deadflowers Hi! I'm a huge Stones fan for as long as I can remember- really! I remember listening to the early Stones songs as a little kid. My brother had them. In the 70's I collected EVERY item from newspapers and magazines and made scrapbooks. As the years went on I didn't collect as much but I always loved the Stones! I have all their stuff and love their shows. I have been into U2 lately and was really into their tour, but when I saw how cool the Stones were compared to how nerdy Bono has become now,(onstage last night) it made me realize how awesome the Stones are, they ARE rock and roll, and Mick is THE rock god!! The Stones are the eternal rock flame, and they're still out there. I cannot say how cool that is and how proud I am of them! I need to appreciate the Stones more, so here I am!!

Hey- can you post pictures here? If so, I will!

sirmoonie Yes...uh, name is sirmoonie I'm a Stonesaholic.


Whaaaaa? I talk now or what...ok...I like started Stonesing when I was around 13 or 14. At first it was just a bit of Hot Rocks here and there. I liked it, but I never got out of control. You know, just something I'd do every now and then to have fun. Just kicks, you know?

Over the next couple of decades, things got worse. I gradually began Stonesing all the time. I bought Stones even if I knew I'd only Stones to it a few times. I even tried that rare Dirty Work-Stones. Sometimes, I wouldn't do anything but Stones for like a year at a time. And then when the really potent form of CD-Stones came out, I was hooked for good. Now I could Stones all kinds of different ways. I could mix one Stones with another Stones. I could repreat Stones, doing the same Stones over and over, until I passed out. Like a junkie, I could program my whole day of Stones hours in advance. Sometime, I'd wake up in the morning and there would be empty CD-Stones cases laying all over the house. I began to lose control. And it only got worse....

About two and half years ago, I met some really bad characters. Their Stonesaholism was so much worse than mine that I started thinking I was actually ok. I started hanging out with them. Those guys had it real bad. Real fucking bad! What? Sorry. Anyway, the over-the-counter Stones wasn't enough for them. They'd go find Stones on the black market to feed their disease. Some of it smuggled in from Asia! They had piles of Stones. More Stones than I had ever seen. So much Stones, that they didn't even care if you used their Stones. "Here ya go sirmoonie, try some of this. Nice little '73 action to get you going. See anything else you wanna try?" They even have this clubhouse where they would hang out and Stones together. It was always getting out of control. Fights, everything. An ugly terrible place. I hear that it got shut down once, but they just moved on to another place. They didn't care. All they wanted was to Stones somewhere, anywhere. Like I said, they had it bad.

But, it all really came to head about a year ago. I'm sorry, this is difficult to talk about.........[gulp]....I'm sorry....what happened was...I followed these guys to Cleveland....What? No, its gets much worse than that. I followed them to Cleveland and we checked into this seedy hotel. We Stonesed all night...oh morning we were all so Stonesed out that you'd think we be done. But no, sick as we were, we got up and did it again. We even added a few more people. At the end, we were slouching around on broken patio furniture, gooned out of our minds, not even talking to each other anymore, listening to Dirty Work at full volume at 3 in the morning. It was so ugly, I just can't......I knew then I had a problem and needed help.

Well, that's my story. Can I get one of those fucking chips now?

Maxlugar Great post Moonie!

I really liked the whole Drugs/ Stones analogy.

If everyone get off their asses and posted like that we'd be logging into this site 500 times a day. Instead of the measly 450 times a day.

Hug me!
