Soft Addictions Quiz
Is it a soft addiction or a harmless habit?
Take this quiz to find out (and get a free gift!)

Soft addictions are those seemingly harmless habits like over-shopping, overeating, watching too much TV, endlessly surfing the internet, procrastinating—that actually keep us from the life we want. They cost us money, rob us of time, numb us from our feelings, mute our consciousness, and drain our energy. And we all have them.   — Judith Wright, author of There Must Be More than This
