I've been here four years (with previous name), and project another 30-60 years depending on how long I live.

On this website or as someone with SA?

I plan to be SA free (or almost) within the next 2-3 years. I don't know how long I'll be on here for, until I get sick of it I guess.

Honestly even if I do completely get over my SA I think I will be here, just so many great people I have met over the past 9 months who I wish to keep in contact with. Also would try to give as much advice in the forums as I can.

Your 100% in anything, even if you're not the best at it, is a success.

I don't think I'll ever be cured, not really. So I'm staying until I get fed up with it, which surprisingly hasn't happened yet.

I'll stick around here even when I'm "over" SA, because it's a nice place to post.

I love this forum. I'll still spend time here even if/when I get over SA.

I don't know. I was contemplating on leaving a couple weeks ago, because I didn't feel motivated to post anything. I guess I got the bug back though, so I'm good to go again.

I'll most likely be here on and off until they shut it down or I'm dead, whichever comes first.

Until it gets shutdown or I get bored. Takes a lot for me to get bored. The longest I've ever belonged to a board is 9 years and counting.

I will be here as long as it exists since I don't think your accounts get closed unless you get banned...which still doesn't take your profile off. Anyway, as far as how long I come on, depends...even if I get over my SA I can still be helpful here since I understand them more than most would and I have friends here. As long as I wanna I guess

I don't know. Either until SA is no longer a factor in my life, or until i'm just fed up or bored with this site, or if I end up banned.

Brandon I hope you live a long happy life.

I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more.

Probably until my girlfriend convinces me to leave. She doesn't like this website too much anymore. I wont say why, but it's not too hard to guess.

I agree with her opinion, but i like the place. I've been here a long time.

You're Winner!

I never planned to even be here let alone stay here. Five plus years later, I am still here.

I dont believe SA can be "cured" but rather controlled.
