    In my opinion, you are addicted when:

    a) You don't go anywhere without some form of camera (phone, compact etc)
    b) You never think that any of your pics are "The perfect picture" and always critisise the tiniest details
    c) Everything you see seems to have potential for being a nice pic.

    plz add more!

    Hmm.... I'd say im addicted :D

    Regarding A) - The Canon mainly goes most places if going out but I'm actually think of putting the Kodak P&S in my bag in case I've not taken the Canon lol Have to say I havent used my phone's camera for a 'proper' pic.

    b) - I actually agree on that one in regards to myself- I'm getting really picky with my pics - probably more so than i should really - I think in ways that posting on here and getting critique makes you more aware of things that previously I may not have noticed were wrong (i mean this in a good way)

    c) No - I tend to only look out for interesting things now usually.

    Additions to that list

    D) you start thinking gee i might really need a particular lens/piece of equipment for something - And start looking around for them even before you actually even have a need for it lol

    x2

    f) You nod politely and die inside a little when your friends HAVE to show you a picture they took with their phone on spring break of the hotel pool, because they think they could "Sell it" it's so good.

    g) You check craigslist 5 times a day trying to score a sweet deal on a new lens.

    A) You know what a "StopGap" is.

    B) Your list of no longer produced gear value surpasses the value of your car.

    C) You carry not one but TWO compacts in your briefcase for work

    D) You Know how to use a camera with out Batteries.

    E) You somehow end up buying a new camera when turning in film

    F) you burn a roll of film in the afore mentioned new camera before getting to the drug store

    G) You start finding and identifying the SLR in porn images

    Ok enough of my personal experiances for now, maybe I'll share more later....
