Remember James “Sonny” Crockett?

In the 1980s, Crockett would have been the vice I would have indulged in but I digress…

On this #WriterWednesday, I’m taking this opportunity to ask you for ideas/opinions on “vices”.

I’m fleshing out a character and I need to give that character a few faults or vices.

So here is my question to you:

What vice would you indulge in if it had no negative side effects?

Or what vices would you find interesting for a male fictional character who comes from a wealthy family, is very intelligent but who has no backbone when it comes to standing up to them?

  1. Hmm. How about trolling sleazy internet hookup sites? His casual hookups could bring him some surprising info about a family member or two.

    As for a vice for me…that’s a toughie because vices can usually be expensive, and I hate parting with my money! 😄

  2. I would smoke! I am not a big drinker and smoking always seemed like something social to do at a bar if you didn’t want to get wasted. In my early 20s I would smoke socially occasionally. But, you know, lung cancer and stink. He could smoke while his ladies drink a little too much. If his family is a bunch of drinkers he could use their inebriation, and his lack of, to get dirt on them. Of course they would judge his nasty habit…

  3. Personally if I was going to indulge it would be expensive whisky and cigars, but for your character?

    Well, he’s rich so reverse the usual dynamic and give him an addiction to slumming it. Sleazy dives and bar room fights. He gets a kick (no pun intended) out of the violence, both giving and receiving. To keep it secret from his family he has an arrangement with a make up artist who covers it all up and secretly adores him but he doesn’t see it.

    Hell, I like him already.
