    Why is it that I find myself checking the forum every 10 minutes of my workday?

    Does anyone else struggle with BHW syndrome? :(

    Internet addiction disorder (IAD), also known as problematic Internet use or pathological Internet use, is excessive Internet use that interferes with daily life. Addiction, defined by Webster Dictionary as a "compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal", was traditionally used to depict a person's dependence on a substance. More recently, the concept has been applied to behavioral dependence[1]including internet use.[2] The problem of Internet addiction evolves together with the development and spread of the Internet.

    Most people are addicted to facebook, reddit, youtube.
    You are to BHW. At least you learn a thing or two from here.

    Sort of..but I don't personally care. I mean.. cmon.. we are not donkeys man. We all need refreshment and entertainment. I some times log out from BHW for saving myself from the temptation to reply to threads. I log back in ultimately. :p

    Exactly. That's more valuable than scanning Facebook all day to see what my 3rd cousin had for lunch.

    BHW is my new Facebook and Instagram, I am here far more than any other platform tbh.

    Good thing is that BHW is where I can learn more and do business too :)

    Same for me. I too spend more time on BHW per day than Instagram and Facebook combined. Here, you can actually hold worthwhile conversations that have meaning and depth.

    I take breaks from the forum because of this. This is truly an amazing place. Throughout the years, it seems that no matter at which point I start browsing and being active. I become overwhelmed with information and connections. Sometimes I’m not ready for it. Although I do feel like I am missing out on so many things by not being a consistent member. I’m trying to manage my time here better so I can frequent more.

    And yes I too believe in utilizing the web for information, and not entertainment.

    I know so many people here deal with social media’s so much they don’t have time or interest to browse for personal entertainment or interaction.

    Distraction or a place where if you pop in you might find an ounce of gold that you can turn into a pound of gold?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    At least that didn't discourage you from continuing to learn. This is definitely the place to be for ideas that will help you to revive your income stream(s)! :D

    Everyday u can learn new stuff . I think why people spend more time here it's cuz people love to see others succeed and at the end we all fighting for freedom.
