Poll: Addictive or Addicting?

I've always thought the word for "habit-forming like a monkey on your back that you just can't shake" was "addictive". But lately I've seen a lot of people use "addicting". Here's an article about it. What do you think?

Which word are you more likely to use?


ETA: Wow, it's a shutout so far, 7-0 for "addictive". I thought "addicting" was getting to be popular as an alternate word, but I might be wrong.
