Hello. My name is Susie. And I'm an addict. My drug of choice is The Sims. At first, I could play The Sims a few days a week, for an hour or two, at most. Then, I found the cheat codes, ways to make The Sims richer than god, make them fall in love or fight or run away or even light themselves on fire. Now....now, it's a daily habit. And I could play all day, stopping only to refill my Diet Coke glass or go to the bathroom. Then I discovered the Expansion Packs- Double Deluxe, House Party, Unleashed and now I can't stop. All I do is wonder which family member I can get to buy me another expansion pack for Christmas- Sims Vacation, Sims Hot Date, Sim Magic!!!! This is the worst part of my addiction- I talk about them to my husband all day, as though they were real people. I defend their actions, my actions, and the time I spend creating them. My addiction has even made his own X Box addiction pale in comparison. I wish I could quit..I wish I could find the power to quit on my own, to be able to say with certainty that I will never play again....but I can't. The demon inside me still wants to play...and I'm not strong enought to fight it. Someone, anyone....please save me from myself!!!!!!!! Btw- go to thesims.com . It rocks!!

What about creative. You actually sound like a movie scipt writer in training, or a researcher for a fiction novel you're about to start. What if you actually wrote it out, and/or used this as template for an autobiography? Or, how about creating scenarios that could be turned over to the network of your choice soap opera? Sometimes a creative 'addiction' is a positive outlet that demands expression. I wouldn't quit but perhaps dig a little deeper & find out what makes this so fulfilling & do it in a bigger, public way.

Gidget- the most important cheat code (and the only one I use regularly) is the money code- do a ctrl/shift/c and when the window pops up, type rosebud . This gives you a thousand dollars. Do ctrl/shift/c again and then do !; to repeat the previous command- I usually do !;!;!;!; about 200 times (cut and paste using the hot keys otherwise it'll suck) and then I've got millionaires that have the best houses and best parties.

LOL- I just realized how crazy I sound!! Anyway, email me or AIM/yahoo IM me if you didnt quite get it
