I feel I am slowly becoming addicted to Hubpages. If nothing better to do, I find myself wandering into the pages here. A lot of lively discussions, passion-bound people like Mark Knowles, Earnestshub, though holding diametrically opposite views to mine, especially in religious matters, draw me here.
Dissent is what it is all about, I guess. In real life, you face people face to face and you some time shy away from arguing with them, you are so tired and bored and lack the will to stand up to them. The facility this forum offers is that you do not have to face your opponents directly. You just type anything you feel like and wait for some one to go for your jugular and ENJOY it.
Has anything to do with psychology have something to do with this attitude? I do not know...................
I find myself on hubpages while I'm at work, just browsing away...
I always look forward to reading hubs and enjoy them, but I don't regard this as addiction. Your attitude about hubbing as a better forum to air your dissent is healthy and very normal, as far as I understand. Psychologically, however, if it gives you extreme pleasure because you do as you do, I mean- release your stimulus and wait what happens, how you take the return comment/reactions lies the difference. If you only enjoy what you expect is parallel to your line of thinking, but abhor those that negate, I think something is defeated. I hope you understand. This is only my wild opinion.
I know the feeling, I am always browsing and trying to find new topics to write about..
I find myself becoming addicted from time to time but then I get a tag from someone in the 'outside' world and remember that I am supposed to be doing other things! Or my 1 year old malamute comes and yanks me away from my computer to go for a walk or just to play and I remember again 'ah - that other life'.
I think we can all become addicted to the writing AND the reading if we let ourselves because it is fascinating. However, in all things, I think balance is really important - and I find that by living my 'other life' I have more to write about! That is a good thing.
Of course, if another contest comes along, I shudder to think what shall happen to me.....
Okay, I'll admit to Kmackey being addicted to HubPages. She told me once before.
Funny thing is I have a hub called hubpages is addictive.. lmao
Weird.... And I am supose to be working... lol
I would say I'm addicted, but I seriously need to concentrate on my hosted blogs more, because I have more control over my own domain name and sites, but I'm still here though.....!!
I am definitely not addicted. I have been here almost eight weeks and have only written a very few hubs and this is my very first post in the forums. Am I doing this right?
Ummmm, I think you are fibbing, I have read some of your posts... You are in denyal...
You are too funny. You are as addicted as thirdmillenium. I guess you like it here.
This is a place to get a reaction to your actions.

Are people becoming addicted to fantasy lives?between celebrity following, religion and cravings to be wealthy, it seems a lot of people want things that either aren't real or are more of a fantasy then a reality, is this due to laziness or are people just fed up with the lives they live or what?

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...
