Addicted to your computer
    #1553971 - 05/16/03 02:18 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

So how many of you are addicted like me? I'll sit in front of this damn computer for hours on end, just to keep from being bored. And these forums, jesus, they're like a fucking crack addiction. If I don't get my fix for a day I'll go to bed with nervous twitching and sweat.  :mad:  :grin:

I'm gonna attempt to take a weeklong break. Seven days with no mp3s, no games, no email, no IM, no internet, and no porn! :shocked:

...Eh, I'll start tomorrow. :wink: Who thinks I'll cave in?

I dunno if you'll cave. I feel so lowly because the computer is my only addiction.
Im constantly reading, and listening to MP3's, so im ALWAYS on it, if im in my house, im on the computer..

Good luck to you. You'll have to fill it with drugs.

Good question. I do know, for a fact, that the Shroomery (my only non-work computer activity) does keep me from doing other things. It's really a matter of finding balance, and much like cocaine or heroin, it's damned hard to find that balance sometimes...

I think with forums, especially active ones like this, the problem is that it is interactive and global (so it's a 24 hour a day show). You can literally sit here for days reading people's little pearls of wisdom, and posting your own, in this virtual community. It can be a real problem... :crazy:

I occasionally think of signing up for a MMOG like Ultima On-Line, EverQuest, or Star Wars Galaxies (when it comes out of beta), but if I do, I also know that will be the end of me, as I can remember back in the early '80s playing Ultima II, III, and IV for weeks on end. Those games were worse than crack! :shocked:

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

You realize, you just bumped a decade-old thread from 2003 right?

Anyway, I suppose I'm in the same boat as you on the topic of the thread. meh

He's commending me for using an older thread rather than making a new one.

Ha I didn't even notice.
This seems like a modern day thread.

OP was ahead of their time.

Fragmental pieces of timeline are now operating your mental consciousness"
