When Corn snake collecting becomes a addictive behaviour

ad·dicts

1. To cause to become physiologically or psychologically dependent on a habit-forming substance: The thief was addicted to cocaine.
2. To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively

A person who is addicted is known as an addict. Many drugs (especially recreational drugs), for example, cause a set of medical conditions that include stimulating desire for more of the drug (more Corn snakes), increasing tolerance of higher doses(more corn snakes), and pain or discomfort upon terminating use,called withdrawal, (Less Corn snakes).

The word "Cornoholic" or "Corn Loco" (Corn Fiend?)
is some times used jokingly to refer to a corn snake hobbyest..

Although the term is used loosely rather than seriously, there is actually something in this, because any pleasurable activity releases endorphins, and this endorphin-rush can become 'addictive'.

Seek professional treatment if the urge to rob the convenience store on the corner for the "MooLaa" to buy more and more Corn Snake morphs becomes an issue for oneself. hehe.

So many Corn snakes, so little time...
Nobody sets out to be "corn hoe"...but as the addiction grows
