If you are hooked on something, you are crazy about it or you are addicted to it. You could be devoted to something or captivated by it. You could also be obsessed with something.

1. Some people are hooked on caffeine and they don’t even know it. These are some of the products that contain caffeine: Coca-cola, tea, coffee, chocolate & Red bull. You know that you are hooked on coffee when you can’t live without it: if you get headaches when you stop drinking it or if you are cranky (irritable) before your first cup of coffee in the morning.

2. I am hooked on a number of TV series. What TV programs are you hooked on?

3. “The US remains hooked on foreign oil primarily because OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries), especially Saudi Arabia and its neighbors, is skillful in its management of oil prices to maintain America's dependence.” – The Wall Street Journal.

4. Very few people are hooked on learning English as a hobby. Most people need to make a lot of effort and push themselves to learn because it’s a vital part of their career.

5. Are you hooked on Facebook? Do you check your Facebook wall obsessively for news?

6. From the moment I tried Açaí, I was hooked. Açaí is a tropical Brazilian fruit which comes from the Amazon. My favorite is Açaí ice-cream.

7. Someone who is an “adrenaline junkie” is hooked on/ addicted to adrenaline. They do dangerous things to feel an adrenaline rush, such as bungee jumping, sky-diving, surfing really big waves, cliff-diving, extreme sports, participating in the “running of the bulls” in Pamplona… or anything related to speed.
