I love the title of this tread, when i read it i heard "hi alex!!!!" in my ears. I started playin serious last november and sometimes i think that when im home im not feel like doing anything that is not related to poker, yesterday i came home from 12 houra shift at work, sat in front of computer and started playing, this mourning i woke up played till 6pm, with brakes and went to 12 hours night shift, now im at work, cant play but im on CC whole time...
Sometimes i think of ace on the river, if you didnt read it, at least read dedicated to, remember when i read it to my wife she start crying, i almost have tears in my eyes whenever i think of it or whenever talk about it. Dont let poker affect your social life and dont justify it with trying to make life better.
