....now how do I stop?  Is there a 3 step recovery program? 

Seriously, this is such a great website.  I'm kind of new here, only been around since November.  Not that I'm new to chess.  My college roomate and I use to play alot, and he'd always kick my butt.  If this site was around then--in fact, if the internet even existed then--it might have been a different story.  But it had been 35+ years since I last played chess when I happened on Chess.com. Now I'm a full fledged addict, I'm reading books about chess, listening to "The Immortal Game," as I drive from job to job during my workday.  In my 58 years, chess may very well be the most habit forming pastime I've ever acquired. 

Thanks to all of you who put this site together, all of you with whom I joust on the board, and above all, my lovely wife for tolerating my obchession (is that in the dictionary?  it should be!).

Thanks for reading,
