Intervention

How does one wean themselves from the myfico forums? I'm addicted. I can't stop reading the threads. My son has literally snatched the laptop twice in the last 24 hours. I even read the threads from my blackberry. Its been worse the last few days since I've actually started posting. I've been a forum stalker for almost a year. Please help.

Very wrong Booner!  Every addict always has a back up supply.  Even Frugal would throw frugality to the wind and immediately get a second computer if the first started acting funny.

I try to limit myself to only surfing twice a day (once at 9:00am, once at 4:00pm). It never works out that way though. The real time suck comes when you sit there constantly refreshing the screen, waiting for new content to get your fix...
