Addiction

my name is "morningstar" and i am an addict.

It started off simply enough..... doesn't it always?? i opened an account on facebook...... for my vanilla side ... for my family .. for sharing photos of family events.

Then i started to add a few vanilla friends.. and then work associates....

The more people i added the more "applications" i discovered.

The first one was Bejeweled...........



i started playing....... once in a blue moon........ it's sorta like (in my mind) popping the bubbles from the bubble wrap paper....... only thing is..... you only get one minute to pop..........

Then i scored a high score...... over 100,000 wow....... the adrenalin started pumping and i HAD to beat my score.... friends started playing and i had to beat their scores.......... i logged on to play before work.. after work.... whenever i could...

Then............ my friends started to invite me to something called Farmville...



i went and looked .... tried it out.... went "pfffffft" boring... and went back to my Bejeweled.... but everyone was talking about this farmville.. so i went back... and started planting crops.... adopting animals.. buying fences.. timing my crops so they wouldn't wither in the fields...

i was playing Bejeweled while i waited for my crops to ripen.............. then .. i saw an ad for something called Cafe World - build your own restaurant.


i went to take a look...... i opened a restaurant......... i bought ingredients and started cooking up a storm...........



Now i was flipping between Farm Ville crops and Cafe World recipes... and dashing over to Bejeweled in between times..

Then i discovered - to my horror - that i was playing face book games instead of writing blogs.. instead of cleaning the house.. instead of doing chores.. instead of doing laundry.............

and so here i stand........ openly admitting ........

i am addicted to "applications" on Face Book...................

HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

i understand completely. My sister invited me to facebook about a month ago and i started playing farmville. Daddy is currently looking for a 12 step program for me, lol. i also discovered cafe world. My friends have told me about many other applications, but Daddy has said i am only allowed 2 applications, so i guess i will stick with what i have.

You don't need help. Internet and video game addiction are fashionable or "in" they are healthy parts of modern peoples lives.
