Football Addiction – Am I Addicted to Football?

The second (and last) round of 10 questions to answer if you may be a little bit too much involved in football

  1. A holiday is regarded as ‘spoiled’ if the accommodation had no satellite TV, or any other means of interacting with the football.
  2. You ensure that you are close to a TV, radio or the Internet when your team is playing. If there are any delays, you feel nervous and distracted. If you plan holidays, trips, visits, you also hope and go out of your way to ensure that you will still be able to watch your team play.

  4. You agree that, for example, the BBC does not spent enough on broadcasting rights, and that the public channels do not show enough football.
  5. Your bedsheets, pillows, mugs, et cetera, bear the club logo of your favourite team and your alarm clock plays football related tunes or anthems.
  6. Early in the morning or first thing after you return from work, you read the newspaper or check the Internet for any important football news. You always read the sports pages of every newspaper first, and never miss an opportunity to stay up to date with your sporting soap opera.
  7. Your health is not the best, you maybe (slightly) overweight, you smoke and/or drink alcohol (perhaps too much). You have promised many times to pay more attention to yourself, but somehow it never happens.
  8. Dinner should ideally be served during the half-time break.
  9. If your team loses, you’re often in a bad mood, feel irritated and find it hard to concentrate. You cannot wait until the next game for your team to redeem itself and your spirits.
  10. Quite often you break promises, such as helping in the garden, in preference to a match you have just found available to watch or listen to.
  11. You physically attend at least half of the league games your team plays every season, even if your bank account is sometimes empty and you cannot really afford to go.

You are not alone… Please participate in the questionnaire

If you have just self-diagnosed your own football addiction, then your ever-moaning partner may be not so very wrong after all and you may indeed be over-doing what you consider as just a hobby. Football is a beautiful game, embracing the world in spherical shaped harmony, but it is certainly not everything in life!

    But I just find the attraction of football to be addictive. It’s been there all my life and it’s still there.

    18/20 yep I am properly addicted and IMO it is an addiction stronger than gambling, sex, Heroin/Crack. You name it being addicted to a sport is a habit that will last a lifetime.
