If you're doing it just for yourself and there's no real pressure for you to do well or get it done by a certain time, then it's a positive kind of obsession in that you can immerse yourself reasonably safely in the same way as you fall in love in some respects. The stage when everything else fades out and you're in your pearly pink bubble where you don't really need anything else to keep you going because all your needs are met by the object of pleasure.

Glad to hear she's all moved on and recognises the signs for when to cut and run too - that was something I never managed to do until 5 years ago, when it was far too late for any meaningful recovery

Careful there - there's quite a few of us on here and we can't all be brilliant.
My real trouble is that I do know the solution but I'm stuck in a financial cul-de-sac that needs at least a lottery double roll-over to reverse out of but there are still upsides in that I don't need to go back to relatively gainful employment because that's part of my problem. So things could be a lot worse and I do get my fair share of fun pretty much on here and other places

I think a few months on a nice quiet beach in the Whitsundays should go a tad towards healing the soul huh?... now .... what to do with the kiddies....
