The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I was thinking how tough it would be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be.
I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do not guarantee that I will do anything to cure myself.

It's so sad, Steve. But, as addictions go, once addicted, we are afraid of the results that may occur if we attempt to go straight. I think there is some therapeutic advantage to a person caught up in this.
It is said "A knife purchase a day will keep the doldrums away." But, I can't attest to that, yet.
As one of the disciples of the Lord of Blades, I thank you for your dedication.
I have a bit of a different story. I have never tried to stop but somewhere between coming off a mountain with a message and buying a photo capable tablet I heard a voice....If you build it they will come, Ye shall all collect knives!!!!
Great story Craig. I like the extra touch of playing on the "Beverly Hillbillies" theme song. Now I can't get it out of my head. ♫ Let me tell you a story about a man named Craig......♫

♫ Let me tell you a story about a man named Craig......♫
It was a bright sunny day, and I could spot a knife being carried for miles. It had been a while since I had acquired a new knife and I was desperate. I could tell by the way he walked he was carrying a knife. Right pocket. He walked with just a slight short step with his right leg. I quickly tore holes in my clothes and rubbed dirt all over my face and arms. I threw myself at his feet and begged...."PLEEEASE dear sir, can you spare a knife for a broken down old man?" "I haven't had a knife in weeks!" Cass came over and said "Craig, you're pathetic, get up were going home".
I went cold turkey. They say I was found at the door of a gun shop in the middle of the night, mumbling to myself. My belt and shoes had been taken by someone. No one had reported that I was missing. No ID was found on me. So, the law held me for 72 hours and turned me back out on the street. I stumbled around for I-don't-know-how-long. A punk came up on me wielding a knife, demanding that I give him my jacket. As I was taking it off, I discovered my billfold. The sight of the knife had triggered my memory of who I was. I talked him into going to an ATM to get the cash to buy his knife. Being myself again, I held the knife on HIM, got my stuff back, had a good talk with him about the direction he had taken in life, bought him a better knife, and sent him on his way. Remembering that I had a wife, I called her to come get me. She asked "who ARE you? " After promising to seek help for my knife addiction, she reluctantly came for me. I'm doing better now. She lets me play with my knives sometimes. What's your story?
Hey I thought thats where the knife magazines and catalogs belonged???
LOL on the book!!!!

Jan, I think there's a book in the making. "How I Became An Enabler Through Spiritual Awakening" The story of a woman who heard a voice, climbed a mountain, and returned, bearing a laptop with a message from above, "Ye shall all collect knives."
With comments from her flock of followers.
I can hear it now. "Are you playing with those knives again? Nooooo!! "
You know you're hooked when you .......
Use bathroom time to look at knives.
