    I do. No matter what I say to myself, "Max, 15minutes and that's it!" I always end up going past those minutes.

    "Just a little bit more..." I say.

    One thing I've learnt...it never is "a little" wink

    This happens to me sometimes, especially when there are a few good threads going. Then I just settle in for a good muck about with the other patients of this particular asylum tongue

    Initially when you join, the forums seem like the most amazing place to be, and you find yourself completely drawn in. You make friends... can't stop reading the threads... there are moments too when you find yourself laughing at jokes even after you've logged off! (I know.. but it happens...)

    With time, however, a lot of it gets repetitive, the 'charm' wears off...and you settle down to the occasional post here and there. And that too varies from day to day, and how much time you have on your hands. The trick is to take breaks, steer clear of the  'drama' or you can even end up with 'forum overdose'.. where you literally can't take another day of it!

    Of course, it all varies from person to person, so let's see how it goes with you... welcome here and enjoy... (we'll exchange notes in a few months time - hopefully, positive ones! wink
