    I found many hits for lifeholic. Not sure we need that word, but it appears to be here.

    However, when googling from Spain (Google), the engine gives you a "Maybe you meant 'lifeaholic'" warning. By clicking on "lifeaholic", you get around 10 times more hits than for "lifoholic".

    I do agree with Mike in that I don't find the word all that useful, although I must admit it's somewhat colorful.
