    To or For?

    Right, opinions please, which one makes more sense:

    "Fuelling your addiction to alternative fashion"

    "Fuelling your addiction for alternative fashion"

    Please explain why it is as well, thank you :)

    NOT A TEACHER


    addiction TO

    I do not think I can explain. I would take it as a rule and memorize it. To me it seems as a piece of factual information rather than a matter of a pattern that is feasible to learn and that you are probably expecting.

    addiction - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online

    According to Longman it's "to".

    Ben Alan, I have looked at your profile, and I have to say that your biography rubbed me the wrong way. I think it's highly inappropiate to use such language in your profile description. You wrote, 'AuburnYeah, I'm f*****g English, I drink tea, I eat buttered crumpets and talk with a posh whiny accent' and 'F**k you America!!!' The asterisks are mine since you didn't bother to conceal this highly inappropriate language.

    Re: To or For?

    I agree with you, CS.

    The forum has a number of highly qualified contributors of many nationalities, Ben Adam.

    You would be well advised to show proper respect to those whose opinions you are seeking.

    Re: To or For?

    That seems like a very ill-advised profile statement, not least because if you're going to teach English, you should know the difference between "gluten" and "glutton".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
