I guess I never responded to this thread but I assure you my addiction goes back when it started

Re: Addicted

It's what I look at when I wake up and have my late morning coffee and it's the first thing I check when I get home from work at 12:20 AM. I'm a straight up addict though, so it's no surprise. When I stopped using hard drugs 14 years ago I just got addicted to other stuff (sex, porn, the internet.) My latest addiction is buying shit on ebay that I don't need but can't live without. The biggest change in my life since getting involved with this board is I masturbate a lot less. That was another addiction of mine. It used to be a daily occurance for me and now I'm lucky if I get three sessions in a week. I'm not trying to be funny, I'm totally serious. So yes, I'm addicted to this board. But it's a good addiction. This is some of the only social interaction I have in my life. You may find this hard to believe, but I'm actually a very shy, introverted, socialphobic person. I never bothered making any real friends when I moved to Florida 14 years ago because I was worried they would just turn out to be like my past friends (self-centered drug addicts.) So I have to rely on the internet for friendships. Kinda sucks, but I'm a complicated person.

Yeah, I'm a very honest person. Too honest for my own good I guess.

Guilty...I'm very addicted to this board! And before I discovered the board I was addicted to Furthur.net in general....always waiting to hear the next bit of news!

I love Furthur! And love meeting and talking to people who feel the same! And all the people who have gotten to see the Grateful Dead and Jerry, Keith, Brent, Vince, and especially Pigpen! Love learning from them and hearing their stories. It makes me happy! And smile there is so much history I'm trying to know about!!!

Thanks all for a good time!!

I'm here everyday. the level of conversation -- by and large -- is pretty thoughtful.
"Got any nails?"
"No!"
"Got any flies?"

I take pictures

Re: Addicted

#72884 3 years ago
cameras, old russian cameras, old german cameras, large format cameras, novelty japaneese cameras, lenses, film , devloping pictures with stuff like coffee (yes it works), dead malls, taking pictures in malls that are on the two year death march, from crowded hallways all the way to there is nothing left....you can almost smell when its starting to happen . Music, and albeit a dormant addiction the care keeping and breeding of African Cichlids. (these are fish), another dormant addiction is herpetology (the study and keeping of amphibians and reptiles). not enough space for the last two as expansive amounts of room are needed for both. gardening ,and sewing ........I suppose I am a bit of a geek.

That is why I am taking a self imposed, indefinite hiatus (after today). Life, + home front issues. Intervention time. Namaste.
