You know you're addicted to TFP when....

Ok So I started this thread hoping to find other addicted TFPers...

When have you become aware that you were addicted to either TFP or the internet?



I knew I was addicted to TFP when I caught myself doing this more than once, I would get out of the shower, in my towel, and sit in front of the computer first, before getting dressed or anything... and seeing what happened while I was in the shower.

Now that I've typed it out, it doesn't sound that bad... but anyways... There's your topic talk amongst yourselves

i know what you mean Bondagegirl, the other day my little brother broke his upper leg really really badly and the first thing i thought when my dad told me over the phone was "i wonder if this would make a good TFP thread"
then i felt guilty

Addicted like I am with other creatively stimulating influences in my life.

I like 'em, I like 'em a LOT! ...

But alas, I do not have the time to indulge ALL my pleasures at once. So I reduce myself to a bit here and a bit there of all of them.

I'll know I'm addicted when I can type quick enough on IRC with TFP's .


EDIT:
PS. Ignore what it says under my Alias. I am NOT an ADDICT. I have not got a problem...

I deny the existence of denial!!!

When you start referring to it in your conversations IRL...

"Ya know...I was talking about that very thing in a thread on the TFP..."
or
"there was this weird topic I was reading..."
and so on.

i realised i was addicted when i found myself doing exactly what Rogue and Meri said.

my friends have absolutely no idea about what this internet thing is (except of course those who are here), so conversation about whats going down on the TFP is pretty one-sided.

oh, and i find myself saying IMO, or other internet terms in conversations as well.

Your computer has a major failure, and the first thing you do when you get back online is head straight for the tfp.

Yeah, I did that.

When TFP is the first thing you check in the morning and the last thing you see before you got to bed.
When you try to get other people hooked on TFP.
When you sit down to check it for a couple of minutes and suddenly realize it is five hours later.

Not that I've done anything like that....

I still think my obsession runs farther then you other tfp’rs.

I shit you not…

I get up, in my chair… while my bed is being made up I make a rush to tfp to see if I have any PMs and scan boards.

Three mins later I bathe.

30 mins later tfp is back up
for hours unless I’m writing or making sad attemps of html.

I do this all. All night. I have gotten where I turn my tv off and will even mute the stereo if I’m reading something important.

I have quit playing all games on the pc almost entirely cuz I might miss something.

I send the last bits of $$$ in in fear that it will crash and the folk won’t have the funds to revive it.

Half of my buddy list on AIM are tfp’rs.

My best friend, Quo8, has heard TONS about it when he is here.

And……. Drummroll… I have neglected the titty board for the threads! Yes the tb is part of tfp but it’s still different.

I have never once donated $ to a site. I’ve never volunteered to help besides modding maybe five boards in my decade of internet life.

And on a silly serious mushy note… I am home. people here accept me. I don’t feel unwanted. I was on bbs’ for 10 years and never felt wanted. I do here. (except one or two but that’s fine.)

I love it.

First time I realized it, was truly during the first of Halx's "evil-black-screen-of-death" messages when the site was slow. Was that just a short time ago now?! No logging on.....WTF?!
I sat down.....and....gasp....no TFP. The first thing I did....phone another member to see if it was just me! that's when I knew I was hooked!
My best bud (who led me here) and I will talk all the time about "threads" and drop TFP names and we get that "what the hell are you two talking about" look from people that overhear us! *giggles

*EDIT....and the other time I realized I was hooked....when I was uber sad at home, bawling my eyeballs out and my first thought was to pm one of the TFP ladies who I knew would understand.....I never did (damn pride!) but that's when I realized these were my friends, part of me...part of my life now!
I'm already wondering what to do when going away for the TFP get-together in Vegas....who's bringing a lap-top anyways?

When you spend 7 hours a day on the site, 5 of which have replaced sleep. Been there, done that.

When you skip school to catch up on threads after being away for three days. Yep, that too.

When I was in Virginia for a week, I started having dreams about surfing the TFP.

Rather sad.

Oh, and on many different occaisons I've meant to go to a website, but typed in "tfproject.org" instead out of reflex. On many of those occasions, I've forgotten to go the original intended website altogether and just ended up surfing the TFP for several hours.
