When Are we going to deal with issue of ET addictiveness

  1. For example look at me, I want to leave but I can't. I keep coming back. Now you all out there know that ET is addictive, you know secretly that none of you can leave.

    You can log in, but you can never leave.

    No one talks about it, but you know its true. :eek:
     
  2. Yes it is. I LOOOOOVE my ET :p
     
  3. what is really freaky about ET is that some heavy traders are here as well

    Trapped in a limbo like the rest of us
     
  4. That's because you're a weak-willed little pissant with no self control :D Not only can't you leave, you make up a dozen other aliases, lol.

    Some of us don't want to leave though, ET is grrrrreaaaaaat!
     
  5. well I start either interesting or entertaining threads, while you are just filler material

    in 20 min futures are starting the dance, and I am eyeballing my next vacation

    you........you just continue to be filler material
     
  6. I'm not addicted, I can quit any time I want....
     
  7. ok lets see ya....don't log on until the 1st of 2009......i'll be watching you :D
     
  8. ET is addictive because there are lots of bright folks versed in many different arenas. Great learning forum.
     
  9. Is there an ET patch?? :confused: or maybe ET gum??
     
  10. I would rather spend "bored" time on ET than surfing porn, getting drunk, playing MMORPGs, smoking weed, or other even more pointless wastes of time. At least on ET you might learn something trading-related.
     
  11. I'm not addicted to ET. Just like I'm not addicted to cocaine, I just like the way it smells :D
     
  12. I wish i never stumbled upon this website
     
  13. LOL Cutten.

    I don't know about the weed thing, and as far as learning anything about trading is concerned, I've learned more staring at a chart that wasn't moving than I ever did here.

    It's a trader's watering hole, that's about the size of it.
     
  14. But.. But.. I might miss something!!
     
  15. sheeeeet. That was just the excuse.
     
  16. entertaining....and provides a measure of support/outlet for frustrations re trading

    political forum has gotten me to see some things in a fresh way

    some of the jokes are good, and so are some videos

    :D
     
  17. Whoa there. Let's not get crazy!

    I admit it's close, but... :p
     
  18. I once tried to snort ET. Problem is I have a screen caught in my nostril now.
     
  19. Lately I've heard about these clinics where they try and get you clean from ET by administering a message board substitute.

    Unfortunately they make you come in at like 6:00 AM every morning to dose, they're located in nasty-ass ghetto neighborhoods, and there are always a bunch of shady looking guys standing right outside, selling fresh ET thread printouts in little 1/10 gram bags.
     
  20. If addicted, get married and have sex daily. If still addicted, lay your girlfriend at lunch and your wife at night. If you still have energy to want to be on ET after both, put on alot of weight to gain lethargy.
     
  21. My doctor told me to ween off ET by visiting Trader's Laboratory once every other day. :)
     
  22. LOL
     
  23. I once said I would stay away for at least 6 months. The best I was able to do was about 3 months...

    But after reading an unhealthy amount of P & R threads and becoming suitably disgusted, I feel inclined to try and make another break of it...mañana...
     
  24. I still could quit any time I want. I'm a strong type of person. Besides, I'm not addicted.
     
  25. LMAO
     
  26. When Are we going to deal with issue of ET addictiveness?

    When they pry the mouse from my cold dead hand.
     
  27. There are some interesting threads.

    But, in fact, here I learn more what one must NOT do.
     

  28. :D
     
  29. I ordered some Kratom. I'll post here if it serves as a good replacement for ET.. oh wait....
     
  30. same here.... spending way too much time reading Alex and Anek...

    ROTFLMAO
     
  31. Hello, my name is ChaosNSX and I am an ET addict...:)
     
  32. I bet most et addicts also have other addictions. Top of the list has to be porn, followed by alcohol, drugs. Damn that got me thinking I wonder how many sex addicts there are here.
     
  33. I don't really know any good traders who aren't addicts.
     
  34. There are people with brain injuries that are addicted to brain injury forums, go figure.
     
  35. From reading market wizards seems like the only things those dudes were addicted was to trading and making money. Being addicted to other things like porn, alcohol, sex etc takes precious time away from trading and learning about trading.
     
  36. it's quite easy to become addicted to gambling
     
  37. ET is addictive with neg consequences. It drove ElectricSavant plumb off the deep end. I'm sure there are others. It pays to to visit while drunk to numb the adverse effects.
     
  38. ElectricSavant is a good example. He had over 10,000 posts, promoted to ET mod and then total break down. ET even had to delete some of his last posts they were so sad.

    I would say 2 posts a day average is OK, anything above that you have a problem. I'm at 1.5 posts a day and would like to get it down to less than 1 post a day.
     
  39. Damn, I'm up to 2.25 posts a day.

    I must be running amuck.

    amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck amuck
     
  40. You guys should use ET Light (lots of people on ignore) so it is less harmful....
     
  41. =================
    Exactly, 'R US.

    Besides;
    addiction in not only a bad word, just because the media uses it that way mostly.

    I am addicted to WORK & WATER;
    that could be a problem not to be addicted to those.............LOL:D
     
  42. If anyone here is addicted to ET, then that makes Baron the ET Pusher.
     
  43. definition of addiction is actually classified as either one of abuse or dependence....you carry on despite harm in your life. well, i could be doing more exercise, or spending time with folks/people/nature/meditating.

    to be good at something, a certain amount of obssessiveness is common. like to think so, anyway.

    it is cold up here, and abit dismal. i got off ET during the summer...
     
  44. ET's stats, the top one

  45. I vote nkhoi #1 addict. He has been here since the last century.
