I feel as if I'm addicted to this website. Every time I sit down to the computer I immediately check on my debates. Then I check to see how Mr.Infidel's debates are doing (first in my friends list usually), then the rest of my debating friends. Sometimes, I will reply with posts in the forums, after which, I then find random concluded debates to vote on...

Does anyone else have this problem?

Haha. Same here, and I'm a home-schooled student; I work on the computer every day!

So do I. I am on it for hours of my day, probably not healthy.

Amen to that... Actually, I should probably go finish that essay I had started a few hours ago.

Probably a good Idea. Ddo has taught me how to be a superb procrasinator.

I suppose that I have phases... nevertheless, I guess it really depends on whether or not I'm currently in a debate.

Speaking of being addicted, it would be nice if someone made an app for DDO, or at least mobile support so that one can check on their debates from their phone. At least without all the hassle of pages to load and what not...

Agreed. I will work on that in my presidential platform.

Lol, I had a similar occurrence. Yesterday one of the guys at work was acting kind of strange and seemed like he was hiding something. One of the thoughts that went through my head was "he must be mafia". Rofl.

I knew i had a problem when i was debating with a client instead of trying to win them over. Bad, very bad. I had to rethink the best way to incorporate the skills i learn here with my real life. Holidays are coming, which is a prime time for me to debate with my family, again, not the best approach. I even thought of telling my eldest brother, if in the middle of an argument, to debate me on DDO. That would be incredible to resolve an argument with him here.

Yes, DDO has definitely incorporated itself into my life... Not necessarily in a bad way though. Like you, I have started confronting problems with a mindset for debate... This is only bad when my mom tells me to do chores around the house.
