Freaky! AA-Aikiweb Anonymous :)

It seemed so innocent at the time…

Years ago, I would occasionally surf the forums in aikiweb, about once every 2-3 months. About a year ago, I noticed I was looking every month. Not a problem I thought, I can stop anytime… Now, I've registered and I find myself an addict!

First, it was once a week, now I can barely stop myself going in every day, even at work. I found myself adding comments to threads, contemplating how I'd answer these questions -- where does it end?

Will I become a full forum addict? Committed to the greater use of smilies, obscure MA quotes and long rambling discussions. Can I choose my style of addiction - nice open minded attendee, nasty macho guy? Do I have to choose my forum enemies now or can I just wait for them to appear.

Please help…
My name is Larry.... I too am an Aikiweb forums addict.

Everyone: "Welcome Larry"
