This site is SO bad for me

I thought I was addicted to my reef tank but now it is WORSE. I have been on here every waking moment! I am spending money faster than i can make it and dont care...lol. I havent even been on facebook at all today and anyone in my family can tell you I LIVE on facebook. I have my computer set up in the living room right next to my tank and the tv .... all my crops are probably dead and my frontier is probably overgrown (facebook peps will know what i mean)

Has anyone ever considered a ARC support group

I was that way at one time. I would have four or five forums open along with email and Photobucket. I would be up all night. Sleep an hour or two go to work always keeping a forum open on the phone too.

The whole thing is an addiction, I swear.

Yeah, thankfully I've sort of, kind of, in a way but not really managed to control the financial side of the addiction. I've put myself on a budget and I'm sticking to it. Except when my wife says to spend more!!! But as for this forum. Definitely and addiction. Lots to learn.

thats my problem my budget is everything i make ...I work a couple days a week as a waitress to support my habit so I have tip money everytime I work... My husband and i have a deal (because i supported the whole family for 6 years while he was hurt and couldnt work) He works and pays all the bills and whatever i make is mine to spend as I want. He REFUSES to give me a dime for my tanks even if there is an emergency and I am out of cash. he said it is my habit and i have to fund it. (I think drugs would be cheaper) Since I dont HAVE to work anymore I spend most of my time with the kids (something I couldnt do when my oldest (will be 21 in jan) was young because I worked all the time) doing ballet, gymnastics, baseball, soccer, boy scouts, girl scouts (I am the troop leader).
Since joining this board I am seriously considering, after school starts next week, taking on a couple extra waitress shifts a week so i can buy more stuff!

I was going to suggest 2 browser windows... on for ARC and one for FB but I see you got that sorted.

Wait until the kids are back in school and this site starts to pick up again... It's been really slow around the boards lately - time of year.
