How addicted to cubing are you?

Like, what would you do if you didn't have a cube for a week?
I would watch youtube vids, tv, hulu, and go on speedsolving.
It all doesn't work for me :(

On Youtube I'll go watch Rubik's cube videos and that makes it even worse
I never watch TV
Hulu isn't available in The Netherlands, but if I go watch a Family Guy video I'm pausing it every 5 minutes or so because I thought I heard the doorbell ring >.>
And on Speedsolving it's the same as when I watch Youtube.

This sucks so bad, and the worst part is that there was only 1 shipping type available and that was the 10-45 day one.

I've only got one cube. It broke last night. This morning I did a charity swim and I came home and slept. When I woke up I looked for my cube and saw it in pieces and immediately ordered a new cube. I literally think I'm going through cube withdrawal

No, there only is one single explanation for this. You suffer from CRD, which stands for Chronic Rubik's Disorder. It's an uncurable disease.

Syndroms:

-shaky hands
-twiches
-lack of motivation for any mental or physical activity
-lack of interest for any proposal to any physical or mental activity
-massive amount of hour watching YT vids of Nakajima's 6.57 second solve
-unconsciously play with any object that come across you hands


yet, there is a way to rid yourself of the symptoms:

-play with a Rubik's cube
-play with a Rubik's cube over Gabbasoft
-Play with a Rubik's cube over facebook's application (although it sucks)


the best solution is the first one, by far.

I started cubing under a year ago but own over 70 and am about to make a $200+ order. I'm pretty sure I'm an addict.

I used to take my cube with me everywhere I went, but I realised that this was pointless, because I never used it, and if I dropped it, it would shatter.

Now, I only take it where I will actually use it. I have taken it to restaurants, but only when there is another/other cuber(s) there, and I will be there for a while with nothing to do.

When I get the time, though, I will usually spend it cubing, but I put homework before cubing.

My collection is of about 50 puzzles of about $10 each.

I usually take a cube with me when ever I am in a car or a bus and waiting to arrive to my destination.
I always have a cube with me when I am on the computer. Load times are perfect for solves.
I also bring it to restaurants and other places where I have to wait.

I am not insanely fast but I do have a farely large collection. When ever I am at the mall with some of my friends, I pick out cube shaped objects in stores as well as colorful items that could resemble a cube.

I enjoy watching videos of cubing on Youtube and I visit the cube4you, lightake, and V-Cube websites nearly every day.

So I like cubing... a lot!

I like cubing a lot, but I'm not that addicted.

I don't really like to bring my cube into public places, because it draws attention and I don't like attention.

If I was stuck without a cube, I would just read.

And I cube about 30 minutes on weekdays, on weekends maybe about an hour, but not really more than that.
