    ...When you have interviews with yourself in your own head. I always find it more interesting than the in-game press conferences. I feel wierd admitting this, I know I do it but now I've typed it out it's finally dawned on me what a pathetic human being I have become.

    When it's just past 1am, you've got a University exam in 8 hours, and you're still playing because if you quit the game your amazing run of form WILL come to an end.

    You know you're addicted to Football Manager when..... the forum goes down and you check if it's back up yet 10+ times a day religiously until miraculously one day it IS back up and you can't stop grinning ear-to-ear because now you can finally find those stadium background pics you've been waiting for for ages.....

    (Note. When I say "you check if it's back up yet 10+ times a day..." I obviously mean the forum, the website.... not me kn*b.... so I don't need viagara thank you very much bloomin' SPAMMERS!!!)

    When you find out your FM players are some how free agents in real life and consider contacting clubs on their behalf because you know they are stars. Not that you're biased or anything......

    My problem is playing in Full Screen Mode. No watch so no concept of real time. I have lost about a year over the life span of CM and FM. My record is 3 days straight without realising. Whilst unemployed loaded a save up on Friday morning and the next thing I know is my apartment block fire alarm test was going on a Monday morning, only felt like a few hours.

    You wonder why it's so hard for Wenger to buy players with a large transfer budget and small wage budget -- all he has to do is adjust the slider.

    When you are watching the draw for one of the cups taking place you imitate the voice off the BBC i.e:
    FA Cup 3rd Round
    Arsenal will play Tottenham Hotspur
    AFC Wimbledon are at home to Bolton Wanderers
    Liverpool against Everton etc.

    I'm doing that every time for a cup competition.

    Also, when you go to a live match or watching match/ highlights on TV you are on a scouting mission for your FM game.

    Same!

    When you point the middle finger out of nowhere at the screen and screams 'That was a f^%&ing goal! Damn them refs! They hate us!'
    When you quickly switch to 'only commentary' and fast forward a game you're down by 3 goals.
    When you play football manager sitting down on the train's floor, for the journey to and back from school.
    When this year's FM comes out on your birthday and that is your ideal birthday gift. (yay)
    When you are seriously considering naming your future son Lionel.

    When you dont understand how that player scores 50 goals for you in the game, yet you watch him miss every goal opportunity every Sunday. You obviously know better than the coach, right ?

    When you know most youngsters that are now playing regularly because you discovered them in earlier FM versions.

    you are displaying numerous visible physical signs of withdrawal knowing that in an hour everybody else is going to be playing FM12...

    should cold turkey be this hard?

    I mean... I'm shaking so badly I can't hold anything... got a bit of fat finger typing too.. I might hide the car keys so I don't drive to Tesco's (hmm.. ??)

    Ditto

    Also, when you stand outside the room when you have a touchline ban, or when you set up a press conference with yourself and your new signing who can't speak english (a pillow) at 4 in the morning

    Or when your in your english class and realise you've just used up 6 notebook pages by drawing out all possible tactics you could use for your next cup game
    You Scare Me :~

    When you call your girlfriend late at night because the club is going to build a new stadium named after you. Then you go back to the game and start read the message many times, imagining how it would look like. Finaly, you draw it on piece of paper.

    I'm afraid that would involve getting up wouldn't it. No, I'll be sticking to defecating into my makeshift toilet/chair.

    When you choose to discuss with friends your current save status in FM12 instead of talking about the weekend results from your favorite football league.

    When you are with your mates, somebody mentions a player they would like to see move to their club and you respond with "nah, they were awful for me at *insert team name here*".

    When playing a real football match yourself, you command your team-mates to:

    Exploit the flanks
    Get stuck in
    Get ball forward
    Hassle opponents

    When you're managing a third tier Spanish club and get so involved you find their website so you can play the club anthem in Spanish before key games.

    When you're convinced that you're a better manager than the one at the club you support. Yes Sir Alex, I'm talking about you!
