Me neither but I can empathize with the fans who do since I went through my own soap addiction in college. Days of Our Lives. Watched it every weekday for two years until I finally got clean. Actually, I graduated and started working, which was what really cured me. It's kind of hard to catch a show that's on at 1PM Monday through Friday when you work full time. And, I didn't want to become a 'taper' - one of those people who gets home from a full day of work and looks forward to watching my 'stories.' I felt that would really be hitting rock bottom. So, I let it go.
Today, I am grateful ~
1/ that I no longer care who's trying to kill Marlena and whether Stefano has returned to Salem
2/ but mostly that Real Housewives
3/ and Bethenny Ever After are still on the air. Isn't there a saying about replacing one addiction for another?
