    Never realized I was addicted to CC

    until I retired and had to surrender my CWP from DOE. I had to give up my CWP after retiring from a DOE Phys Security position and file for a new issue Texas CHL.
    During my 32 day wait for my new license to arrive I repeatedly caught myself leaving the house with my normal EDC. Since I don't like to leave a gun in an unattended vehicle, this meant I spent the last month with the "jitters" every time I left the house.
    Boy do I feel better now that I can carry again. Almost like I'm fully dressed again.
    I was issued my first CCP as a "Brig Chaser" in Feb 1986 and have kept one current ever since. This has been the longest I've not been 'legal' in 24 years. I never gave much thought to how it would feel to give it up but, man was it a long month.
    Doesn't that meet the definition of addicted?

    I don't think so. Just means you feel normal when you are able to be prepared.

    Sorry to hear you had to go unarmed for a month. Glad you now have your CHL back and able to once again be prepared to protect yourself if the need arises. Stay safe.

    You are as addicted to conceal carry as you are to walking or putting clothes on in the morning. It isn't addiction as much as something you made part of your life, a daily habit of sorts. IMO carrying is something you may have took for granted hence why you thought it is an addiction when you couldn't carry.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    You probably felt more like having to cross shark infested waters...without a boat.
