We've had this topic up for discussion a couple of times and one of the members had mentioned that one cannot call it an addiction as an addiction implies a bad habit and working at ISC is a good one! It is nice to see that this fresh thread on the same theme has brought in more responses than earlier.
I would like to give a short narrative of my own case - ISC is not merely an addiction. A good friend had once given me a very accurate and, I should say, a stunning revelation which brought out the fact that I seemed to be not addictive but obsessed by ISC. You see, I was checking out the forum even while at work and even after work at my evening job when I returned home, editing/responding like as though it was earth-shatteringly important. Once I acquired a smartphone a couple of years ago, it became even more of an obsession since then I did not have to switch on my laptop but simply check out via the phone. Trying to keep the phone off did not help as for some reason I used to gravitate towards it, switch it on and check out ISC. Then I decided to stop acting like an idiot and to take a firm grip on things. Once I got a new phone, I synced it with a new email ID. That way, I did not get any ISC-related alerts even if I did check it. Whenever I felt tempted to check ISC, instead I would click on the YouTube icon and watch movie trailers to keep my mind off ISC. If I got tempted, I would feel as though my friend was scowling at me over my shoulder so would keep my fingers off ISC. The temptation has crept in, I admit though, from time to time in recent months and I do check out the new posts, but keep it to a minimum of a few seconds only. Maybe I need someone to scold me again!!
