Addicted to Cryptograms
 
The puzzle answer was: "Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism." Carl Jung. Pootie wrote in the comments box "or cryptograms".

After realizing I couldn't definitively say whether I'm addicted or not to cryptograms, I thought maybe we could initiate a little self-help via the forum, with a first step of making a checklist for diagnostic purposes. (After that, we can move on to treatment options...) So here's a start:

You know you're a cryptogram addict when:

1. Cryptograms.org is set as your default homepage on your web browser. (Mine isn't, so so far I'm good.)

Next?

You know you're a cryptogram addict when:
 
2. You try to place letters in the squares of your chess board. :D

It seems that you're hooked if you...
 
3. You cannot make a decision or resolve any of your current problems without first revealing a message possibly hidden within the next cryptoquote to be solved.

4. You send text messages to your spouse in cryptogram form.

Lily, you stole mine!

6. You try to "solve" odd-sounding street names as you're driving.

7. When every time you are innocently checking your email or surfing the web and your spouse says, "What are you doing .... solving?"
