Has your BB use caused trouble at home? yes. Do you ever try to get "extra" BB use at a party because you do not get enough? yes. Do you tell yourself you can stop using your BB any time you want to, even though you keep using it when you don't mean to? yes. Have you missed paying attention to conversations because of your BB use?yes. Do you need your BB to get started, or to stop shaking? yes. This is a pretty sure sign that you are addicted to your BB.
    1. I have tried to stop using my BB several times in 4 years. The longest being about 1 year total.

    2. Yes my family doesn't understand why I'm always using my Pearl.

    3. Yes I get majorly distracted from doing things when I reply to an email, I.M., text or PIN message.

    4. I use my BB wherever I go when I do get to leave my house.

    5. I have said I can stup using it and done so but always come back to my BB.

    6. Yes but I have learned how to listen and BB at the same time.

    7. The first thing I do when I wake up is to check for new emails and posts here before I can do anything else, even going to the bathroom.

    Re: Crackberry Anonymous (CA)

    My therapist said the following to me. The brains of Crackberry addicted people "have been modified by the BB in such a way that absence of the BB makes a signal to their brain that is equivalent to the signal of when you are starving," says National Institute on Crackberry Abuse Director Dr. Marty Cohen. It is "as if the individual was in a state of deprivation, where using the BB is indispensable for survival. It's as powerful as that." So there you have it people your addiction explained......

    I took the test... I made my husband do the test.... They say that awareness is the first step in understanding your addictions.

    Re: Crackberry Anonymous (CA)

    Oh by the way Dr. Marty Cohen doesn't own a BB but does own a iphone. He states he has yet to see iphone users experience similar symptoms as BB users. He recently published an article in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here's a direct quote from the article:

    "This is not something that develops overnight for any individual," says Crackberry addiction expert Dr. Marty Cohen. "Generally there's a series of steps that individuals go through from experimentation and occasional use [to] the actual loss of control of use. And it really is that process that defines addiction."

    Re: Crackberry Anonymous (CA)

    I wanna take the test. I already know that I am not addicted! Just because I take it everywhere and have it with me always, and feel phantom vibes even when I don't have new messages- I have to check! But i am NOT an addict, LOL. BTW where do I take this test again. . . .

    Re: Crackberry Anonymous (CA)

    Am I considred an addict?
    My friends and I talk about something that we're not sure of the answer. I break out my BB and look it up on google.
    I swear I hear my txt tone every 5 mins even though I didnt get one
    I see my LED flash from the corner of my eye..... its not really flashing though
    I feel it vibrate in my pocket....but it didnt really vibrate
    I hit the kb to turn on the screen every few mins to see if I missed anything
    I take my BB and read my Viigo feeds while taking care of business (TMI I know)
    I simultaneously log onto pinstack via BB and PC
    The fist sites I visit when opening my PC broswer is this site and crackberry
    There's more but I cant think of any right now, cuz my BB is going off w/ PINs ......
    IM BACK w/ a new BB 8220!

    Do you have the need for speed? Then drive it like you stole it!
