BA- Bloggers Anonymous? I need help

I'm convinced that hours of being chained to my seat at stolen hours of the morning and afternoon and all hours of the evening into the early morning hours, clicking on numbers, colors, birds, hearts, hamburgers, elephants, smiley faces, and other matching items on BlogExplosion, BlogClicker, and Blogazoo, has led to severe muscle aches, eye strain and carpal tunnel. My mind is not complaining, my body is. And seriously, before I go to bed, I see the "Congratulations- You're a Winner!" flashing in my mind's eye, and before I know it, I'm up again, booting up my computer and driving traffic to my blogsite... click.click.click.click.click.click. Stop!

I am not in denial. I admit it--I am addicted to BE, BC and Blogazoo, and when I joined these traffic exchanges, I promised myself I would moderate my time, but alas, this is not the case.

Are there any of you out there who shares my addiction? I've spoken to a friend who is a psychologist and she is not happy with me. This would explain her refusal to create a blog for herself. "Get a life!", she says. Gee... but I do have a life...

Do you suppose there is a case study on bloggers on the myriad problems (mental, physical, psychological, and whatever else yet un-identified problem(s)) we suffer because of our addiction? I wouldn't be surprised to find one soon. Am I the only one going through this?

I must say again, that I have "met" many different people through their blog site and I've certainly learned a lot from many, although some just leave me confused.

It has been said that blogging may have evolved from chat rooms. If this is the case, one can logically speculate that bloggers were also chat junkies at one time and have progressed to a higher developed venue of communication, or so I would hope.

I find myself guiltily neglecting my boyfriend, although he will deny it, but I do feel terrible that I don't spend as much time as I should with him... why? because of my addiction. Is there a pill I can take?
How about, BA (Bloggers Anonymous) and a modified version of the 12-step program.. just a thought.. just a thought.

At least we have a blog to show for it, unlike TV addicts...

At least we can spread information with our addiction.

I'd like to link to this post, someday. I'm not the only one confronted with "Get a life". I'm confused about one thing, though. Why is that nobody bats an eyelash at addictions to TV, reading, and things of the like? Isn't it the same thing. I mean the only difference between being a book-worm and a blogger is a screen with words as opposed to a book with words, right? What about TV? They are both screens that we look at. One activity is audible entertainment or learning, and the other is from a computer.

Regarding bloggoholism, ..... that be me.

I confess, the allure is magnetic. I love to read. The blogs hold as much allure as "google searches", but with a personal touch. They're like a wide open library and available at any hr. My cure, when I"m not also working at my computer, is this: After only a few wks in blogland, I set an audible timer to remind me to get off the computer because I'm often so absorbed in reading and commenting that I lose track of time!
