The Longest Break.

You have taken away from OFF?

Do you find the site addictive?

For me it is a very addictive site....I managed to take around 2 months off once,..but only because....I wasn't getting any home work done......

So!....are you addicted?...or are you able to manage your time...that you spend on here?

Re: The Longest Break.

Yes I remember you taking a break Pauline - I missed you.

Personally I've never felt the need to take a break.
I manage to pop in everyday - even if only to post on the 'Good Morning' thread.

I have too much happening in real life to become addicted to an internet forum and I don't become deeply involved in any of the discussions - especially the ones that get tempers up!!!

I do like this forum. It's one of the best senior forums on the net.

Re: The Longest Break.

I haven't taken a break so far Pauline. Like Carol I pop in and out most days but only post if I think I might have something useful to add. I enjoy reading the posts but avoid the contentious ones.

I have a busy life so don't really spend much time on the internet generally.

Re: The Longest Break.

I've been gone for weeks at a time, sometimes through choice, sometimes in order to keep my mouth shut. I have a busy life on the farm, so there's plenty to keep me occupied if I'm not online for a while.

Re: The Longest Break.

I've been a member of this forum for almost five years and I visit the site at least once a day, mostly twice. I can't remember ever taking a break Pauline, except when I've been away on holiday and there was no internet service. Even then though it would have only been 24 hours at most.

I consider everyone on here to be a friend and love to keep up with their news and opinions, even if I don't always agree with them, but that makes it more interesting.
My world gets a little bit lonely at times, despite Mrs Fox's company, and popping into the forum to see what's happening has turned out to be a good hobby, and, like a hobby, I can turn it off when I've had enough, unlike people turning up when I want to be on my own and get on with a job. I suppose I'm a bit of a loner.....

I've never taken a morning paper, and avoid watching or reading the news, so most of the current news I get is via the forum, and if it's interesting enough I'll follow links or visit a news channel, probably the BBC (It's my homepage) but I hate their biased reporting and don't know why I get my news from them....

The forum probably accounts for 80% of my internet time, I very rarely buy anything off the internet, just pay the odd bill and do my banking on here occasionally. If it wasn't for the forum you could probably count the hours I spend online per week on one hand.

Sometimes when there are no interesting topics I might just have a browse round without posting, but worry not, I'm always here....

Re: The Longest Break.

I'll be disappearing in a few days for an indeterminate length of time ranging from a couple of weeks to for ever (hope not!)

Re: The Longest Break.

Pauline,
Like others have said, I have taken breaks but not through choice, it was because real life takes over sometimes.
The longest was about 2 weeks
The shortest, about an hour!!!
