Question Are you addicted?

Are all of you as addicted to SCS as I seem to be lately? How often do you visit and how much time do you spend on here?

For me it seems to be way too much. I'll say to myself a few more minutes and find that an hour or two has passed. At the end of a work day I'm too tired to 'create' and find it's just easier to look at all of the wonderful work of everyone else. There are so many talented people here.

Now if I could only stamp half of what I spend online I know I could accomplish so much.

Been addicted since last summer when I joined. Barely a day goes by without me checking in here. I drink my morning coffee checking email and SCS. Then when I get home from work, I do the same routine without the coffee. Some nights I stay on here all evening. I only have 6 cards in my gallery but I have 2000 posts on here...you tell me - addicted? um, yep....

I'm addicted! I spend hours and hours on here. I even stopped watching TV so I could spend more time here. The only time I get cards made is when the computer is acting up or there is a storm (and I am afraid to turn the computer on) or if my husband is using the computer.

I am new and addicted! I don't post much, but I spend so much time looking at all the great ideas and posts. I am like you scubascrapper...at the end of the work day, I am too tired to do much more than lay on my bed or sit on the couch with my laptop. I look at a lot more stuff here than I make!

I am wondering when there will be a forum started called SCS Anonymous??

I would be on that...

Kind of an oxymoron in itself...

I am addicted, however, I have slots of times where I am on several times a day for several days. Then, due to family things or other obligations, I go through times where I might stop in for a few minutes once every other day.
I always end up back here though!
Sometimes I wonder how it is that some folks seem to be here 24/7! When do they eat, sleep, go grocery shopping....

Default Completely Addicted

I make a card every couple of days, I only have four in my gallery because my scanner it acting up and I don't like the way my camera takes photos. I spend my evenings on here almost every night while the puppies play around me and the hubby and I watch TV. We have wireless internet so I find myself carrying the laptop around the house with me!

I am also addicted, I get up in the morning (on my days off)and sit here and browse while drinking my coffee. Then later in the day I get back on.I spend 2-3 hours just browsing.I am surprised my dh has not questioned my fascination with the computer.

And just like another poster, I too have traded TV watching in order to spend time on here.

So yes I am VERY addicted!

Um, here I sit, in my robe, drinking my coffee, doggie on my lap, kitties at my feet, (the cat's beat me here even)..............................

It's a sight that can be seen every morning.

My cats are very much creatures of habit. At night, when I stand from my recliner, the cats bolt for the bedroom, because they know that's whats next.

In the morning, when my alarm goes off, they bolt for the computer, because they know that's whats next.

Yep, I'm an addict.

Yes, I admit it, I'm an addict! I have a job where my boss isn't around much and I can check in on SCS at work. That right, I'm at work right now, drinking my coffee and playing on the computer. Usually during the day I get some work done, check in on SCS, get some more work done..... Hmmmm, maybe I should get a little work done! LOL

Am I addicted? When I visit my sister she's on her computer, I'm on her laptop, we both log into SCS and MSN Messenger and IM links of cards we like to each other. When we do this we're in THE SAME ROOM!! rofl

I check in pretty much everyday. Sometimes it's just to check on subscribed threads, other times it's a couple hours. I'm not interested in 12 steps though... I sit to surf SCS, no steps required. lol

Totally! LOL I log on as soon as I get to work and keep it minimized all day. On lunch, ramien soup and SCS or online stamp related shopping. When I get home, laptop is on a small table to the left of my dining table, where I have my cards or scrap pages all laid out to work on. Need idea, quick look at the laptop. See who's on line etc. You ladies are all my online friends and I feel like I'm always having coffee with a friend when I have SCS up.

If I were a pixel and lived in a computer, I would live in the SCS site. That's how much I am on here visiting. I work at home and I am on the computer constantly. SCS is my transition into and out of work mode. It is just a nice way to spend a few minutes. I comment on cards, I read the forums, I look at techniques and resources over and over again. Yup, I'm addicted and that's a good thing.

Oh, I am here ALL the time now! I hardly posted when I first joined but now I am here all the time. I was commited to some other message forums (non-craft related) but they got boring so I started reading more and more posts around here. Everyone here is so friendly and I feel like we have a lot in common.

Addict isn't the word.... I'm a newbie and I have bought SO many supplies through SU and E-bay but am intimidated to start using the stuff. I have a huge addiction with markers. I am very addicted to SCS because I think it will get me motivated to start stamping and it never does. I never had this problem with scrapbooking. I feel like standing up in a crowd of people and say "Hi, my name is Sherri Wehland and I am addicted to SCS and SU". Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

Totally addicted. Depending on how much stuff I have to do at work (which is usually not very much), I'm on here all day.
