Is tMP addictive?

Well is tMP addictive? Is it just me, or do others find that they are late for things, not getting their work done etc, because they are always on tMP?

Yea, I'm really addicted... not that that's a bad thing... but I think I need to hide my modem somewhere or give it to someone so I can get some coursework done! :lol:

It's certainly something that I try and check up on numerous times during the day, whether it's addictive, or just nice to keep in contact with fellow bandsmen/ women doesn't really bother me.
It's just nice to have a chat on a friendly forum!

Of course it isn't! I mean; I can stop this message right now and not come back at all today, can't I. Can't I? What do you mean 'an average of 8.50 posts per day suggests otherwise, Dave'? Rubbish! I simply enjoy it, not addicted at all. I'm stopping this post right now, see? Easy peasy. It's only an Internet forum about brass (and percussion!) I don't get wound up when certain composers start talking about legal action for erroneous interpretations! Nah, that was just a wind up. Honest. Nope, I can give up writing this post any time I like. Simple. I mean, I love brass, me, but.... yep, and I like talking and writing on here about brass too. Particularly on here. I LOVE it, love it, love it, love it, love it!!!! But addictive? ADDICTIVE??? Are you kidding? I mean, it's only a brass forum.

Look, OK..... I'm a bit addicted, alright? Just a teensy eensy ickle bit. No more.........

Erm....... mods,........ you know they have patches.... you know, nicotine patches for people who want to give up smoking, yeah?......... they don't do such things as Internet patches for, like, you know....people who get addicted to forums do they? Don't have any available do you...... look, just keep it between us yeah, don't let the other tMPers know about this..... thanks.

I'm only at 8.44 posts per day :(

As someone who just wandered on in for a stickybeak after seeing an ad, I can safely say that this site is NOT addictive!! Nor are alcohol, cigarettes, chocolate.........

err right ok

"Hi My names WhatSharp?, and I'm a tMPerholic. It started I guess with the occasional post, you kow nothing too serious just the odd one every couple of days or so. Well you know how it is, after a couple of weeks I'm on about 2 or 3 a day, nothing heavy just replying, no topic starters or anything. Well then I guess I just got in with the wrong crowd, next thing you know I'm a 10 a day with topic starting all over the place. Even did a sticky once, guess I just can't help it, got have that Happy tMP Day fix just to kick start the day and maybe a couple of minor posts around lunchtime with the odd topic starter in the evening."


Hi I'm Trigger and I joined tMP in August last year and I am a tmperholic. In the beginning I only logged every so often, say once a month. I never even posted anything. But then gradually I found myself slipping. I began posting every so often, then came the new topics. I have gone from around six or seven posts in total to over fifty in one week. I just can't seem to control myself. All hours of the night I am surfing tMP. Cold sweats and nightmares are just a few of the symptoms. I'm thinking about getting some of those tMP patches mentioned earlier. I hope it's not too late for me?? :roll: :lol:

Quite simply YES!I have already informed John that I blame him entirely for when i fail my exams, as every time i go on the computer to do work i think 'oh i will just look on tMP and see if anything new and exciting is going on' and i end up using the whole hour or two that i have set aside to do something called 'work'??????

How is that pronounced? Is it "tee-em-pea-erholic", or is it "temp-erholic"??? :wink: :D
