To flashing ROMs.
Yes. You read that right.
I have this uncontrollable itch. Even when all is fine, I will flash a ROM and feel good. Feels like I spend more time with the parts of the car rather than the car itself. Like I'm always diving, head first into the bonnet of the car all the time...
I want to get rid of this dirty habit. Since I will get my WP8, I will have a lot of free time....
Does anyone else related to this disorder??

I use to have an addiction to overclocking CPU's on my computers until I fried a couple of CPU's.
As soon as you brick a couple of phones, you'll lose the addiction.Check out the great deals on Windows Phone Accessories: http://store.wpcentral.com

I was addicted to ROM flashing on my Androids and was continually trying to make it perfect.
When I got my Lumia, I didn't want to do anything that might mess it up. I like it "wholesome" and the one advantage is officially updates are easy, something that is pain to do with a custom ROM.
I am not even sure what's available and what it would improve for the Lumia, so maybe I am in the "been there, done that" phase. Lol

When I was still on Windows Mobile 6.x devices, I would spend hours, days, weeks perfecting my own "tuneup" scripts for all the HTC devices I ran. On PPCGeeks, I STILL get "thank you's" for the Touch Pro 2 Cleanup I released, and I haven't touched that in years now!
I never got into ROM cooking or flashing, but the CABs were the cheap man's flashing, because of the extensive depth of registry tweaking and file manipulation that I did. I took that approach for the benefit of people like myself who couldn't unlock and flash custom ROMs for whatever reason.
The thing that took me away from it was generally work and/or getting a new device.

For a few years, I spent a lot of time playing with embedded electronics, programmable microcontrollers and whatnot. It was definitely a hobby that required having a spare microprocessor on stock, you know, just in case. :)
