When does hobby become and addiction

I will start...

1. When you return kids Christmas gifts to pay for paypal bill. Have not done this yet.
2. You are out to dinner with the one you love and try to hurry it up since you have an eBay bid spending and can't remember end time. Has crossed my mind.
3. When all cards look like a good deal at the time of buying. Then when they come in the mail you say what the heck was I thinking.

    Great comments.
  • I collect NFL HOF autographs. I define the difference : You are not truly an addict until you spend at least $1,000.00 for a single autograph. Yes, I have done this on numerous occasions.

    What I need to know is, what is it called once you cross the $10,000.00 for a single autograph. ( But in my defense, I have only done this on ONE occasion )

    If the auto is of someone everyone has heard of, it's not addiction.

    When you recommend a pizza to your spouse instead of going out to dinner on a Saturday night because you'd rather buy another 1975 cello pack with the difference.

    When you actually send in the $700 Tom brady autograph fee because the photos already on ebay for less then $350 from tri star look slightly faded... image
