    Obsession with something or for something

    Hi everyone!
    Please advice which is correct N1 or N2?
    1. My obsession for cars is becoming more and more addictive.
    2. My obsession with cars is becoming more and more addictive.
    I think "with" is better because of "to be obsessed with". May be I am wrong though.
    Thanks in advance.

    'Obsession with' is correct.

    You can also be obsessed by, as well as obsessed with.
