    I've decided I am. We didn't have electricity yesterday and I was getting serious withdrawal symptoms.

    So, are you addicted? And is it anything in particular? Hubbing, blogging, email, twitter etc.

      I use to be, but now its just plain boring. I belonged to a few message boards that have out grown themselves, the one I liked the most charges a per month fee to view most forums, not worth my $$ 

      Facebook, lost its appeal about 3 weeks into it after I found most of my friends LOL

    My router went a few months back, and the withdrawal discomfort was kind of disturbing.   Apparently, though, even "addiction" can run its course; because these days I'm kind of going through something similar to that "I can't find anything on tv" thing we often get.  I can't believe I'm just kind of sick of everything online, but I am.  hmm

    Apparently, most folks have already seen this since it was shared (by ralwus) in a comment on one of frog's hubs, but I thought I'd paste it here. Who believes it?

    I don't so much find it as boring, as I just feel like I'm burned out.  I've been writing my head off (for other people, for myself, and then more for myself) for about three years now, solid.  Then, because I haven't been "inspired" to write, I've ended up coming onto forums or whatever else, just to look for inspiration (or else take a break from the serious writing).  Last night I started a new blog, thinking that would add a little boost.  I got the look of it set up and just couldn't write.  I used to actually go to "doll making" sites when I'd start to run out of steam.  That's done too.  (I do, however, have disks with an entire dance recital, a Swan Lake presentation, and a beauty pageant - all in dolls from those sites and my own fashion creations.  smile  )  (The next thing for me, I'm thinking, is basket-weaving at the home.  lol  )

    Well I guess it is an addiction but in all honesty I do a fairly nice amount in business so it really is a healthy addiction and the nice thing about it is I can turn it off to spend time with wife, family and friends and so forth.

    So you decide if mine is an addiction
