How do you tell the difference between a collection and an obsession?

If its the latter what would you do?

A collection is healthy an obsession is not.

There is always that part of us that knows when something isn't right.

I have a healthy obsession, often think about what I'm going to buy next but only buy something when I have the cash. :)

It's an obsession the day you register an account on a toy forum :)

It's an obsession when you leave the house at 5:30am on a Sunday morning after a Saturday night, to be one of the first at the boot sale in the vain hope of that fabled loft find bargain :lol:

I think it is an obsession with me around potf moc's, I see one and I just have to try to buy it, I mean I have 3 barada's and 2 afa 85 imperial dignitary's not to mention many other double and triples, I think collecting I would only have 1 of each, I think I need to see a shrink :?

Obsession I think. I probably need to go cold turkey for a couple of months... right after I land what I'm looking at now (1 day after my last acquisition).

It's an unhealthy obsession when you are too scared to go to celebration because you don't know what you will bring back with you when you return :shock:

Obsession sounds s bit creepy to me, but I reckon there's a healthy version.

Back in the early 90s going out looking for vintage was always in the back of my mind. Then when I had a roomful it was just something to look at. Then I met a girl and became less concerned about most of the stuff so sold a load off. But it must still have been precious to me as there were items I would never sell, things I have now.

Maybe an obsession would be something you put above all else. It's never been that. So it is collecting for me.
