Here it is almost 1 am and I'm sleepy, but I keep saying just one more post, lets read some more, oh that one looks good, just one more response. Yes its late, but one more won't hurt. LOL I plop down in this chair planning to be here a few minutes and it runs into hours. Do any of you have this problem also?

There's a real psychology involved to this site. For those of us who can't get out and about in the world like we used to it keeps us connected to our fellow humans without having to walk or drive somewhere. We can sit in front of our computers as comfortable as we want to be. We don't have to dress up or do our hair. We can look bad or feel miserable and people actually want to talk to us. Then there's the numbers and the stars and the non-stop running soap operas complete with CLIFFHANGERS! There's people who have the same problems that we do and can truely understand how we feel. Sometimes a sympathetic ear or a swift kick in the tush if we need it can really help. You are definitely NOT alone in your addiction!

Yes I'm sure thats part of it. Since I'm stuck at home every day this is a connection to the world. Thanks for responding :)

My blood pressure starts to go up if I stay up late so I don't stay up late myLotting. But you could say I'm addicted considering that anytime spent on myLot is thrown away for pennies. Aren't are lives worth more than that? Why do we myLot? We are addicted!

Yes considering the amount of hours I've had to be here to earn $13.21 it does seem a waste of time. But it is fun. Thanks for replying.

Hi Tess, I think we all do this. Last night I said midnight as a deadline to go up to bed, I didn't get home from work though until 11pm and before I knew two hours had past. Yes you are addicted! Eventually though your body will tell you and you will have burnout and need to rest and play catch up on that. One more response, LOL if only eh, 10 maybe 20 later and tired. Have a great day today and I hope your late night doesn't affect you too much. Ellie :D

Hi my friend, Your singing to the choir sweety! I get on MyLot thinking I'll just be on here for a little while and then I'll go do my other chores, etc. and it never happens! Before I know it, I'm on here hours and hours.... I don't have any idea what to tell ya gal. As long as you enjoy it, and you don't have to get up early in the morning, then go for it! Have a nice night, Char
