You make VB your home page.<br><br>
You keep VB on its own separate tab and open everything else in new tabs.<br><br>
You forgo sleep, food and even going to the bathroom because you can't get off VB for even a minute.<br><br>
You keep refreshing the site again and again in case somebody has just posted in a thread you like.<br><br>
You get infuriated when you create a new thread and several minutes go by before someone posts in it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
You ask for important medical advice from VB members before consulting offline professionals.<br><br>
You ask for important life changing advice from VB members because you trust their responses more than from anyone you know offline.<br><br>
You start a new thread about a certain HBO series on VB instead of going to Michael's new HBO forum to discuss it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:"><br><br>
You consider buying a smart phone or another electronic device that can connect to the internet, such as a Kindle, just so you're never without VB even if your computer goes on the fritz.<br><br>
You have a panic attack if VB goes down for even ten minutes.<br><br>
You don't recognize half the names of your Facebook friends because they're using their real names and not their VB usernames on Facebook.<br><br>
You mention "slutting" offline and people look at you all weird-like. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"> You mention "slutting" on VB and people know exactly what you mean.

You know you're addicted to VeggieBoards...<br><br>
when you are thrilled to buy snacks for someone you've never met and ship them halfway around the world!<br><br>
when you know how to use black salt and use it often<br><br>
when you frequently ask grocery store workers if they carry products they've never heard of - <i>yet</i> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sneaky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shifty:"><br><br>
when you have a quick answer for "why are you a veg*n?"<br><br>
when you <i>know</i> to go to a wedding with a larabar in your pocket <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

... when you read an interesting news article elsewhere on the internet and immediately come to VB to share it.<br><br>
... when you know which fast food chains have vegetarian and/or vegan food - in countries you've never visited!<br><br><br>
I'm sure I'll come up with more later.<br><br>

... you see an attractive celebrity and the first thing that pops into your head is, "Oooh, I gotta post about this person in the Celebrities / famous people you find attractive" thread.<br><br>
... you plan on visiting just as though it's any other activity you do on a more or less daily basis, like working out, meal preparation, etc. and you have to plan around it.<br><br>
... you get E-mail notifications for replies to threads you've participated in, and by the time you're done going through those you don't have time to even look at New Posts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
... you can think of a million and one reasons why any random VB member should be banned.<br><br>
... you find yourself asking yes or no questions.<br><br>
... you have an uncanny ability to predict what other people are doing, will be doing, etc.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

You get email notifications on PMs you've received, friendship requests sent to you, and new visitor messages in your profile, but by the time you see those emails, you've already read the PM's and the VM's and responded to the friendship requests.<br><br>
Everything that happens in your life gets posted on VB right away, but your offline friends and family members don't find out for days or even weeks.

How about when you fall in love with someone you've never met, then get together and decide to move to a brand new country, get married and have a kid, all for the love of VeggieBoards?

haha I knew there were other threads like this one, but I didn't want to bother searching for them. And all those people who are no longer on VB! It makes me depressed to see their names! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

You know you're addicted to VeggieBoards when you plan to take a three-month break and can't even stay away for a whole week! God how embarrassing. Is there a twelve-step group for people addicted to VeggieBoards?

When you expect your husband to get just as mad as you about people, with whom you disagree, in the Heap.

...When you get screwed over by your internet company you use your kindle to log onto VB, even though it's impossible to multi-quote.<br><br>
...When your car breaks down, and you tell VB members before your family.
