- 1. A strong desire or sense of compulsion to buy modern cloth nappies;
- 2. Difficulties in controlling buying-of- MCNs and constant stalking of WAHM pages to score yourself the latest in MCN design;
- 3. A physiological withdrawal state when buying of MCNs has ceased or have been reduced.
- 4. Evidence of tolerance, such that increased buying of MCNs are required in order to achieve effects originally produced by lower doses ;
- 5. Progressive neglect of alternative pleasures or interests because of buying of MCNs, looking at your MCNs, taking pictures of your MCNs, uploading pictures of your MCNs, increased amount of time necessary to obtain or look at your MCNs or to recover from its effects, sitting in the dark late at night so you can spend quality time with your MCNs;
- 6. Persisting with buying MCNs despite clear evidence of overtly harmful consequences, such as harm to the bank balance from excessive buying, anxiety and panic attacks related to stockings, depressive mood states consequent to periods of heavy MCN purchasing, or MCN-related impairment of cognitive functioning; efforts should be made to determine that the mumma was actually, or could be expected to be, aware of the nature and extent of the harm.
Dear MCN addiction,
Hello dear friend, I hope you have been well. I am sure you may have noticed that I have not been in much contact lately. This is the reason why I am writing you this letter. I feel that it is time for us to go our separate ways.
I have really enjoyed your company over the last year. You really have provided me with lots of excitement, support, joy and enthusiasm. Oh, how I have really loved the thrill of “winning” a beautiful nappy (and bragging about it), the anticipation of waiting for the postie to arrive, or the giddy feeling of opening a parcel to reveal the fluffy, mystical pretty waiting inside.
You have been a great distraction for me. I really have enjoyed my “me time” together. Sitting at the computer together for different spurts during the day; grazing thru many photos and newsfeed updates. The joy of admiring pretty nappies and the rush of the “f5” button while trying to nab something new to add to the stash.
I can look back fondly over our time together. I must admit, that I try not to think about all the money or time that has been consumed while trying to feed you. Because when I do I feel a slight sick feeling deep inside my stomach.
The reason for my parting dear friend you may wonder. Well, I no longer have the urge to add to DD’s stash. The high of getting a new nappy no longer takes over me. I feel happy and complete knowing I don’t need/ want any more pretties. The excitement of waiting for the postie has passed, the rush of nabbing a nappy has eased and the urge of constantly checking newsfeed updates has subsided.
Please don’t be sad MCN addiction. I will still be around. I won’t be cutting my ties completely. I will still enjoy sharing others excitement that they have with you, admiring stash shots, congratulating successful “wins” at stockings and even helping feed their own friendship with you. I will always think of you kindly as I watch my DD in her cute fluffy butt.
I feel a great weight lifting from my shoulders now that I have told you how I feel. No longer will I need to hide my purchases or rush to the bank statement first. From now on when I sell a nappy it will not be replaced with another one. I am done.
Thank you MCN addiction for being a great companion. I am sure I will see you around.
Take care, much love
