    I know what you mean about addiction. Every time I go shopping Stateside I come home and think "why the hell did I buy THAT movie ?"

    Glad my wife is very understanding

    My mrs doesn't understand at all. When I work nights I'm sitting in front of my PC and I'm checking out all the sites and working out how much cheaper one is than the other. Still most of my buy's have been from DVDBOXOFFICE.

    I think that they'll have DVD Buyers Anonymous soon, cause I'm sure I'm addicted.

    Cheers

    I've only ever bought a handful of movies on VHS, always rented them.

    Since there's nowhere to rent DVD's locally at present I too have been buying them regularly (I have a collection od approx 40 so far).

    Makes you wonder if DVD sales will drop through the floor when everywhere is renting them out?

    I have the enthusiasm to be a DVD addict, just not the funds (especially with the current NZ exchange rate). Hiring is pretty cheap.

    I own about 20 titles compared to the libraries some people have ! However I still spend a lot of time on the internet reading forums, reviews and comparing online prices.

    As a bit of an addict, I have been secrectly seen in a certain "BlockBuster" outlet, renting the bleeding things for £3.50 a pop, now that is seriously bad....addict, you bet, especially as I watch then about 3 or 4 times, so buy from Canada or America and save a bundle...

    Damn right it's addictive.
    I find myself wandering around online, and before I blink, my credit card is in hand at some R1 site typing in an order.
    Is there no cure?
    Even lottery winnings, how long would they last?

    does that count as being addicted?

    I have moved from ordering instock new titles to scanning the pre-orders for the new R1 movies....Does checking every 2 days constitute an addict, my wife thinks so?
