To think I can't be the only one with this problem?

I think I'm addicted to MN. In the morning, I will be on MN and I will look at the time and think "shit I only have an hour to get ready, shower and all! But just 2 10 more minutes/one 47 more comments..." And then I only have 40 minutes to get ready and the cycle starts again...

Anybody else suffer from this?

It may of course, not be addiction but procrastination... We will never know. 😜

It's so bad I'm considering having a different nc for every day of the weekto hide it 😂

I'm in denial. I totally need my fix first and last thing, but don't think it's a problem. It's like how people used to read the newspaper in the morning, isn't it? Just with more cock-lodgers and biscuits and penis beakers.

I'm with you!

In fact, I was on at 4am feeling snarky because there weren't many new threads.

Maybe you need like an AA for MN.
Hi, my names BeingATwat and I'm addicted to MN. It's been 2 minutes since my last comment grin

yeh, I don't watch TV anymore though.

Yup! I flit between MN and FB and am constantly disappointed that there aren't more juicy threads on either so then I have to get on with some work (I'm self employed so the only person I'm letting down is myself!)

I tried a FB ban once but then I checked a group I'm a member of to let them know that I would be AWOL for a month and while I was on there I won a £1000 prize from a competition I'd entered on FB so I felt that it was a sign not to give it up! grin

If MN want to give me a grand to keep me here I'll happily accept it smile otherwise I may have to go cold turkey, at least until I get some work done.

I'm Data and I haven't showered in three days because it would cut into mn time grin

I don't comment much, but lurk A LOT, and also with the Facebook, and then I found FreeJinger too, and I basically never get any work done anymore...

Me too. Don't know what the solution is.
What's FreeJinger? <considers resigning from job>

Maybe we should start a MN Addicts thread. May be counterproductive though...

Is it bad that I have used my 15 minute break whilst the children play to peruse MN instead of getting my cup of tea? I think the summer really cemented my issue because I wasn't restricted to only during play and lunch...

I'm cocklodger and yesterday I walked into a door because I was too busy mumsnetting to open it.

Wench FreeJinger is an American website/forum predicated on the basis of snarking about fundamentalist Christians (think the Duggars - 19 kids and counting) , a bit niche, but bloody hell you can lose hours...

I'm Being and I MN when I'm feeling sad or bored or happy or tired or awake or ...

When I can't MN, I feel cross angry and anxious that I am missing something amazing. sad
