Default 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?
