Yep i'm addicted!! Someone call Dr. Phil! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have been watching the Young and the Restless since I was about 15. When I was working full-time I used to tape it...(That is so sick). Now I can go for weeks without watching it but I still like to catch up; when I can (lets face it, it isn't hard to do). :lol: :lol:

But wait; the list goes on!!!!

I also regularly watch: The bold and the beautiful and Days of our Lives! OMG things are worse than I thought. BECAUSE THERE IS MORE!!!! :oops:

Neighbours! (It is an Australian soap opera on every night at 7pm for half an hour). I even have my children addicted to it because they have been watching it since before they could speak!!! :wink:

Maybe I need detox? :idea: :?: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Days of our Lives, I just know that from Friends although I've heard it exists and that Jennifer Aniston's father is in it. What is it like?

Pretty ~ ridiculous but you just get into it. You watch the same people for like 20 years. People age overnight (children) but the adults never do.... :lol: :lol: Her Dad hasn't been in it for ages he played Victor Kiriakus (spelling is probably wrong). You should check out the web-site. Don't you get Days of our Lives in your country?

Oh well Dixie you aren't missing much it is the most boring show on television. As I said before you can pretty much not watch it for 12 months; then tune in one day and pick up where you left off. That is how slow it is.

I heard a story though about an elderly lady (she was in her late 90's). She loved her soap operas and watched them everyday for years and years. One day a friend came to see her and told her that you can get up-dates on the soap operas on the internet and proceeded to tell her what was going to happen to her favorite characters in the coming weeks. The next day the elderly woman was found dead in her house. :cry: Maybe these shows gave her something to look forward to everyday and once that was taken from her she just didn't care.

How sad is that! So obviously soap operas mean alot to some people (thank god i'm not that bad!) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
