I think I am addicted

  1. Nov 5, 2004 #1
    I am addicted to Physics Forums.

    Is there a known cure for this -- perhaps good -- disease?

    Perhaps i should get a life... :frown:

    Nope, no known cure, but we have a large support group :biggrin:

    Hi. My name's Jonathan, and I have a problem.

    (everyone in unison) "Hi Jonathan."

    PF is such an addiction. All I can think about is doing school work and nothing but that. Damn, you PF for making me want to be a nerd!

    Wait, a minute. I was already like that.

    A cure for your disease:
    Just hit your head to the monitor and then stretch your hair.
    It will work.

    Just because I visit this page everytime I get online, 16-25 times a day and go through withdrawls if away for more than 24 hours. That doesn't mean I'm addicted. I'm sure lots of people wake up in the middle of the night to pee and on the way back to bed stop to see if anyone has responded to their latest post. I'm sure lots of people begin 85% of their conversations, "On PhysicsForums the other day I...."

    That's just someone who is interested in something. A hobby. Not an addiction. Oh no. Not an addiction.

    although I have gotten really strung out and started going up to strangers begging for a handout.
    "Cmon man, please. Just 5 minutes is all I need. Let me us your laptop for just 5 minutes."

    I've come very close to doing that. When I had a vacation at the beach, I tried to use AOL to log on, but it took so damn long to log on and when I finally did it would always cut me off after about five minutes. That nearly kept me from going into withdrawals.

    I tried the PF patch, but it didn't work worth a darn. Gave me a rash, too. :grumpy:

    I was going to tell you this in private, but the rash isn't from the patch. I've got some lotion that'll clear it up though.

    Aahh I actually said the quoted phrase to a person a few days ago. I feel like such a nerd :shy: .
