Similarly, do you feel a euphoric rush of excitement if there are games available to be moved in...
I know I do.
You've described a key ingredient of addiction - the ones that don't fulfill make the ones that do seem so much sweeter. It's the possibility of failure making success so intoxicating. Doesn't really matter if this is in winning a game, or waiting for opponents to move, a hand in cards, a drink fix, a drug fix, chocolate, football euphoria or even just waiting for a response to a forum post....ooohh lets just have one more!
I'll be back soon to see what you say about this...maybe this is the big one, maybe this post is going to get everyone talking ...maybe some nut job will hurl abuse at me...maybe someones going to be denial and call this all psychobabble... oh yes...refresh! refresh! refresh!
Of course I'm not affected by any of this.
Edit: Well maybe not as much as some people.
