    You know that you are a flashaholic when you walk into a dark room, the first thing that you do is not to look for a light switch, but reach for your flashlight.

    You know you're a flashaholic when a friend buys a cheap flashlight and you can tell then which LED it uses and whether or not it uses PWM for mode control.

    When your EDC bag contains enough battery power to keep you illuminated for a year and a half using low mode. You know, just in case you get stuck somewhere for a long time... in the dark.

    When you show off a light to someone and forget to tell them to NOT look at it when they turn it on, because that's something you learned not to do years ago and is no longer something you have to think about.

    When you spend half a Sunday a month checking battery charge, O-ring and thread condition, and add lube as appropriate of course, and then check that each mode works... twice.

    And of course, you do this with the curtains drawn to stare at the awesomeness of your light's output.

    When you use your s10 to find your TN31 and then use the TN31 to find the T.V. remote.

    This just happened to me last night. I showed off my fenix e15. My friend was drunk and underestimated the size of the light. She held it at mouth level, looked at the light and turned it on.

    ...you see someone you see someone whip out a flashlight and you are already thinking about how exactly you will show yours off.
    ...the lights go out, but you don't even notice because you already have a flashlight in hand.
    ...you turn all the house lights off from the bedroom to the farthest point in the house and then go to bed with a flashlight.
    ...you have to spend DAYS evey 6 months to check all your flashlight batteries.
    ...your colleagues call you Mr. Flashlight.
    ...the shipper at the office knows it's a flashlight when he sees a package with your name on it.
    ...people hide their faces in fear when you want to show them your new light.
    ...you carry so many lights with you on a 4 hour night hike that you don't need to change a single battery, but always have at least 300 lumens on.
    ...you have carried a backpack full of flashlights.
    ...you take pictures of flashlights and beam profiles.
    ...you receive free flashlights for review.


    But most importantly:
    When you feel naked because you don't have a flashlight on you, but you're only out for a short walk and it's high noon on a sunny day.

    1) When you go out and have lights on key chain, around your neck, and in your pants and jacket pockets.. plus a few in the car.

    2) You buy lights just because they are clearance priced or spawn a large thread..

    You get woken by a bump in the night and realise it was one of your flashlights falling off your bedside table.

    Or (for me anyway) you reseach and research.
    Then buy a light for edc.
    Receive said torch and decide thats a REALLY nice light.
    Then decide its way too nice for edc and you have to buy something else.
    Therefore continuously repeating the cycle.
    That describes me right about now.

    You're driving home at night and it's foggy. You speed because you want to look at beam profiles in the fog. You almost get into an accident because you're thinking about which 10 lights out of 30 that you want to play with.

    a real flashalolic already has his 10 favorite with him, pulls over to play with them immediately. and then shoots the beam out the sunroof on the rest of the trip home.
