The 'Twenty Questions' that helped me decide that I was astroholic. Take this 20 question test to help you decide whether or not your have an astroddiction.
Answer YES or NO to the following questions.

  • Do you lose time from work due to your van? yes[/*]
  • Is your van making your home life unhappy? no[/*]
  • Do you work on your van because you are shy with other people? no[/*]
  • Is your van affecting your reputation? yes[/*]
  • Have you ever felt remorse after working on your van? no[/*]
  • Have you ever got into financial difficulties as a result of working on your van? no[/*]
  • Do you turn to lower companions and an inferior environment while working on your van? lol no[/*]
  • Does your van make you careless of your family's welfare? safety maybe lol, but no[/*]
  • Has your ambition decreased since taking ownership of your van? no[/*]
  • Do you crave your van at a definite time? no[/*]
  • Do you want your van first thing in the morning? lol no[/*]
  • Does your van cause you to have difficulty in sleeping? only if I try to sleep in it lol, so no[/*]
  • Has your efficiency decreased since your van came into your life? no[/*]
  • Is your van jeopardizing your job or business? no[/*]

  • Do you work on your van alone? yes[/*]
  • Have you ever had a complete loss of memory as a result of your van? lol not yet[/*]
  • Has your physician ever treated you for mental anguish over your van? possibly[/*]
  • Do you work on your van to build up your self-confidence? yes[/*]
  • Have you ever been to a hospital or institution because of your van? almost, but no[/*]

What is your score? 4-5

If you have answered YES to any one of the questions, there is a definite warning that you may be an astroholic. :think:
If you have answered YES to any two, the chances are that you are an astroholic. :shifty:
If you answered YES to three or more, you are definitely an astroholic. :eek:

(The test questions were not used at Johns Hopkins University Hospital, Baltimore, MD, in deciding whether or not a patient is an astroholic).

Remember if you, or someone you care about, is struggling with astroholism, or even mild cases of astroddiction, you've come to the right place. :romance-grouphug:
This is hilarious...

Leeann told me it's time

If you've ever cheated on your Astro only to sell the car out of guilt lol

If you've ever bought another type of van but kept looking at Astro's

If you've ever sold your Astro to get clean but fell off the wagon years later and bought an Astro

If your cupboard is empty but there are new rims on your Astro

If your living room has more Astro parts than furniture lmao

If there are Astro parts in your bedroom rotfl

If you have your hands deep inside the engine bay and feel a Chub rotflmao

If you reach out to caress your Astro when walking by my precious lol

If you look out the window to check on your Astro before going to bed

If the other side of your bed is empty but you have an Astro

If your friends give you a blank stare when they ask "what are you building now" and you answer "An Astro Van" lol

If you have joined a support group that Enables your Addiction instead of convincing you to Get Clean present
I enjoyed reading this entire thread tremendously, laughed A LOT;

If you have more pics of your Astro than your family.

If you spend more funds on your Astro than your home.

If you severely dislike the automotive aftermarket for lack of Astro accessories.

If you run outside every time you hear a neighbor mowing so you can move your Astro if needed.

If your custom Astro gives you a sense of superiority.

If you're constantly online looking at Astros.

I may very well be an Astroholic, I'm in the right place, "KEEP COMING BACK!" thanks everyone.

Philomena! :poke:

We call her "phil" :rofl:

The wife says she's a he but I've never owned any motor vehicle I would call a "he" or him for that matter.

My lawn tractor I might though,
I do little maintenance to it,
feed it bad gas, (sh t)
leave it out in the rain every so often and when it is inside it's in the dark,
Yep, my tractor is a he.
He gets the mushroom diet and works like a dog so he must be.
Alot like me. :D
