    Find the serenity to accept the things you cannot change.

    Step #4. Admit to ourselves that we are powerless over our forum addiction.

    I know what I'm talking about!!!

    Step 6: Don't connect to the Internet, when using the computer for work purposes, or you won't resist opening the AtoZ site!

    Stop the steps.. I can't get away from this place and now I found out about the games and I just can't get enough...my kids are teasing me. I don't dare log on at school...I'd forget I had kids in my room! Look at the number of my posts and I just joined last month. HELP! OK I guess we can continue with the 12 steps but it won't help. This board has taken over all of my free time but I love it...this and my cruise message board.

    LOL I admit that I'm addicted as well.

    About a year ago it seemed like everytime I googled to get info on something I landed here, read the posts about it and moved on. Then lately it started making me laugh that atoz was always where I ended up so I joined. Now I don't even need to search for something.. I'm here anyhow.

    I too am addicted to this site...I found out I can access it from work...boy is that trouble. But with everything at school and being in grad school, I've slowed down since school started...but I just have to check it before I go to bed...which usually means I go to bed later than originally planned! I don't know what I'd do without you guys:)

    I know. I have a problem. A to Z is always up when I'm at work. I come early to check all the posts before school starts, and whenever the kids are not here I reply to any emails. I'm always having some teacher ask me for computer resources for something, and this is the perfect site to search for them. I guess I'm one of the tech. people at our school. I've even been signed up for all the new tech. programs. So far I have about 30 technology hours for this year, and it's only September. I do have the most technology in any of our regular classrooms, and we use it everyday.

    OK, I'll admit that you all have replaced my friends at school/college. I graduated in May and didn't get a job. All my buddies are working. So, I'm not a student anymore, not a teacher yet and sometimes I feel so out of the loop! This board helps me stay connected and on top of "teaching". You've been a life-saver!

    I guess just keep reading and posting...why fight it...sometimes I feel like I have to hide it from my kids. I am always telling them they are on the internet way to much.

    I wish I could get on at school. We have been told they monitor what sites we use at school, though I think they don't. However.....I can probably get away with this one and say I was looking for ideas...hopefully they will never see how many posts I have. No bad idea...I have little 1st graders and I might start ignoring them and talking to all of you :)

    I think this is much better than television. My husband goes to bed way early so I don't have anyone to talk to so what the heck! I have gained a lot of good ideas and had some good conversation on this site. I am glad that one lady isn't bashing me anymore though. She was making it not so fun.

    OK, this is SAD! I get so caught up on this site, reading and "chatting", that I forget to get on the websites I should to search for a JOB! Hmm....that is what brought me here in the first place!

    YUP, addicted!

    I'm addicted to. Message boards really are great. You can talk to anyone, like aussiejen said---and I found this site thanks to Google. But this site has been helpful, and even reading posts I've felt so not alone in concerns that I've had. I think I will go to bed know I'm really tired and have to present a lesson plan Wednesday at 9:30 mountain time. Its an observation lesson so I am more nervous than I need to be.

    This is a great website. I love talking to all of you and getting great ideas. This is an addiction by far and much better than watching TV. I can't stand some of the shows on TV. I end up watching a lot of movies. I rent movies on the web and watch them at my convience and return when I want. Anyway, talk to you later. I going off to read some more posts!!!
