And how can I get help?

Hello, my name is Stephnnie and I think I'm addicted to martialtalk.com

What should I do?

And if you tell me to see a doctor...I don't know what I will do, but it will be really, really bad. :xtrmshock

Stephanie,

Please accept this internet *HUG*.

Welcome to the club. :D ;)

You can get involved with being a mentor or just posting, but in the cold weather it is common for people to spend more time on line. Also in January and February more disagreements will occur with the "Cabin Fever" effect in place.

Try not to get too burned out so you leave and do not come back. But post what you can, and if you find you spend too much time and not enough time doing other stuff, then set a time limit and an alarm clock to remind you when to sign off for the day and you can come back for tomorrow.

Always enjoy the posting, for if it becomes work or tiresome then you will not enjoy it. :)


Thanks

There are worse things to be addicted to. ;) We're glad you're here and just as addicted to the site as the rest of us.

This site is addictive. My wife seems to think I spend more time on it than paying attention to her, sometimes.
BTW welcome to MT

No need to fear, Stephannie, MT addiction is a normal reaction to encountering a forum where many arts are discussed by many artists without there being all that much blood spilt on the floor :D.

Good advice from Rich above to which I would add that steering clear of the Study when it gets too hot might be a good idea as it does rather tend to shatter the calm :lol:.

There is a cure.

It involves religion... and probably relocating.

How do you feel about black and brown clothes? NO electricity? Big families? Lancaster, PA?

I mean -- we've never had an Amish MT member yet... so they probably can help.

The Amish life....or Women of the the Martial Arts....

Tough decision!

Am I too old for Rumspringe?

Guess it's Women of the the Martial Arts! Thanks, Kacey!
