You're addicted when:

Your friday night drinking buddies call and ask if you wanna go out and you reply "Sorry, I'm charging batteries".

You can tell how fast the wind is to +-1mph by looking at trees and flagpoles.

Go to work sick as a dog so you can use alloted sick days for flying.

Willfully transform yourself from night owl to morning person to take advantage of lighter winds.

The total resale value of your airplanes is higher than the resale of the vehicle you drive every day.

You know you are an addict when...

...You think your job description includes...researching a scale build and checking out the threads on rcgroups all day long.

...You miss appointments, miss work, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc....because you thought you were only working on your plane build for an hour when actually you haven't come out of your workshop in weeks.

You know you are an R/C addict when....

....you look forward to the holidays because that's when all the r/c shops have their sales.

....your wife bakes Christmas treats for the UPS guy.

....your 2 year old nephew always carries around and reads his Thomas the Train catalogs because he sees his uncle always carrying around and reading his R/C magazines.

....you develop your own aviation/airplane curriculum for your 3rd grade class science unit so you can bring in and fly your planes at school.

....you plan your schedule around R/C conventions and shows.

I need help. I think another plane will cure my disease.
