    Helloooo. My name is Boomers and I'm an ABW Addict. [Response: Hellooo Boomers]

    A few weeks ago I binged three straight days on ABW stopping only for sleep. I ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING ELSE!

    In another thread yesterday(oh, it's past midnight; day before yesterday) I admitted my ABW addiction. I was gently and politely directed to an old thread for help. Thanks for your well intentioned encouragement Alan, but unfortunately it only served to deepen my addiction. I learned that there is a long tradition of ABW addiction with many regulars quietly coping (or not) with their problem. The A.A. thread is a safe place for you to voice your addiction in an environment free from fear of condemnation where you can begin your journey to freedom from guilt.

    Information on A.A.
    ABW Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problems and help others to cope with information overload, idea overflow, and irresistible temptation to post in the cancel thread. The only requirement for membership is a desire to become a friendly and responsible community member, helping others on THEIR journey.

    Welcome to the ABW Addict club, Mr. Ed. ,

    Look at the bright side, you might have overindulged yourself for just three straight days on ABW stopping only for sleep, but at least you have taken the first step, by admitting your addiction in less than two full months here.

    Now, don't go try to claim any on your lousy three days record, because there I have you beat down for the days count, a few times over.

    I'm on my advanced steps on my ABW Addiction by now, but I am going to tell you a secret , when I first got here, I had a few whole weeks of nothing but ABW for the entire week (reasons for many of my first few bad posts), but it took me over a year and to realize that I was getting too adictive to ABW, I even posted about that somewhere before, I didn't look for that post now.

    So while you may not qualify for any for just thee days, you do qualify for at least a , or some other , but nothing less than an ABW to say the least. Because not too many others ABW members here, are willing to admit to their ABW Addiction like we have done in a public forum, and you did it in record time.

    --------

    As to not accomplishing nothing else while getting buried here, I would like to disagree with that. While it's true that while we may be here 100% of the time reading, posting, fighting, playing, or just killing time, I am glad to be here, even if by being here for too many hours in a row I don't have any new work done, because I think that while I may lose some extra time to make some extra money while I am here, I also think that by being here I might make extra money be learning what's new, or by just learning what to avoid and thus not lose any money with bad actors I might not be aware of yet.




    -----------

    Hang in there Mr. Ed. , we're not alone!

    Ok.. here's a first pass at a group prayer,

    God, grant me

    * the serenity to deal with the board spammers, people not willing to search, and in general those people that disagree with what I have to say,

    * the courage to accept the fact that other users may occassionally be right,

    * the wisdow and humility to admit when I'm wrong, or at least acknowledge that there might be a better way than what I use to do something.

    * and most importanty, enough common sense to occassionally get up from the keyboard, rest my eyes, and secure enough food and drink to keep myself nourished during my addictive periods of ABW reading.

    Yep, at least until my monitor starts emitting smoke.
    Fresh coffee; well, since each member brews their own, it's kind of up to them. Here fresh coffee is at the very top of the priority list!
