    Blackberry "enthusiast" sounds a whole lot better than "addict". How come only Blackberry folk are called "addicts" - when you can have some nutter playing online games 24hrs a day eating, sleeping, drinking in a closed, darkened room that smells like an armpit - and they are called a "games enthusiast" or "IT enthusiast" Maybe alcoholics should be called beer or wine enthusiasts

    So, any suggestions? Blackberry "experts", "enthusiasts", "Pro's", "Blackberrians?"

    Since you find the term "addict" to have a negative overtone...

    I think we should refer to you as a "BlackBerry Junkie" from now on, just to rub it in

    I understand "addict" as we're on a site with "crack" in it. But enthusiast does have a nice ring to it as well.

    You all are in denial...if you've never tried crack, which I'm going on someone else's word here, you are "hooked" from the first hit. Who can deny they were hooked at first touch? That's what I thought...you can come up with all the PC names you want, but you all got it bad. We are ADDICTS!!

    Wikipedia:

    Addiction was a term used to describe a devotion, attachment, dedication, inclination, etc. Nowadays, however, the term addiction is used to describe a recurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences to the individual's health, mental state or social life. The term is often reserved for drug addictions but it is sometimes applied to other compulsions, such as problem gambling, compulsive overeating and Blackberrys.

    addiction 1. being abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming (especially alcohol or narcotic drugs) 2. an abnormally strong craving

    I think this describes the relationship I have with my berry.

    Seems to me that "addict" really best describes the group. I now believe we really are all "addicted" to our Berrys. None other are like us...

    I can be a tad sarcastic at times. Just my sense of humor. Eh don't know what to say about that. Just trying to make a joke but I guess I lose some of that in typed words huh?

    Have a great one
