You know you're addicted when... You have to replace two strips of carpeting four times a year at each end of your longest hallway.

Titleist07: I haven't yet figured out the "brakes" in my bedroom carpet, but I sure know the "breaks". I thought the only "brakes" in golf were one inch from the hole on a real green! (Just jibbin' at ya' pal, I know it was a typo).

You're a golf addict if you spend 7 weeks resarching your first set of clubs, watching eBay everyday, making a chart of the serious bidders (your competion), finally getting the lowest bid ever won, then checking back periodically over the next two months to see if anyone has ever purchased your set at a lower price and jumping for joy because the bids have now gone up almost $200 and you saved 45% off the retail price!
