Are You a Chess Junkie? Addict? In Denial?

Are You a Chess Junkie? Addict? In Denial?

Are you a chess junkie? If so, what are some of the issues you run into? Do you tuck a chess tactics book in between the Bible pages at church? Do you make excuses to run errands only to run to the club to get your fix? What's your secret to keeping your addiction hidden or at least seem under control to others?

I know I am at a minimum a borderline chess fanatic. When I'm in chess mode that's all I can think about. I have chess books scattered all over my house. There are boards set up in different rooms where I intelligently dare my 3 year old to change the position on me. (Doesn't work)

I really can't get enough of chess. I don't care how bad I am playing I keep punishing myself. I can't stop playing. Even now, I'm wondering why I am wasting my time writing this when I could be pushing wood. Now I'm Jonesing for a game. BRB

Although I am addicted, I do manage my life properly. But what about you. How many people have driven themselves crazy with addictions like chess. (Golf, shopping etc.) It's amazing to me. I'm not even that good at the game and I can't stop playing.

What's your story? If we are all honest I think that we will get to entertain each other with some good old fashioned chess addict stories.
