Though i was apparantly an un-diagnosed flashoholic for many years, i didn't come to this level of self awareness until i stumbled upon this very forum. This realization was two-fold,or bittersweet,if you will. While having to face the cold hard fact that i may indeed have a problem,never a pleasant realization, i also found that i was hardly alone,that i had become a member of an ever growing community of like minded compulsives,some considerably more demented than I.
Yet,still in the back of my mind was the feeling that my family and freinds' concern and confusion wasn't entirely unfounded. So,getting to the point (finally ! you say) I have decided, in an unprecedented fit of self control, to limit myself to a small degree concerning future purchases.My New Years resolution is to NOT purchase a new light while i still have one in transit,via US Postal, Fed-Ex,UPS,etc. I hereby affirm that i will not click on another "add to cart" icon until my most recent purchase has safely arrived. So let it be written,so let it be done.(great Yul Brenner quote).
P.S. yes,i've been drinking.
