    So where do I start? I am an "admitted" crackberry user. My addiction has become obvious to me over the past 2 years. That being said; I'm looking for a feasible way of breaking my addiction. I've been a "Blackberry" user since 1999. On top of that; my job enables my addiction by connecting my blackberry to the corp "email" server. Thereby, synchronizing business emails 24/7.

    It was a fact to me that I'm addicted to my blackberry, when my "fiance" decided to hide my blackberry because of my excessive use. This was in the early part of 2007, and remember I've been using the blackberry consistently since 1999. After the first 10 minutes of my discovering my blackberry was missing; I exploded. I was actually ready to do physical combat with my fiance. He had never seen this side of me throughout the 5 years of our relationship. I flipped out so bad, he had no choice but to immediately give my blackberry back.

    This was the moment I realized that I was severly addicted to Blackberry. So how do I start the recovery process? Why is recovery important? What are the disadvantages of a "crackberry addict" mentally, and physically?

    All comments are welcome.

    Meh. Forget the recovery. Just keep crackin' BlackBerrys rock!

    you could probably call me the enabler. I would make a terrible sponsor.

    Why BerryWhite is it not good for your health? It keeps you in touch with family, friends, co-workers. It's stress free when everything is working on the device.

    Mine is with me 24/7............even if it is just laying next to me I feel better. When I see that green light flashing, I am a happy camper. lol

    Hi Berry!

    I have that same problem when I post on the wap site..... and it seems that the wap site doesn't even update on either Hobson or Cherry.

    Checking my BB is the last thing I do at night and the first thing I do in the morning. I'm completely hooked, and I've only had it for a week. The best part is that I know the addiction is only going to get better.

    My name is Phil. I'm an IT Manager and I've just switched my company from WM devices to these wonderful Blackberry 8820s! Currently got two devices, one for the MD and one for me.

    So far I'm loving the configurability and managability of the whole BES setup. Got the whole system switched in less than two days which I'm happy with. The BES install was simple and straightforward and the phones are a joy to work with.

    Wait until you go through the IT policy and see all the things you can control. I've been preaching BES to any company that I not only work for but also consult for. So far every company that I've shown BES to and the configurations of has moved over to BB's. If your in health care, it just makes it so much easier to follow the laws and when it comes down to the audit's that you need to go through, BES makes the auditors a lot happier.

    I'm Christine and I'm a CrackBerry addict. I've had my current berry since december but am hoping to get an 8320 soon. My addiction is so bad for the 8320 that I've been watching the Blackberry 101 on in at least once a day and am still finding little things that I didn't see the first time. XDD
