    Default Internet Forum Addiction, Anonymous

    Hi.


    My name is Steve, and I have Internet Forum Addiction.

    My life has become unmanageable, and I need help, bad.

    I'm currently involving myself in my addiction right now

    and there's a probable chance I'll relapse in the next 10

    minutes. When I'm not working, I'm in plumbing forums.

    I've moved my fridgerator, my bathroom, my pantry all

    to within inches of reach from my keyboard. I've had to

    use my wastebasket at times for "emergencies" but I'll

    keep this thread sanitary. My gut used to hang over my

    legs, now I'm worried that my gut is starting to hang

    over my knees and I need help! I built A gratitude list

    but I think I ate it. There are no steps in my program

    so I guess I have to make amends, or start wearing

    depends.


    Please, share your addiction, let me know that I'm not

    the only one spending 84 hours a week in forums hunt-

    ing and gathering information, hoarding it like a squirrel.



    Please participate in the poll to gain the much needed

    help we all deserve.

    LOL

    Ya know it's bad when yer thinking of how to get a laptop in the truck with some kinda satelite access.

    Duly noted, most of the plumbers I have come to know in these forums are sole props like myself, fantastic way to stay abreast of current stock, fixtures...just not code.
    No better way to exchange notes & idea's, in the real world I only bump into my competitors at the supply.


    Thats what I tell my wife at least....

    Talking a good way to vent

    when you can come here and vent about

    bill collection, employee problems, customer problems ect ect....

    that is good


    also , its a good way to keep up with what is going on plumbing wise..

    like all the pex pipe disasters and other issues.....


    and its good place to be educated about things like

    payroll resources for small business...inexpensive

    what you
    ought to have for a proper amount of insurance ect...

    what is a good business program to have for book keeping..




    and of course......

    its better than just talking to myself all day long.

    and I realize that I am not as squrrley as I thought I was...

    Me thinks Master Plumber Mark might be suffering from PEX Paranoia!

    Default Who spends the most time on here?

    I have just realised that I spend an awful lot of time on this forum. In the order of several hours each and every day.

    Who's the most dedicated/crazy/addicted?

    I get on here quite a bit but then again I work on a computer with 2 monitors. Sometimes I'm waiting for an answer to the project I'm working on or some other similar reason.
    I would say if it were clocked it would be a couple of hours a day but some of that time I'm not actually paying attention to that monitor.

    Well, I'm still pretty impressed that you give this forum an ENTIRE MONITOR!
