Addictive personality? Very lost right now.

My whole life I have always felt like I never belonged...anywhere. Not at home, not at work, not with girlfriends or friends. But when I became part of a team or club of some sort, I would always feel like I belonged..but then I became obsessed with this particular thing, whether it be basketball or a video game or anything such as this.
So much obsessed that even after a warning from my higher-ups at work, I still went onto a website that I was told not to, and got a suspension from work. I feel horrible about it, and no matter how much I try, not matter how much I do, I can't seem to be in control of this obsession of mine. I have talked to therapists before and they haven't done anything but make me feel horrible for being this way. Can anybody suggest anything or maybe some insight on what I might do to correct this?
