Do Find These Boards Addictive???

  1. I have to admit that I am finding these message boards becoming addictive. The funny thing about it is my significant other and I have had many conversations about the fact that he would stay up until like 2 or 3 (sometimes later) in the morning to surf and post on stangnet ( a site for mustang message boards) I felt "ignored' sometimes as I usually end up going to sleep long before he does.. As I have discovered these boards, I think I know now why he stays up so late. I still go to sleep about the same time I always have, but my day time hours are increasing in these rooms and boards. INTERESTING READING!!

    Anyone else find this as a problem??

    Uhhhh. Yeahhhhh!!!!!

    I know I'm addicted. I can't go a day without checking the boards. I've told all my nurse friends about All Nurses, but they don't appear to be as excited about them as me.

    There is a lot of good information on these boards and it has been a wonderful resource for me.

    Addicted? I'm not addicted (just cause I called my ISP 12 times in the 15 minutes I couldn't log on to the net?) -

    No way am I addicted - (So what if I have subscribed to every thread and have my e-mail notifying me every single time anyone replies to any thread listed on the entire board?) -

    btw - Isn't there a 12 step program called AA? (Allnurses Anonymous)

    Hi, my name is glascow and I'm an addict.
    I work 12 hour night shifts and come home and get on the internet.
    For example, it's 1pm, I probably should be sleeping.
    I truely believe I could disconnect if I wanted to, but I'm just not ready.
