I am now addicted to Team-BHP.

While online, I always have a tab in the browser with Team-BHP logged in and refreshing the New Posts whenever possible and in between of boring meetings :-)

Default 3 things that made me realize I'm ADDICTED

A) Cant go to sleep without logging atleast once
B) Cant recall what my wife was talking to me about ( while I was surfing the site )
C) When my Kiddo says " Dad.....why do dont you buy a new car for a change" (instead of surfing every night) LOL

i knew it last saturday when i was with my boss in his cabin and he was giving us gyan which was very boring, i for the first time logged on to team bhp on my nokia 6300 phone using opera as the browser. Boss to the guys who maintain this site kudos , it was as good as surfing on my desktop. boss brilliant work.Now it is even more difficult for me as i keep on logging through my mobile.Cheers to Team BHP.

When you start feeling that office has less working hours! Come on, how can you get work done and keep abreast with Team BHP all in a single day?

I am really very fond of reading the forum, I rarely used to pen down something on my own. But I guess I better start participating.
T-BHP rocks!

You know you are addicted to Team-BHP when...
  • just after days of becoming a member, you realise something is wrong.. but just cant do anything about it.. and then suddenly you confess at your home.. "I am addicted to this site and its great" and keep on rambling on and on about the site.. till you realise that you are the only one left in the room!
  • You have to drag yourself off the computer screen at 4am in the morning to go to bed!
  • You realise that if you actually use the time spent on this site, for your work.. you can actually have that dream ride much sooner! but sadly cant do much about it as the horsepower of this site is overpowering your willpower!
  • You find yourself lagging behind as the number of threads and posts far exceeds than you can possibly ever read!
  • A big shelf in your house is occupied by old car mags, which your mom has tried to convince you many times to give up for raddi but in vain!
  • You often find yourself in awkward position when people see you are checking the interiors of a parked car with your head on the windshield and hands covering your face to see properly under the sun! and you just smile out of embarassment and leave!
  • You dream more about cars than women and suddenly find women who can really drive, driving a cool car, HOT!
  • You just cant resist checking on your posts and threads to see who have replied and feel really nice when you see your thread being read a few thousand times..
  • You write each post long enough and so carefully.. as if writing a love letter!
  • You are just really happy to know that all the info you will ever need on any car, anytime and some unbiased expert help and unprecedented support from your fellow members is always there for you.

When you put threads seeking suggestions, advise, do's and don'ts, whatever and get the best of them from the GURUS in that field. And seriously many of them are real GURUS. The feedback comes instantly and one can sort out the posts which suit him or her the best!
So its natural that you login umpteen times a day and scan through all those feedbacks.

Copy all the previous 282 posts and make one post out of it .
I have grown up following the forum, nothing has been left for me to say.

You know you're addicted :

If you're reading this just because its a new post

You're reading this to confirm that you haven't gone crazy and aren't the only one.

You're Friends and Family either tune out or give you a whacking when you speak because its only about something on the site

Saying "I am addicted to team-bhp" would be an understatement. I'd rather prefer saying I live Tbhp. I spend 8.5 hrs at office and never miss a chance sneak peeking into here (apart from staying glued to it, almost daily). At home try to pretend to my wife that I am catching up with office work but infact looking at tbhp forums.
