How can I fight an addiction to online contests?

Question by Inno: How can I fight an addiction to online contests?
I love online contests, I compete in many and I win almost 1 every 3 days. I like the prizes (books, DVDs, cosmetics, gadgets and so on) but I like even more to see my name on the winners list.

    It depends on how serious the addiction is. Maybe u could block sites like thoes and ask someone else to key in a password so u wouldnt be able to log in. Lol Im not much help.

    Though, I’m glad u’ve realised ur addicted. You’ve take the 1st step. Congrats! Everyone around can only help u, if ur willing to help urself in the first place 🙂

    If all else fails, get some professional help. See a consellor & talk ur problem out. A listening ear helps aswell 🙂

    I wish for nothing but for ur well being.

    take care.
