im fucking addicted

its almost 12:30 am, i need to wake up in 5 hours and go to work so that i can spend all the money i am making going skydiving. instead im browsing these forums all night long and watching skydiving videos on youtube.

im losing touch with most of my whuffo friends, i haven't played my drumset in months, my family thinks i've gone crazy. they even had an intervention.

skydiving was the one thing i told myself i would never do. all it took was one horrible day and an "i dont give a fuck" attitude, and jumping off a plane was the first thing that popped in my head.

i mean, fuck, even if i do the math it makes no sense. ive already spent a total of about $2,500, drove about 17 hours, got dumped, risked my life 13 times... for about 6.5 minutes of freefall.

ya go ahead and flame me you assholes. i'll still love you all because you guys know how to live.

blue skies.

The costs only get worse, though the rewards do get better.

On the upside... uh... tents are nice?

Ive found myself turning left to the DZ when I should have turned right to go to work, lucky for me the free wifi at the DZ lets me telecomute between loads

Hi everyone. My name is Mat and I'm a skydiver.



I think we might need to work on a 12 step program. B|



12 steps are for quitters!

dude im sitting in my cubile as we speak doing practice touches! I dont sit on the couch anymore, i watch tv on the floor in my natural arch. i took up yoga just to get better at freefly. I get nervous when I put on a backpack cause its too light and i cant feel my pilot chute. I look at my watch in the afternoon and freakout for a second thinking its my altitude. Yeah my name is Aatif and I am an addict

Yes yes, I remember how I used to exit the bus or stepped on to cross the street, watching for the wind and so :D. Great stuff. Was even changing hands in case of hurting right.

Yeah, my name is Sink Air and I choose to be an addict

Whenever I reach for my wallet my other hand automatically goes over my head. I get weird looks whenever I check out at Starbucks but they're getting used to it. :)
My name is Jeff. and I'm a parachutist. There are no 12-step programs for skydivers. You can only treat the symptoms ....... by jumping more.

Now I know where my support group meets!
AFF4 and I find myself looking at the bottom of the clouds thinking I should be looking down on them.
I was telling people when they asked how I was (Above the ground below the sky another good day). Now what do I tell them!!!!
