    That seems to be going around.... The bad news? It's incurable. The good news? Life is better living with scubitis than without......

    Fortunately, nitrogen is relatively inexpensive. When you reach a point where you can't live without helium, then you know you're in trouble ... :shocked2:

    Nitrox is a gateway drug ...

    But officer! I swear it is an emergency! I have to get into the water immediately or I'll go into withdrawal!!!! *points to smooth skin non-water affected skin* "See my skin is even showing symptoms of being too long out of the water!!!!"

    Scuba is the gateway drug......to the sea. Then it's a boat, surfing, free diving, spearfishing....anything to get wet. ....

    Just remember the withdrawal symptoms can be terrible. If you find yourself in the bathtub with a reg in your mouth, call your buddy and immediately submerge yourself in the nearest body of(non-polluted) water.

    You should all be ashamed of yourselves! This is no laughing matter, I understand that comedy might be a coping mechanism, but this is a serious matter. She has now resigned herself to a lifetime of disappointment. A bank account that can never keep up, a planet covered with move dive sites than one could ever hope to dive, and worst of all, knowing that there must always be a surface interval.

    Laugh if you want, but I'm going to shed a tear for her while a scratch off another day until my next trip on the calender.

    Yea, it doesn't take much before planning (not to mention enjoying) the diving trips becomes a delicious obsession. <<"Oh, did I feed the kids tonight??!!" :crazyeye:>> Okay, it is not that bad. Yet.
