  1. Candy pieces dance around in front of your eyes as you drift off to sleep every night.
  2. You know which levels are the hard ones because of the sheer amount of people complaining about them (30, 35, 65. 97, and 98).
  3. That damn. Last. JELLY.

  4. You know which of your friends are slackers at work, and/or have too much free time on their hands, by their response times to your life requests and episode unlock requests.
  5. Thinking about chocolate bars makes you clench your fists in anger and frustration.
  6. You regularly scroll forward to see who’s ahead of you. You regard those who are like 45 levels ahead of you with a mixture of awe (“I’m not worthy!”), envy (“Man, I wish I had that kind of time!”), and disdain (“They had to have spent money.”).
  7. You’ve purchased an extra battery for your cell phone because:
    1. You regularly drain your existing battery with your Candy Crush obsession
    2. You’ve been caught with a dead battery when you need to play Candy Crush (or worse yet, your battery died while you were playing)
  8. You have looked up Candy Crush strategy online.
  9. Your family has offered to pray for your soul. (I’m looking at you, S!)
  10. You make up stupid lists like this for your blog, and know that a great portion of your readers will totally get what you’re saying…and can contribute to the list themselves. ;-)

  1. Dee:

    eeek – I just started playing two weeks ago and spent 4 days stuck on 35 until I finally beat it last night! Now, I have no idea how to move forward? It says that I have to unlock more – what does that mean??

  2. Emma:

    I’m so obsessed with this game!!! I’ve been stuck on level 63 for almost a week and it’s driving me crazy!

  3. Jill:

    My husband is so anti-social media. Yet, he got stuck on a level and needed help from friends so, he linked up to Facebook to get some help playing. :)

    Also, 30. That’s all I have to say.

    • I’m not anti-social meda, but I AM against linking games to your social media accounts….until I started playing Candy Crush, that is. :-P Now I’m bugging my FB friends left and right to give me more lives!

      It’s ingenius, really: to keep playing, you need to tell all your friends about it, or give them money. Evil game makers!

  4. Susan aka Petitemandoo:

    oh i KNOW number 9 isn’t referring to me. man i hate this game. no no i don’t i dont i love it.

  5. I am HOOKED! In part, thanks to you ;) I love it & am not afraid to admit it!

    Chocolate is now my nemesis!! What little jerks they are!

  6. I haven’t even met chocolate yet, but what the heck is that level with the floating jelly?! I’m anxious now. You know you’re addicted when you come up with Other activities to pass the time until a life regenerates on your phone, like getting dressed or playing the listless Bejeweled Blitz. Haha.

    • Leysa:

      If you run out of lives, you can get all of them back in an instant. Just change the time and date settings forward a day of your phone, re-enter your game to see yep, 5 full lives are there again! Then change your time and date settings back to automatic. Keep playing. No waiting ever!!!!! It’s just tricking the countdown timer in the game:)

  7. JenG:

    Chocolate gaw! It makes me want to cry. Level 65 was brutal. I have a friend in the 100s level and definitely envious!!! Guess I’m long beyond addicted!

  8. Argg I really really hate the chocolates. Then it’s the bombs!

  9. This is so funny! And I have not entered the world of chocolate bars…. uh oh…. Also, I’m super impressed at how far you are!! I bug you and the same 3 friends over and over for lives, hahahaha

  10. candy:

    gggaaaaahhhhhhhh

  11. Leysa:

    I’m at Level 211. Can hardly believe it myself. It gets better after the bombs go away. Once you start ‘collecting orders’ instead of clearing jelly or bringing the ingredients down you get lots of satisfying fun because the levels start with hidden freckles and striped candies to begin with. Woo! Oh dear. So, so addicted.

  12. Evangeline:

    I’m not sure I’m allowed to complain but level 291 is a BITCH!

    Also: 11) After a certain point in time, you start to worry if you’re going to run out of levels. No, I’m not joking. Part of me wonders if my subconscious is making me fail on purpose again and again so that the end does not come too soon…
