I know I am! How about you? Here are a few signs of an addict. Feel free to add your own. If you stay up until your eyes can not stay open one more second even though you have to get up in...OMG 4 hours, then you are an addict. If you skip meals to see who has responded to your discussions, you are an addict. If you have cramps in your hands from typing,you may be an addict. If you 'hold it' as long as possible, just to read one more thread, you are an addict. If mylot is the first thing you think of in the morning, you are an addict. If you are logged in all day long, you are an addict. If you have ever ordered pizza so you could respond instead of cook, you are an addict. If you have ever started something cooking and then realized the house was filled with smoke because you got caught up in a good thread and forgot, you are an addict. Hello. My name is Tammyr and I am a mylot-aholic. Please accept me as I am. The first step is admitting you have an addiction. Will stand and share with us

Yeah, it took 2 hours, but they were all drinking and I had to drive, so it kept me from drinking with them.

No I WAS addicted to it once. But now a days, my activities have become less and I should say very less becausae my studies are getting harder and harder and My exams are coming nearer and nearer. So, I have to Put my full concentrations on my studies as a result I have very much less time to spend here at my lot

Do you follow Gabs around? I see you two posted together often! I turn my computer on, go pee, enter my pass word, get daughter up, fix cereal, log on to mylot, get dressed and fix lunch, then read and post till time to take her. When I get back( I am laid off right now) I stay on-line all day posting between doing chores and things around the house, pick her up and come back. I am logged in all day, but come and go, between tasks.

I've just started on mylot, but already I see the first signs of addiction raising its ugly head. Well, not really. I used to waste a lot of time watching t.v. Now I'm using it to communicate with other people and learn a lot about other countries and earn some income. So bring on the addiction!

I would probably be more addicted if I had a faster internet connection. I get tired and nervous because it takes everything so long to load properly.

Ah the perils of dial-up! I, too, have the dreaded dial-up. =o{ Maybe one day we shall both have something better. 5 months, almost 950, I think you may be okay.

I liked this discussion. My addiction is not restricted to just to my lot. But sure I'm an addict.I'm an addict to work in general. DearTammyr you 've been accepted since long as one of the sensible discussion posters of my lot . I reiterate that I really liked this post. Now Tammyr,its your turn to declare the verdict. "Am I a Mylot Addict?"

Arlerambabu, my friend I have been wondering about you! Good to see you here! I see several clues to your addiction, you should be very careful! Do try to be careful!

I think I'm far from being addicted to myLot, simply because most of the time I have too many things to do than logging into myLot and posting. And another reason is probably because I'm not really a frequent poster on the forum.

Denial is common in addiction. But because you have only a 35 I think you are exempt, for now. You too may come back when you get addicted.

You post on mylot during your lunch break. If you talk on the phone and post responses to your friends questions. You do several things at once to make more time for mylot posting.

Roflmao X2! You forgot to stand up and introduce yourself. Do you post your real life friends questions as discussions? I am still laughing. I can't see! I don't usually pick so quickly, but I can not stop laughing! So you get BEST response for the laugh!! Was it as funny as I found it or am I just giddy from lack of sleep?

I am having a mylot withdrawal--Haven't been able to go here as much as I want to, & it definitely is making me feel bad =(. Just lots of stuff going around outside the online world. But now, it's 5am & have been here for 2 hours now, trying to redeem myself ;) So, since I am not able to go online as much...I do the next best thing--list down possible topics for discussion! Spare time I've got, if I'm not writing it down, I'm thinking it--uh-oh!! Mylot addiction?? You decide...

I don't think I'm that addictive to mylot. I got other things to do and unfortunately I cannot spend the whole day sitting and typing at mylot. However I will visit mylot regularly from time to time, yes I know it's addictive but I am not.

I too have had a few days of being bored of late. I just get tired of wading through the same thing over and over. There are many good threads but you must see a lot of trash to get to them.

Hello, my name is Amy and yes I am addicted! Here is my addition to this... You know your addicted when you hurt your hand have to get stitches and you still come on here even if it takes you 5 minutes to type one sentence! You know your addicted when your boyfriend complains that you are not spending enough time with him(which he has never done before) and he's not getting annoyed at you for talking to much but at the fact that he is sick of hearing the typing sound!(thats because I am what they might call a bit of a talker..lol.and that's an understatement) You know your addicted when you talk about mylot and your friends on a daily basis to people in your life as if they were a part of it and were right there when you posted that last response and your the only one that laughs and finds that amusing! This was too funny, thanks for telling me about this, i had a good laugh :)

Welcome to our club. I am sure you will find that this is a harmless addiction, as long as you can still remember your kids, and job, oh and housework!
