Just started Chowhounding... I'm Addicted

Okay I just found this site yesterday and I'll be damned if I've gotten any work done yet. I post stuff, I answer posts, this has been going on for hours. Will the madness stop?

  1. No. Be forewarned. You will become increasingly wiser with food and eating, but painfully less productive in other areas. This site is enormously time consuming, so be prepared. I suppose it's like anything else -- it's okay as long as it's in moderation. Keep your priorities in order and manage your time here wisely. You'll be fine.

    1. Oh Robin, a key time management feature is to "favorite" a thread under topic options so you can read Boards at a leisure pace.

      When it comes to restaurant recommendations and recipes, I find the "favorite" option especially helpful.


      1. Robin, I used to be a successful nerosurgeon before I discovered Chowhound. Now I'm unemployed and dating a crack whore. But my dining and food experiences have improved immensely and I feel fulfilled. Welcome to the fold...

            *LAUGH* And I thought I was the only one whose life had disintegrated. But what a way to go!!!

          2. Oh Robin, I"ve been addicted since day one. It might get better but for now I'm just riding the wave, learning, laughing and eating. Ahhhhhh life is good!

            1. Yup, I'm with you on this. There should be a 12 stepper, "My name is 'ballulah' and I'm a Chowhound."
