Addictions

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?

    Hello my name is razorreilly09 and I'm a fly fishing addict

    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?

    Fly Fishing dependence, or addiction, as defined by the DSM-IV, is indicated by the presence of three or more of the criteria listed below in the last 12 months. Note that all but the first two criteria reflect some form of loss of control over the use of or effects of the drug.

    Tolerance: Does the patient tend to need more of fly fishing over time to get the same effect?

    Withdrawal symptoms: Does the patient experience withdrawal symptoms when he or she does not fly fish?

    Continued use of Flyfishing despite harm: Is the patient experiencing physical or psychological harm from the fly fishing?

    Loss of control: Does the patient take to fly fishing in larger amounts, or for longer than planned?
    Attempts to cut down: Has the patient made a conscious, but unsuccessful, effort to reduce his or her fly fishing use?
    Salience: Does the patient spend significant time obtaining or thinking about fly fishing, or recovering from its effects?
    Reduced involvement: Has the patient given up or reduced his or her involvement in social, occupational or recreational activities due to fly fishing?

    Substance abuse, as defined by the DSM-IV, involves a maladaptive pattern of substance use resulting in significant negative physical, social, interpersonal or legal consequences. Unlike substance dependence, the criteria for abuse do not include tolerance, withdrawal or a pattern of compulsive or uncontrolled use.

    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

    Fly Fishing's not an addiction, it's an affliction.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    The 'CAGE' questionnaire...
    2 or more "YES" responses indicate the possibility of Addiction & should be investigated further...

    Have you ever felt the need to Cut down on your Fly Fishing ?
    Have people Annoyed you by criticizing how much you Fly Fish ?
    Have you ever felt Guilty about your Fly Fishing ?
    Have you ever felt the need to Fly Fish first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or sooth the craving to Fly Fish ?
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!
