Me, too. Can you use a timer to help walk away from the computer for a while?

I'm addicted to computer itself.
It has everything, my entertainment, my books, my friends, my work, my information and encyclopedias and WP!
I think I'm using it 16-18 hours a day. But I have to admit, just seeing the streets where I live disgusts me. So, I don't have much alternative here.

I check WP all the time, but rarely feel that I can answer, since I don't want to offend people, or say the wrong thing. But I check WP multiple times a day... I know how you feel.

It comes in waves. Sometimes I check several times a day (or hour) and answer just about anything. This will go on for a while, then poof! I'll have no interest at all for weeks or months at a time. Suddenly, I'll remember WP and pop back on, just to see what's happening, and the whole thing starts all over again. This is how I am with most things that interest me, though.

Me too, mainly because it gives me a lot of joy to be able to talk with my kin which I don't really have in my daily life.

I have the very same thing. Is this ADHD? I don't know.
But that's why I have so little replies even though I'm a member since 2007.

We have all found a place that accepts us for who we are, not what society wants us to be. In my book, that is something to be addicted to. However, with that said, it is never healthy to take things to the extreme, or at least that is what I tell my self, but I am pretty good at being on the edge of extreme.

I've also recently become obsessed with this place. It's the only site I can go to and post about my weird issues where other people won't think they are actually weird :)
