    Rehab Anyone?

    definitely not the worst addiction to have. but really, it's bad. if i'm home for even five minutes i log on! it's more like if i'm anywhere with a computer! and then there's work. they block this site. thank God for ep mobile.

    I Don't Think It, I Know It!

    yes, this site is truly, deeply addictive (in the best possible way, though!) recently i haven't been coming on as much as i'd like to, but as i get ready for finals and such i realize that cutting down my ep time by some is the only way i'm ever going to get anything done! i'll...

    Love This Site

    I have only been on this site a couple weeks. And I think it is awesome. I love connecting w/ others like me. I have met some really great people on here and I hope both deepen the friendships I have made, and make new ones a long the way.

    I Login To Ep At Least 4 Times A Day

    No way. I want to correct my previous post. I am no longer addicted to EP. This is because they object to even minor exotic stories/posts. I have lost interest in EP, although in the past I had posted stories which are viewed by over 10,000 readers. Thanks to the readers of...

    But In a Nice Way

    I've been on EP a few weeks and have battled to get the balance.  I was initially a bit obssessed - I got so far behind at work I was starting to wonder if anyone would notice...!  And I was bringing my same old hang ups with me.  When I ...

    Lights Bells And Whistles ~ Like A Slot Machine

    I don't know if there was a deliberate intention in the design of EP to do this, but I've realised that a significant drawing factor at EP is the continual stimulation when you post. The stream of notifications, tokens for engaging, votes for our thoughts, comments on comments on...

    Ep Is Addictive

    I'd have to say this is a true statement, however, it keeps the mind, on the ball.

    I log on first thing in the morning everyday.

    I log on if I get up at night. I think about my friends on here when I am doing other things. For me it is the love and support I get from people that make me feel like I am ok. Years ago, I read a book called, "I'm ok, you're ok" and in this book you start with the premise...

    And Can Also Be Counterproductive

    It's like drinking while shooting pool (billiards). A few drinks and you play better, but too many and you're useless.

    I Know EP Is Addictive.

    Hell yeah it is. Otherwise I wouldn't be here nearly 7 years later on my umpteenth account. I've found EP to be more addictive than any other social network I've ever joined. EP is unique in what it offers, and I think that's why I keep coming back.
