How addicted are you? How much do you usually spent on MTG in a month? Do you think the term Cardboard Crack is legit? 

Worse than heroin.
I probably average $1000 a year, since 1994.
Yes, the term "cardboard crack" is more than legit.  First heard the term in '94. 
STEP 1: Find your cousin STEP 2: Get your cousin in the cannon STEP: 3 Find another cousin
Worse than heroin.



Yeah. If you only spend 1,000 dollars a year on H, then you aren't getting high enough.

since i returned 1 month ago i pumped up to 200 € in my cardpool. the things i do for love!
Recently found out that some of my older cards are worth something so I'm going to try to trade for my drugs rather than just buy them. 
Don't worry, stamp collecting is just as addictive, and the same goes for fishing and watching football... just enjoy it, the only permanent condition is a good awareness of game theory from a practical viewpoint.

I enjoy it, but my whole life doesn't revolve around it. Maybe something less addictive, like Cardboard Minecraft?
Thank you Blitzschnell for the awesome banner!
lol, Iused that term today at the mini-masters event, everyone seemed to have never heard it.
Autocarding
Please Please Please Autocard/// / / / [c]Protean Hydra[/c] => Protean Hydra / / / I can't read the cards you reference without it... / Well, ok, I CAN read the cards, but it involves opening Gatherer, looking your card up by name, hoping it's spelled right, and... I'm just too lazy to do it, alright? Please Autocard.
Less than 100$ a year. I am a casual player so I don't spend money on events. I also ignore standard format rules so my decks are often cheaper to build. I do enjoy FNM tho.
My current budget is $30 a quarter (marriage does these things to your crack habit).
If I didn't have a budget and family to worry about? Triple it.

Cardboard crack? Nah, mine is pixels!! I only play MTGO. Spent about $100 just in the last week on Inn and M13 pixels. Working in Afghanistan it's just easier than carrying cards around, BUT, MTGO is a gateway drug because me and a few buddies are about to order some booster boxes and fat packs for some paper addiction here as well!
yeah cardboard crack goes back to the infancy of the game that i still use to this day.  it is a reason i dont hang at the LCS as any cash i have i spend on it....seriously my weed habit doesnt even get to me like that i can stare at an oz and be like cool but if i look through a binder or a few cards all i want to do is go buy boxes to open.

Yeah weed is extremely cheap compared to magic.

Actually, compared to most things.

You do realize, of course, that lulz isn't actually just laughing. It's Schadenfreude.

Cardboard Crack? Nah, since trading cards are not made out of cardboard. :P

[card stock != cardboard :P]
