My login name is NITPICKER and I, uh I AM, uh um oh oh urp, I AM A POSTAHOLIC!!.
Sure, it started out as social inking (virtual inking of course),
just one or two inks a day to relieve some tension and enjoy some interaction.
I simply had to ink. And ink. And ink.
And then, as I was working on my addiction, I had an argument with another poster, something I very much dislike.
So I said I would refrain from posting for a while, (without defining while!). Other poster has also held back from posting until today.
So my question is, do you think posting can be addictive? Do any of you think you have a problem?
Is posting addiction something bad?
Even at my peak, I never approached the giddy heights of the champ. (we all know who that is). But I don’t think he is a postaholic, but an actual social inker.
I will lurk back and watch this thread, if one develops.
Meanwhile, excuse me, I have some pent up posting to do.March 26, 2012 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #1035356cherrybimParticipant
No, I can quit anytime; I’ve done it many times.March 26, 2012 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #1035357☕️coffee addictParticipant
Get out while you still can (if you can)March 26, 2012 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #1035358
Yes- it is!! finally when i had no access to a computer for months at a time- it helped- now its back- but i’ve learned to limit myself- which is very hard because i am one of those quiet people who have a lot to say- but not in public where you know who i am!March 26, 2012 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1035359ZeesKiteParticipant
No. It’s not at all addictive. I can stop whenever I want. I just don’t want to, right now. Or in the near foreseeable future.March 27, 2012 12:57 am at 12:57 am #1035360SayIDidIt™Participant
You have a serious issue. I suggest you see a therapist and get some pills to help you with this issue.

Mods why are you allowing posters to probe other posters identity?March 29, 2012 1:58 am at 1:58 am #1035374
goq- because she is not trying to figure out who i am- merely, if she knows me- and obviously i am fine with that if i am answering- no one else can figure out who i am by this info- and most of my friends already know who i amMarch 29, 2012 2:03 am at 2:03 am #1035375cinderellaMember
I was a tad addicted when I first joined but I got over it.

i was addicted for a while but when “The Powers That Be” decide to block me for some reason it got me to stop caring. as you can see i just made a new account but now i just post very occasionally. you can ask them to block you if you are too addicted and you think that might help.

BYG you dont know who this person is or what their motives are you have given alot of information about yourself this is potentially very dangerous.October 14, 2014 6:55 am at 6:55 am #1035379SayIDidIt™Participant
I know I am addicted, but,
Every time I saw a new thread, or saw a comment about which I
thought I could add something, I felt a very powerful urge to ink. And I did so.
I simply had to ink. And ink. And ink.
I didn’t reach such a high madragah!
Yet.October 14, 2014 8:40 am at 8:40 am #1035380
