Yes, you are the only one.  I can stop anytime I want and when I reach 97 hours straight without sleep, I will.  Relax...enjoy.  But do your homework, too!

i know exactly how you feel, my love for poetry alone could keep me on here for hours but all the different aspects of PIP that go beyond poetry (like the allley) keep me here for ridiculous amounts of time    do the work you have to do, but don't post any less, we would miss you

Check this out:

My connection wasn't working at my apt. in the city so i drove accross the island to my beach condo (1hr drive) to use the internet to post and reply.

Right now my browser isn't working so i'm at a friends house before school....using it so i can post and reply.

I use like 20 computers to get into pip so i can post and reply.

I'll be going on a week cruise......i'm going to die cuz i won't be able to use a comp.

No, you are not, it's a connection.....it's a response, it's someone out there who reads your words, it gives you something, an emotional connection....it's real...you're not alone!

When you worry about not having a connection while you're supposed to be on vacation, that's addiction.

When you rush home from work/school and log on to PiP before you do anything else, that's addiction.

When you begin to talk about your friends here in the same way you do about the friends sitting next to you at work/school, that's addiction.

When you get jealous of someone because they have the time to write and post more than you, that's addiction.

Is it good? Any addiction when it interferes in your daily life (if you miss work/school) is not good for you.

How do I know all this? I'm a PiP addict. I never thought I'd stay here more than a month or so..that was in May of 1999... and today? Well...if you don't see me online or posting here, I'm probably sick....or too sick to hobble to the computer....

Now let's join hands and recite 'The Serenity Prayer'...God grant me...

Haha..... yes, everyone knows it.

Well I'd have to wonder if I am an addict... I personally think that I simply really really enjoy PIP.  Why can't that be the case, why must we all say it's some kind of "addiction?"  

That's such an ugly word.  The reason I like PIP is because it's the first group of people that I ever knew who actually cared about poetry.  None of my friends care for it, and whenever I try to share all they say is "wow awesome" and stuff.  

PIP was so refreshing to find, and it's definitely helping me to further my skill in writing.  Now, looking back on my first post here (which I was told "wow awesome" on), I am actually quite displeased with it.  
PIP isn't an addiction... it's just a gathering of poets.  And since poets tend to be very passionate people, voila, we all don't just get into it... we get way into it.  

And that's called "addiction," I guess.  But I really just think of it as something that I can finally do and enjoy.
A good family of poets is hard to find these days... no shame in logging on right after school.

I know what you're talking about!  Haha!  Allan and I have talked about this.. Look at me, I've only been here less than 2 months and I'm pushing 1500 posts.  I can't go a day without getting on here and replying.  Goodness..

Don't ever be someone's slogan, because you are poetry.

Yeah well I'm pretty proud of my addiction.... I just registered in January, and I'm already #46 on the Top 100 posters page.
