    Well apparently when I signed up 14 months ago I didnt think so but now that I have come back and taken the time to start learning all about this great place I am finding myself addicted.

    How many of you feel you are addicted to writing, thinking, writing, tweaking lol.

    Are you kidding?  This is absolutely addicting.  Why else would I be here to answer this question in the first place?  Cause I can't get enough.  Gotta go work on my next hub.

    Me, too.  Completely hooked.  There's so much to do, check, tweak.  Check hub scores, check hubber score, check traffic on account, check earnings, read comments, read hubs, recheck all of the above, read forum posts, post forum post, go back and watch for reply.  Ugh.  Cannot stop.  Now I will wait for the next post on this topic.  Grrr...

            Admitted I am powerless over HubPages, that my life has become unmanageable.

            Came to believe a power greater than myself could relieve me of my Hubaholism.

    It is addicting.   I only write Hubs in my spare time, but the rest of the time I'll just leave HubPages up in a separate window and keep popping back and forth, just to see what has gone on.  In the middle of writing something if I just want to take a little break I'll pop back on HubPages again.  It's multi-tasking.  smile

    I have never had an addictive personality, however, after joining this group, yes, yes, and more yes's that I am totally and utterly addicted to writing,talking with you all, thinking, writing, tweaking, processing, answering and then more writing.

    The thing is when you start writing contents, it'll become addictive. Otherwise, don't.

    I was addicted so I joined “writers anonymous.” Now I’m still fighting it everyday but have learned to control it.

    Not many can understand this. Is every writer on Hubpages using Google Analytic?

      No. I never understood Google analytics and find it less than useless.

      My best bet is they're hidding! The marvev-hubpages marriage factor that.                                                   Not long ago, two such writers here surface up. D'you have a word for such?

    Many, many writers have left over the years. For many different reasons.
