17 Ways You Know You’re a Breaking Bad Addict

We (along with the rest of the world) are anxiously awaiting the series finale of AMC’s hit show Breaking Bad. What started as a show about a cancer-ridden, high-school chemistry teacher, who “cooked” crystal meth for money to support his family and healthcare, has devolved into a story about a man careening toward the dark side. This downward spiral makes Breaking Bad  just as addicting as it is (at times) hard to watch. With the final episode airing next Sunday, September 29th, we are waiting with baited breath for the most epic showdown in the history of television. How will it all end and more importantly, who will make it out alive?

In Heisenberg’s honor, we’ve put together a list of the 17 ways you know you’ve become a Breaking Bad addict:

  1. You feel bad for your friends who are just getting into the series and purposely leave them out of the conspiracy conversations until they catch up.

  2. You make up excuses to get out of hanging out with your friends so you can watch an episode at home. Later, you find yourself awake, eyes bloodshot, threatening to cut yourself off after just one more episode… and it’s 3:00 a.m.

  3. You find yourself wearing a lot of black, because you’re re-watching Season 3 and going through a dark period.

  4. You limit your drinking during the football game so you’re sober enough to follow every clue on Sunday night.

  5. You have to watch another episode, because you couldn’t possibly go to sleep after having just witnessed a throat slitting by box cutter. (You know you’re clasping your neck.)

  7. When you walk by a covered house being bug bombed, you automatically conclude there’s a meth lab inside.
