My addiction started when I was 12, just out of primary school...
Yours?

I think I read Tolkien for the first time when I was around 9 or 10, but I understood absolutely nothing!!!
I re-read LotR couple of years later (around 12 or 13, I believe) and feel madly in love :p So in terms of "addiction" I would say around that age.

Welcome to the forums!

Mine started when I started and finished Fellowship in 2016 when my sister was getting married. It consummated itself when I finished LOTR.

Now, I am reading The Hobbit, have to pick up The Silmarillion again.

But yeah!

Thanks :)
Once in a while I start all over again from the beginning, the Silmarillion, The Hobbit, LOTR and the Middle Earth Cycle, indeed consuming all of it :)

I first read The Hobbit when I was 12 or 13, but I didn't get hooked then. I had to read it for English class when I was 14 and fell in love with it. I have been addicted to Tolkien for 53 years and have no intention of stopping.
