Hi,
My name is Claire and I'm a P.O.T.N. addict.

I realised it after having a very strange dream involving posting on the forum. My subscription list is waaay too long and threads have to be unsubscribed at a regular basis. When someone new has posted in the subscribed thread, I can't stop myself from checking "who it was".

This just goes to show that the forum is dangerously addictive and for all you out there that are having the same problem, I've opened a thread for us all to ventilate our thoughts around this addiction.

I will unveil the 12 Step Programme for P.O.T.N. Anonymous within a short time. For now, feel free to introduce yourselves. If you find it hard to be open about it, just take a deep breath, we're all friends here. Do feel free to tell us when you first realised that you had become an addict and how it has affect you.

Welcome to P.O.T.N. Anonymous. ;)

Hi, I too am a POTN addict. My addiction started when I discovered how to use the tabs "UserCp" and "NewPosts". I now have a window open whether at work or at home and click to get my fix a couple of times an hour. I use to check the headlines first thing in the morning but now it's right to POTN. I have not sunk to the levels of depravity as some and set POTN to my homepage as that would be the equivalent of living is a cardboard box just to feed your habit, but I have moved up the POTN link so that I do not have to scroll through a bunch of links just to get my daily POTN fix and I fear that homepage is next.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Hi, my name is Jim and I'm known as Jazz.

I've been a member for a couple of years and really don't post all that often. I rarely post photos for comment and rarely comment on others photos, there are just too many good pictures and I'm learning way too much just being an active lurker.

Really though, I don't post much, but I'm here so much it must be an addict:(

but what a sweet addiction:lol:

I don't plan on changing my habits any time soon. Except maybe to post pictures more often (need to be less critical of myself)

POTN Rules. An addiction that does not add weight:lol:

If I keep POTN (sounds like Poutine, eh?) up all the time, does that mean I'm mainlining:confused:

I'm sure the first step is admitting that you're an addict.:)

Hi, my name is Tom and I am a POTN' holic. It all started about two years ago, I was going thru a low point in my life. I had no inspiration. My pictures were dull. I was lonely, weak and desperate. Going from forum to forum gave no hope. Then I found this bar...err..forum and I started to come back to it more often than not. A little bit more each day. And then, the moment I started having breakfast on my computer desk, I realised I had an addiction... I'm ashamed, please help!

Hmmmm,

A distinct absence of the 'usual suspects' in here leads me to believe people are not able to face the truth.

I'll stop reading POTN the day I run out of money and can't afford any more lenses/accessories...
