    i am addicted, i admit to it, i can't wait till my next fix. I'm always looking for stuff and spend all my money on the stuff as well, some of the stuff is good some not so good. then i look for a place to use the stuff, some places are not real nice to be in while others are fantastic. i will stay out all night using my stuff and most days not doing my chores at home. I think about my next fix at work and can't wait till i can get off and get my stuff and get my fix. My wife does understand my addiction and how it affects my life, she even send me out to get a fix so not to drive every one up the wall. this addiction is not drugs but it has the same stimulation. of coarse i talking about catfishing . I have other addictions too waterfowl hunting, they say the first step to a cure is admitting your addiction now if anyone can lead me to a hobby that will take my time up so i will not crave this addiction, hey wait that will just become another addiction.

    We evryone has their vice, but it sounds to me that you should hang on to that one. After all if you went on the wagon what would be left to talk about on the catfish forum:tounge_out:

    like golf. Son fishing is to cigarettes as golf is to herion. That's an addicting sport. She's a cruel mistress too, boys. You put that much energy and time into her practicing and nurturing that relationship and she smacks you right in the face all afternoon. Then when you've about had enough she lets you hole out a wedge on 18 for birdie and you're right back in her silky razor bladed hands all over again.

    She also fails to mention that I only go fishing once every two weeks, and don't spend more than an hour on the computer at a time much anymore. So :tounge_out:! Moderation is the key to keeping your addictions under control.

    We blame fate for other accidents, but we feel personally responsible when we make a hole in one.

    "Much any more" meaning the last few days since I booted him off so I could have it to myself.
