  1. So I’m on my long awaited vacation in Jamaica. First two nights not so great sleep, night three I finished Into the Water which had taken a while to get into, but it was another great recommendation from you and well worth hanging in. So it’s like 11 pm and I open up “Where they found her” and read until I was done at close to 5 am, I blamed the resort noise and uncomfortable bed to hide my addiction…books. Yes I went to sleep after 5 am when my husband was up for the day. I pleaded for some good sleep and told him to go do resort stuff without me, I needed sleep badly. He understood. So I was up and immediately downloaded the cellar and it triggered my brain immediately that this was not a fall asleep book even at page 3. I forced myself to put it down at like page 89 and go to sleep for two hours and woke up to try and recoup some resort time. All the while wondering when I could get back to my book. By 1pm I was at swim up bar, by 5pm we’d been liquored up enough to decide a nap was in order before dinner. After seriously like 9 hours of sleep over the previous three days, I crashed. I woke up at 11:47pm, my husband was asleep, we’d missed the resort returnee dinner and free gift, but I needed that sleep. I needed more but instead I pulled out my book and read for two hours before forcing it out of my hand to go to sleep, my addict brain pounding, knowing my fix was nearby but I had to push through the pain. Which leads to 5:47 wake up and I’m reading again. Husband is awake and I’m trying to figure out how to pretend to be asleep and read at the same time. So we go through resort Day 4 and yeah! He’s tired and needs a nap. I set the alarm so “we can nap” and at first snore I pull out my drug…I mean book, and I’m 7/8 done by the time alarm goes off. Resort activities abound. I have no pics, I had fun, but bowed out on last activity scheduled bc of being tired (not a lie) but I had 30 remaining pages at home and a saved book that came out on 8/15. So here I am. Three books done in four days, saved book downloaded, my husbands “pretending to be interested bc I love her and other addictions are worse” face when I discuss a book character or situation like this is happening in real life, emblazoned in my brain like a screenshot for every time I see the supportive feign interest face. Reading is fundamental but at what point do I seek help from my higher power and 12 steps of reading addiction?
