    My name is my Michelle and I am an Allnurses addict. I LOVE this board, my personal feeling is you can't spend TOO much time here! Like everyone else, I would probably have DT's if I couldn't come here at least once a day and check out what's going on!

    I'm embarrassed to say how many times a day I check in here! I just moved three days ago, the phone company screwed up, and consequently I couldn't get on the Internet for three whole days. It was awful! And pathetic!

    I'm defiantly an addict. I check the board twice a day, before and after work. Even when I don't have a question, I still learn a lot from other peoples questions. Even when I went back to Ireland, I checked in as often as I could from an Internet cafe. This site is the best.

    I am very much addicted to this

    I have been looking for a forum where nurses can speak and give there opinions on their career. I used to go to all the state nursing associations' websites and look for some sort of forum...and I never found it.

    I have learned so much..and I know I have only scratched the surface.

    Thanks to the person(s) who founded this website, and thanks to all the nurses who participate and give priceless information to people like myself who have decided to follow in your footsteps!!!

    Hi, my name is Berta. I am an allnurses site addict. I check it at least twice a day sometimes more. Sometimes I just lurk, other times I post. Somedays, I just won't get off my soapbox.

    This is sad to say...but I think I'm becoming addicted. As first I was just coming on as a guest and then I decided to join in. I'm here at home and work. It's VERY informative. I love it

    Well, we can look at our "allnurses addiction" this way: At least it won't kill us like drugs, alcohol, too much of anything that is poison in the body.

    Addictive, most definately.

    Typically while I'm online i keep my user CP on and refresh it to see if there are any new replies. Then i go to a few of the boards i regularly check out and check for new threads. Then go to the home page to see what new posts might be listed there.

    I was gone for 20 hours yesterday. I missed 30 replies total to my subscribed threads and 54 new threads. Took me an hour to catch up .

    But i'd rather be addicted to this clean, decent, educational site than some random chat room full o' pervs .
