    Welcome to the club. Check Jewel_of_D(enial)'s thread about how much time is spent on these forums. I've already contacted my work's Employee Assistance Program about getting into a 10 step program.

    Obsession

    You sound pretty normal to me. Maybe a little of both passion and obsession. Just don't forget to ride your bike when the weather gets better.

    person and not the dumbest....j/k. I used to do the same thing. Then I went to the dark side of posting. It's a loooong tough trail back.

    Just think of it as your cigarette break. The shlubs I work with take smog breaks all the time.

    At least you're employed.
    I tend to crack my first adult beverage at noon; at least scoping out this stuff has usurped my need for internet porn

    I don't check at all at work usually. If I take my lunch to work and eat at my desk I might, possibly check but that's the rare exception.

    Definitely obsession, not the forum but biking itself in my case!
    Passion beyond reason!

    This is a great answer. I too leave it pulled up in the background for the few minutes of downtime I come acrossed throughout the day.
