Commonalites among narcs

Hi everyone,

I recently went NC with my narc (Female) and will post my long, sad story in due course.

I have a question and was wondering if the below type of behavior is typical among narcs.

My N had an almost insatiable appetite for sleep. When she wasn't working she could quite easily spend 2 -3 (or more) days lying in bed, watching TV and sleeping on and off.
She also had a slew of pills in her travel bag which was always close to her side. This contained numerous sleeping pills (prescribed to her); Xanax and other anti-anxiety/depression tablets; and also pretty strong, over the counter pain killers, of which she'd automatically have 2 upon waking (in case she got a headache) and have 4 or more throughout the course of the day.
This also went hand in hand with binge drinking on weekends, as well as binge eating chocolates and biscuits.
Letting her loose among poker machines was also a recipe for disaster.
God! Not to mention her almost endless procrastination - it drove me nuts! Getting into an already drawn bath could take anywhere up to 3 hours!

I know most of what I've described above are typical symptoms of addictive personalities but I guess my main question would relate to the sleeping, the pill cocktails and procrastination. Is this typical?
