Recommended Posts

this game is some type of drug to me, some months i go on without even considering it and playing it, then at my 'highs' i am on these forums and playing with fs2002,its quite bad cause i sit at work and spend too much time, i mean too much, sitting around reading the forums, and then day dreaming and eagarly awaiting to come home and tweak, play, download and what not, fs related stuff!:-zhelp

Hi checkpointcharlie,To be honest,we are all in the same boat. I have been doing this since FS 98 at a steady pace. That makes me a novice when it comes to this hobby. Lots of simmers have been around before the internet...Flight simming is not a drug, it is a way of life. The best thing is my wife stills calls me her husband. Now back to " tweak, play, download and what not, fs related stuff "! and if there is time... fly a bit!Checkpointcharlie, seems you are one of us now...This Hobby Just Keeps Getting Better... :-yellow1Kind RegardsRobert

Hi Mate,I know exactly where you're coming from ! You're not alone ! Some of us are lucky enough to have wives who allow us to pursue our obsession. Mine does and never complains when I bury my head deep in forums and aeroplanes... Others, however, also deeply affected by this bug, don't enjoy this kind of support and my heart goes out to them... To be denied that 'fix' must be awful ! Do you agree ?AFOX :-wave

Maybe we should open an anonymous FSAddict (sounds like a new addon :-)) club. Count me in.Alex

Yup - confessed!!If you think FS is addicting by itself, try it on VATSIM! I actually find providing ATC to be even more adictive - come see us out west tomorrow for CalScream 6!! I'll be on ABQ_V_CTR for most of the day if you're planing on flying out of Phoenix or Tucson...

I just got into FS this week and am already addicted! Doesn't take long. I'm still learning the in's and out's of just flying and I'm already wanting to learn about Vatsim and virtual airlines. I just placed an order for a yoke and rudder pedals too. Guess I qualify as one who is hooked as well. ;)KP

Guilty! My wife says she is a flight sim widow. My neighbor came over yesterday to borrow some sugar and saw me flying and stayed for 3 hours. Now his wife is a flight sim widow too. This thing is worse than crack at grabbing you and holding on.Ken

Well I have to say im addicted to flightsims freeware.Whenever I get a chance I check for any new freeware addons. Install em and play, and take screenshots.I spend most my time trying new planes, the most I ever really fly 1 flight is usually about 30 min.. ocationally I do a long flight but I think its more fun to try out alot of planes

Hi people,Sorry to say but my little bit of advertising for this great thread has already been badly received... Seems some of us just can't find the time to laugh. Quite frankly this kind of attitude makes me sick and is slowly eating away at our forum and hobby like a virus. Catch you later. Great thread and thanks for writing.AFOX :-wave
