    No. But I do come everyday to find out the latest one-on-one fights.

    I know I have the tendency but my little ones prevent me from becoming addicted.  They always pull me out big_smile

    Well..right now I'm really addicted to HP! Though once I get busy in work.. it'll probably not be as addicting. smile

    No, it's only part of the way I make money online.

    I wouldn't call it 'addictive,' but it is a crucial part of my writing life.

    I originally joined back in January. I'm still addicted! I login morning and night to check my earnings and spend half my day either writing or in the forums.

    And that's along with working two jobs (or I am at the moment anyway), doing university and looking after my ten month old daughter. big_smile

    I would say that I am indeed possessed by Hubpages and it's community, I am here everyday either reading writing or in the forums. I love it.

    i am addicted...want some one to write hub called 'ten ways to give up addiction of hubpages'...

  10. Joy56 profile image78
    Joy56posted 7 years ago

    there was a time when i was absolutely addicted, it was everything to me.  It helped me through a really bad time when my mum died.  I was never earning money, just communicating and writing.... it was really helpful.  I have it in check now, i think.  I love to read the many hubs, there is never enough hours in the day to read enough.  I do like the forums but i never get involved in brawls anymore..... it is just not worth it.

    I just wrote a hub about it, you might enjoy it, too!

    Yeah, starting to get addicted. If I don't sign on at least once a day, my hands start shaking.

    But that's nothing compared to what the South American coal miners must be going through. Some of them are heavy smokers and alcoholics.
