    Re: he became an addict

    The phrase "snorting the night away" kind of sounds like fun. (I'm not going to try it.)

    Yes. Discretion is advised. Don't try this at home.

    Learning English is my heroin. So I don't need to snort the nights away.

    Re: he became an addict

    It all happens so easily. You start off thinking "Well, it's just one little question about the present continuous. What harm can it do?" Next thing you know it's 4 a.m. and you're desperately trying to explain the upper-ontological modality of quasi-auxiliary verbs in depth-charge sentences. Slippery slope.

    I blame Tdol.
