Texaholic (Texas + -aholic)

“Texaholic” (Texas + -aholic) is a word that has been printed on many images. The term usually means a person who loves Texas, but can also mean someone from Texas who drinks a lot of alcohol (Texas + alcoholic).
     
“Direct from the Lone Star State, it’s the liquored-up lunacy of The Texaholics—a band name—was printed in the L.A. Weekly (Los Angeles, CA) on October 14-20, 1988.
     
“I’d have to say I’m more of a Texaholic than a Texpatriate” was printed in the Texas Monthly in May 1998. “Texaholic (teks a’hôlic): One who obsessively loves Texas and isn’t ashamed to show pride in the Lonestar State” was posted on Twitter by Texas Life on July 6, 2015. “Texaholic Texas Tee” (a T-shirt design that includes a long definition of the word) was posted on Twitter by Texas Two Boutique on March 9, 2017. “Texaholic = a person addicted to all things Texas! #bluebell #bluebonnets #waylonandwillie…” was posted on Twitter by The Texas Edge on March 29, 2017.
 
“Texaholic” was trademarked with a claimed first use on May 11, 2017.

THE LITTLE NASHVILLE CLUB
(...)
Tues.—Direct from the Lone Star State, it’s the liquored-up lunacy of The Texaholics.
 
May 1998, Texas Monthly, “The texpatriates” by Michael DiLeo, pp. 86-92:
Janet Peery’s relationship with the state is less ambivalent than Scofield’s or Hearon’s. “I’d have to say I’m more of a Texaholic than a Texpatriate,” she says with a laugh. “I just can’t seem to get enough of Texas. It’s a place like no other. You can go from Kansas to Colorado and the borders just blur, but when I see `Entering Texas,’ I feel my soul expand.”

I wish Texaholics & Californicators understood that 4Wd + speed = 4 wheel slide.

@chelseasaxe I turned the channel to MTV. It read “True Life: I’m a Texaholic.” Turns out it meant texting lover rather than a Texas lover..
