Any suggestions for fishing addiction . . .er . . . fishing withdrawal?

Over the past several months I have been bombarded by work and home obligations that have kept me from spending the time on the water that has been much needed. I think that I may just go nuts if I don’t pick up a fishing rod soon.

To me fishing is not only a way of life, but a way to escape many of the problems that I encounter from day to day.  It is a release and a place that allows me to forget about the hustle and bustle of the everyday world.  Others feel the same way and I am just trying to understand how to suppress the frustrations when things just don’t go right and you can’t spend the time on the water that you want.

There is no miracle cure or answer that can get me through these times. There are other events that fill the void of the actual act of getting on the water and fishing, however often times these don’t suppress the urge, but make it even stronger.

It is almost starting to sound like I should be attending some type of counseling as I clearly have an addiction and a fix is needed to suppress the urges.  Not that there is anything wrong with it, but it certainly does tend to take up about 90 percent of my thoughts these days.

I can’t be alone in this plight, so how do others cope?
