How do you know if you're officially addicted to something?
Do withdraws occur if you don't get what your body is addicted to? Is it more of a mental thing? If you are in fact addicted to something such as a substance or a ritual, is it lethal if you don't acquire said substance of act within a certain time period?
If you get a PO171 code default.
Them **** PO171 defaults!
I hate em!
So, when you discovered that fly fishing was having a negative impact on your well being and you tried to quit fly fishing, you discovered that you could not quit despite a sincere desire to do so?
Yeah, that is rough.
Tell me, when you feel ashamed that you cannot quit do you find relief in more fly fishing? Do you have cross addictions like trying to substitute bait fishing for fly fishing, but found that bait fishing still has the same negative impact?
I know the cure. :wink
and I can't sleep because I am to wound up after getting home.

Two additional points.
Reilly, fly fishing season in CO is just starting to get good so good luck.
I had the fly fishing Jones really good for about 20 years. My solution was to move to a part of the country where the fly fishing comparatively sucks, called Florida. :rotflmao
