’t cope if they weren’t in a relationship. A smaller number, just 27% of women, said the same thing.
Is Facebook a relationship substitute? The survey didn’t ask whether people would put Facebook ahead of sex but did ask about social media as well as relationships. Women are more likely than men to suggest that social media could become addictive. 54% of women told the survey that social media was a possible addiction and only 45% of men did.

Do you agree with these stats? Is looking good, playing games and social media possible sources of addiction?
If you had to say farewell to either sex or Facebook for the rest of your life – which would you pick?
