I almost had to stop myself from coming to the Bee, but it really helps to be able to vent.  Sadly, i have not been able to cut myself away from all the sites, but I also don’t look at that many too often.  I have thought of going cold turkey, though, thinking that maybe it would make the anxiety of waiting go away a little.

Actually the bee is all I come to now. For some reason I just kinda stopped looking.. I guess i just got tired of the anxiety it created because I didn’t have a ring yet. I am so thankful that I stopped looking though. About a week ago however, I had a little mental breakdown to myself because it was the last day of summer and my bf told me he was going to propose at the end of summer also. But other than that I have been able to control my crazy, obsessive wedding thoughts by abstaining from wedding porn :)!

I’ve cut way back on looking at wedding stuff in the last month or so. It’s hard because I want to look, but I don’t have a ring yet. I check out the waiting board a couple of times a week and I realize there are ladies waiting just like me.

I’m in and out. Nothing constant. One week I may be sooo into looking at the wedding sites, dresses, cakes, etc. Then the next week I’ll be in a crappy mood over “waiting” and won’t want to look at anything. Sometimes it depends. I’m on the Bee DAILY! LOL…

You know what?  I looked at wedding stuff more when I was waiting!  Once I got engaged I was like oy I really have to plan this now.  And the more you try to restrict yourself, the worse it was for me at least.  Good luck with the self control 🙂

Yes!!! I had to get wedding sober too. I started the craziness LAST summer. Ugh. Although, I was fairly certain that a ring wasn’t coming for a while. Now I’ve got another probably 4-6 months.

I also am limiting myself to WB boards, primarily waiting, and recently have been getting better at taming my bee addiction through getting into other entertaining sites that you guys helped me find in a thread I posted a few days ago. You should check it out!!

I wish I could!! Some days when I am bored at work the temptation is just too much 🙂

I admire your self control!
