Martinnfb Posted August 17, 2018 Share Posted August 17, 2018 "My name is Martin H.. and I am a new member of Large Scale Modellers. I say I am a member of LSM because I believe there is an important difference between being a member and being a member of LSM. As a member, I could not stop building, but not finishing my projects. Even when my doctor diagnosed me with certain social distortions, I could not stop building. I admitted my building was often injurious, yet I knew, as right as the sun would rise tomorrow, I would build again. I can't stop building. This is the horror and hopelessness of being a member that doesn't finish his projects. Yet, here I am, as a new member of LSM, many years not finishing a kit ! How is this possible if I be a modeller and everything in my experience tells me I will build again to finish? Well, I found a way out. By working the Twelve Step program as described in the Big Book of Modeller Anonymous and living in the disciplines of Steps 10, 11, and 12 everyday, I am able to remain, almost effortlessly, abstinent from starting new kit and all mind-altering research ! I have had many spiritual experiences due to the Twelve Step program or/ and I now know how to live without placing my kits on the SOD. The obsession to start a new build has been removed. My progressive research-obsessive illness has been arrested. My SOD disease has been put into remission. I have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body, by placing another pile of plastic on the shelf of doom" What ? Damn! I forgot to close the Tamiya extra thin again.... 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
