I finally was able to admit that I had a problem. It started so harmlessly at first. You know, a quick peak to see what, if any, photos were added since my last visit. Then this was handled by the counter on the front page that automatically let me know how many were added since my last visit! I could handle it. I started experimenting with registrations and trying to match up the photos of planes I had with the photos on A.net. I kept track of aircraft owner and paint livery changes on a lot of aircraft. But I could handle it! I continued with keeping track of helicopters, military planes, general aviation, and an occasional home built.. But I THOUGHT I could handle it!.... BUT THEN...
I fell into the dark menacing world of A.Net Forums. I became obsessed with answering posts, I stayed up all night waiting for a response when I posted a question.."Why won't somebody answer me! Why? WHY?!!" I didn't understand it! "My questions were just as good as anyone else's? Oh look.. there have been 85 views on my question alone.. but NO replies! OH
GOD WHY?" I COULDN'T HANDLE IT
Luckily, my wife was able to talk me into getting away to going on a vacation where there were NO internet access places...ANYWHERE!
So I have been "sober" now for almost 2 months and I attend "AA" (A.netters Anonymous) every week.
