    Hi all...you see I have this problem and I'm wondering if anyone can relate. I am officially addicted to SDN, like I need the patch or something. My day revolves around checking threads, I feel like I have a drug problem, all I think about is dental school, and it's as if SDN feeds the hunger for more information...I need help...anyone else experiencing similar problems? :(

    If that means you are experiencing similar problems it makes me feel a lot better, you were like the brad pitt of SDN for a while, you and your amazing acceptances...with your amazing DAT score :love: lol

    The other night when SDN was down, I was FREAKIN' OUT! I seriously thought the world was coming to an end.

    I get on here and time flies....I have no control! ARGGGGGGGGGGG:scared:

    Thats funny, cus I made that post while cooking dinner, and I am eating right now! I guess this vice is better than others! btw, did I mention that I learned how to make free-base out of cocaine in ochem? Also, I learned that it is really supposed to be pronounced coca-ine. I guess I am learning something irl. HAHA

    Fortunately for me, my "addiction" has faded away. I mostly stay away from Pre-Dental, and occasionally lurk in The Lounge.

    I had to remove it from my bookmarks toolbar, and now I manually type it in to prevent me from getting on too often. I know I have few posts, but I've read all the threads from the past few months! I'm gonna try to check only 1 or 2 times a day... maybe

    I can stop at anytime, why would I stop now an hour and half away from a micro practical I haven't studied for. I wonder if there are any complications of SDN addiction with being senior, being accepted, and generaly not giving a crap anymore.

    You know its bad when they shut SDN down to do maintenance, and you keep refreshing your browser, hoping that it works.

    There is really nothing wrong with an SDN addiction... Oh man! I have been watching the end of broadcast screen on my TV and I didn't even realize whatever show was on ended, I have 3 phone calls I must have missed and I haven't let the dog out since noon...but I do have a record number of posts today...this means I get first prize...it's more like a game or a race than an addiction. See, no problem. See ya later.
