19 Signs You're Addicted to Law and Order: SVU

Law and Order: SVU goes there. It’s so deeply disturbing that you can’t look away, like a train wreck, only it draws you in for hours. You settle in for an episode, and suddenly you’ve lost all sense of time because you’ve been watching for days. While I used to be an addict, I’ve since mended my ways. Sometimes the show gets too dark, even for me, and after particularly repulsive episodes, I decide to take a break… until the next marathon, that is. Here are 19 signs that you watch way too much Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. 

1. You still believe, in your heart of hearts, that Benson and Stabler will get married.
