    Ok, Its time to face the music.. Step out from behind that door, get up from the floor out of that fetal position and tell the world you have a serious problem and your a Cruise @ddict!

    My name is John and I'm a Cruise @ddict.

    We have a 13.5 step program here.

    Step (1) is acknowledging you have a problem.

    Step (2) is making this fact public by posting a reply to this message. Don't be afraid of what others may think.. be proud of your @ddiction.

    Step (3) is ordering a frozen drink with a nice umbrella thingy.

    ( I would like Chi-Chi please ) HOT!

    We'll cover further steps in our meetings, the secret handshakes, decoder rings and flags will be discussed then.

    Ok, its your turn to make the next move.

    Re: <B><font color=

    It's not my fault!!!!!!! I grew up in a family that condoned being out on the water whenever possible. I had my own dinghy when I was 7. There were enablers that always had me away from land whenever possible. With an upbringing like that I didn't have a chance. And then they started with Marguarita's.....................................

    My name is Scott...It all started innoncently for my wife and I...It was an older ship...blue...with pretty white stripes and two smoke stacks...we figured what the heck...we'd try it once...who's it going to hurt. Before we new what happened we were @ddicted. We need our fixes more and more...and of course our desire for bigger and better overtook us! My name is Scott...I'm an @ddict.

    As embarrasing as it is...I also must share...I like to wedges of lime in my Coronas...I can't believe I said that! Sharing is half the battle though!

    Re: <B><font color=

    This is Ann and I'm an addict. Our first cruise was for our 25th anniversary, and we were hooked. Our 2nd cruise was the cruise from Hell, but we still came back for more. Then, of course, we had to try a balcony; now, I'm ashamed to say that we won't even consider a cruise without one. How can we stop this addiction!! The best part is that my husband is as addicted as I am so I see many cruises in our future. CH@OS is this year, and for our 35th anniversary next year, look out Alaska.
    Oh, by the way, I'll take a Pina Colada while lying in the sun anytime.

    My name is E and YES I am a Cruise @ddict and dam proud of it. :grin My @ddiction started many moons ago when I was darn near conceived on the water. From there on out I grew up on the water and the rest is history. I will settle for one of those Dark Meyers Rum Pina Coladas with an extra dash of the dark stuff on top. :party

    My name is Annette and I am a cruise@ddict. I took my first cruise last year and didn't want to get off the ship. Hooked at the first try. I did not know of this board at that time, so no one warned me of the possible addiction to follow. I am now eagerly waiting my next Fix, ah...cruise. The frozen thingees are just icing on the cake..along with the chocolate midnight buffet!! I am grateful to find all the other addicts that make my addiction tolerable...Thank you.

    Hi, my wife and I became @ddicts by pure chance 2 years ago. There was an error in a published price of a cruise and we could not pass up such an inexpensive vacation to Alaska. Never thought about a cruise before that... but now... we can't stop dreaming and planning our future cruises. We are truly @ddicted! My wife handles all the frozen drinks.... I prefer a well made Bloody Mary (does it still count?). Seriously enjoy this board! Thanks to all of you for your wonderful advise, thoughts, etc. It makes planning cruises so much easier to be able to talk to other cruisers. Working on our second cruise now (Caribbean) and starting plans for a Hawaii to Vancouver cruise in 2004!!! Life is GOOD!

    Hi my name is Nancy, my husbands name is John and we are true cruise addict.
    We took our first cruise in Oct 1998. That was all it took, since then our lifes changed drastically. We we have not been on a land vacation since. All we think and talk about is cruises, our friends just don't understand. Folks this is a true sickness. I'm sure there's not a 10 or even a 12 step program our there that will help us now, were to far gone.
    Please send money and brochures. Thanks

    Re: <B><font color=

    I have to admit I am an addict. I became addicted when my sister and mom talked me into going on a cruise in 1995. I have been on 17 since and have 2 more booked. That makes 5 this year. I have gone way over the cruises my mom and sister have gone on. They have created a monster. Now that hubby is retired, I am spending all of our savings. Can I come over and eat dinner once in a while when it is all gone???

    Re: <B><font color=

    I'm Bob. My wife's name is Mary. We waited 18 years, wanting to cruise, but didn't think we could afford it. After our first time, we tried to deny it and flew to Mexico for our next vacation. But finally we admitted it. This board helps by feeding our addiction when were not our doing it. Right now its so bad, we are researching our next two cruises, not just one. Still not sure if we can afford it, but that doesn't matter any more. We even leave cruise brochures lying around the house for everyone to see. No point in hiding them. Everybody knows. And its to the point now that we want our next cruise to be longer than the last one. Maybe one day....a world cruise.

    Can anybody help us???

    Probably not.
