RxPG affects every part of the nervous system, including the pleasure centre of the brain. When doctors ask why I log here, I say:


icon_arrow.gif RxPG helps in studies and increases concentration.


icon_arrow.gif RxPG helps ME to relax


RxPG addiction develops very rapidly when an individual continues to abuse RxPG by FREQUENTLY
icon_arrow.gif visitng Offbeat forum n
icon_arrow.gif interacting by ppl here n
icon_arrow.gif shouting in shout box...
icon_arrow.gif WORD ASSOCIATION GAME..

RxPG's addictive nature activates the brainís reward systems.

The promise of reward is very intense, causing the individual to continually crave RxPG and to focus his or her activities around logging to RxPG.

n tht reward is LOVE

The ability of RxPG to strongly activate the brain's reward mechanisms and its ability to chemically alter the normal functioning of these systems is what produces RxPG addiction.

RxPG also reduces a personís level of consciousness, harming the ability to think or be fully aware of present surroundings ...(mom complains we dont listen to anything whn logged to RxPG ) icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif

icon_arrow.gif severe aches in the back, abdomen, and legs (continuous sitting in front of comp )

icon_arrow.gif WEIGHT GAIN icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif


RxPG Withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to:

icon_arrow.gif irritatability

icon_arrow.gif anger

icon_arrow.gif restlessness

icon_arrow.gif yawning

icon_arrow.gif restless sleep

icon_arrow.gif kicking movements (if power is the reason for not able to login )


icon_arrow.gif insomnia

icon_arrow.gif muscle cramps

icon_arrow.gif nausea vomiting diarrhea icon_lol.gif

icon_arrow.gif severe sneezing (ppl miss me here na..!!)

icon_arrow.gif increases in body temperature, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and heart rate

RxPG withdrawal symptoms reach peak intensity in 3-6 hours.

Without logging in here withdrawal symptoms runs their course in 5 to 7 days, even though craving for RxPG may continue for months.

Tips for deaddiction!!!
Limited access to the offbeat section may help users get rid of this problem, I suppose.

For instance, every user, esp those who are about to take any exam, should be allowed to spend max of 90 min a day on the offbeat icon_smile.gif However, exceptions can be made.

What do you guys think about this suggestion?


Anyway, don't worry! Things will be alright once you are into a PG, cos you wont have that much time to come here icon_lol.gif

hey nice thread this one smiley24.gif ...m wuz really wanting to share details of my RXPG addiction syndrome with u guys....
not looking for any treatment though...
every RX has its share of adverse effects or sensitisation or ends up with the individual developing tolerance or tachyphylaxis....
In this regard.. i believe RXPG lives upto its name...and much beyond that... smiley14.gif
Especially recommended is the OFFBEAT forum.. smiley24.gif smiley24.gif
It is UNIQUE RX in the way that besides providing much needed relief in beating the PG blues away...the only side effect is the "patient" getting more and more addicted icon_rolleyes.gif ...Hence the "RXPG addiction syndrome..........
And one thing i can confidently bet upon is that none of u registered on this great site want to register for any De-addiction Therapy.....wotsay??

i am one among the voters who said no. i am spending time on study topics in RXPG; and posting in offbeat when my head starts to burn.
so how can i be called "addicted"? (of course i was a little over involved in my 1st 2/3 days but.... later... it became okay.)
RXPG is not just a chat site... we gain lot of great info thru this site.
So i think the term "Addicted" to RXPG is not appropriate.

Dear Dr. BGM...

i hope u don't mind but i don't think the word addiction is not appropriate.

ADDICTION means to crave for something......n as far as i'm concerned-- i get PULLED to the net(only for this site) whenever i get an ans to some Q asked or have some Q to be asked or else hav some views like this one to be shared ..n whenever i'm logged in i look anxiously for unanswered questions n also hunt for any informations that may help me .....n i get glued to this site as long as time permits or net is open for even the months that i spent with this site were not sufficient enough to go through the loads of information in this site or for that reason various informatns getting added each n everyday. so as long as rxpg keeps rocking( i wish for ever) i ll be addicted to it n for a good cause.

again i'm sure out of the present 33,500 registerd users...there ll be many who don't just visit when they r in need or when they r tired...but may be representing the other side of the same coin.. for every one registering here r surely not so serious n rational n wise not to make mistakes...and surely everyone in this site won't be cracking pg exams right....icon_sad.gificon_sad.gif
for that reason i feel i should also learn somethings from u.


so i personally believe ADDICTION is the right word to describe the feeling n that this particular thread ll surely help many people judiciously benifit from this site with valuable informations as given by u in this thread ... icon_smile.gif

thanks n bye

Rxpg addiction for me is like that famous ad, I think its for dairy milk........khanewalon ko khana ka bahana chahiye. icon_smile.gif
So I invariably find a reason to login to rxpg. I login if i study well or if i dont study well. I login if some exam results come or if some notification comes.Though neither i would hav written that exam nor i would be writing the one for which the notification has come.Besides I look for all that important info in the "offbeat" forum icon_lol.gif
So for just any reason i login to rxpg and tell my self that i had a really "important reason" to be here.
As for overcoming the addiction i am workin on it, one such deaddiction therapy is, I come here when i know i will have to leave in another 20 min for some important work. For instance when its almost dinner time i come over so that i am called in another 15-20min. But i am not really sure its working icon_lol.gif
