addictive stashing

Hello, my name is Emily and I am a yarnaholic. Please do not get me wrong, I am not poking fun at AA or NA members. I am just trying to come to terms with the fact that I have a problem - I feel like I am buying yarn somewhat compulsively. Why? It is soothing I guess; the past two years have been enormously stressful and I seem to have responded to that stress by buying yarn. It is true that it isn't booze or drugs or boxes of twinkees/pints of Ben & Jerrys, but I can't help wonder why I am stress-buying yarn. Just for the sake of being honest, I have (according to ravelry's handy stash tool) a little over 112 miles of yarn to knit. Writing that made my chest tighten up a little. (btw - I live in an apartment in NYC, so not a huge amount of storage space) I think i need to find a new outlet for my stress...
