I'm not aware of pron affecting your body negatively.


There are medical studies that have shown that watching porn releases chemicals in your body that can cause a physical addiction just as strongly as an recreational drug. And I'm pretty sure having any sort of physical addiction is not good for your own body.


This is very true. Porn can be dangerously addictive.

HOWEVER

I fear the same can be said for BGG Werewolf. blush

WW is neither addictive nor time consuming.

When recruiting me, SuperChutney assured me that BGG WW would take no more than 15-20 minutes a day... whistle

And as my infrequent games and low post counts can attest to, he wasn't misleading at all.

...is denial also a sign of addiction? shake

Yeah, what were his exact words again?

SuperChutney in VGG Werewolf wrote:
Time Commitment/Particpation:
A general minimum is a post a cycle, but typically you'd want to get three-to-five posts at least from each player. Time commitment depends on what's happening (the first day requires a lot less participation than a final-three showdown, for example) but I'd say about twenty minutes to an hour for the more intense periods -- it really depends from player to player. Some players pop in once a day and post their analysis and leave again, while others check back frequently throughout the day, react to whatever is happening, and hang around to see if there are any responses. I'd recommend checking in twice a day (even if it's just a two-minute read), but it's not required.

Hi, my name is Guenhwyvhar, and I am a BGG WW addict. I've been addicted to this site for four years now, and I'm a better person because of it.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Thirded. I lost interest in WW, so I dumped it. I like the people, so I hang around.

Okay, so I was joking.

I'm here looking for a good, clean hug.

This is sort of crossover to other threads, but I have been dieting this week. Not a weight loss diet because I'm thin, but an eat healthy diet and one to reduce a bit of inflammation I've been having. I really miss bread and crackers. And cheese. And milk. And sugar.

I'm right now stuck in the middle of a 'oh crap. I'm paying way too much attention to WW phase." and I have another game probably starting on Monday.

Helloooo...
My name is Amanda, and as Geniesse describes me, I am a 'hugger', so I came for the free hugs and to rave about OC WWers.

Without the OC WWers, I would never have gotten to know the people I know so well now. I can say with complete honesty that I have made friends that will last a lifetime because of my gaming addiction. Most especially
