    ... you start timing the drive home from work
    ... you start associating real road sections with parts of your favourite tracks
    ... you can 'sense' the braking points
    ... you FINALLY press pause to have a break, leave the room, and find yourself on the set of the Jetsons

    you know you're playing gt4 too much when you ask somebody " where does the sunday cup take place"

    -when you go to a tuning shop and your missing and you are asking him, why would it take so long to tune the car....

    lol

    but the best one i read hear was " when you walk around a corner and curse at yourself you missed the apex" just perfect

    When you come home, after driving behind some old women in her Suzuki Alto and IMMEDIATLY go to GTP to complain about the AI:p

    When you are asleep, and your mum goes to the stairs with a vacuumcleaner and you immediatly get a GT4 racing dream where your driving your Audi R8 while breaking the 300MPH barrier.

    When you go to the store and keep buying thousands of rims for your car in the hope of seeing a black LMP car suddenly pop out of nowhere saying: "for sale":drool:

    When your in the car with your wife and kids and suddenly let go of the wheel and keep pressing the 4 on the radio buttons and the warning triangle in the display to switch over to BSpec mode:scared:

    While being in charge over the set up of the nascar cars from the Penske Racing team, and you suddenly command full downforce on the rear, no downforce on the front, all the weight in the back and order the driver to go 1000MPH or he's fired.....:scared:

    Edit:
    ROFL:lol:

    ... when you buy an MP3 player for the sole purpose of listening to your own tunes while playing.

    You play too much GT4 when you can not find anyone in Person that can even come close to your times, and you have to look to world GT databases to find faster times.

    You play too much GT4 when your times are competitive with the world databases :lol:

    We all are guilty of this, I purposely get the crappy shopping carts with no tires because they slide the easiest in the grocery store. :dopey: You should see the looks on peoples faces when I four-wheel drift right by them through the aisles. :crazy:

    You know you are playing too much GT when among a community of 80,000 you are one of 11 or 12 that have 100,000 A spec points.
    The ultimate would be when you know something about GT4 that Famine does not know about. :scared:

    One thing that made me realize that I'm definitely addicted to GT4 was when I was with my 7 year old son, we saw a Ferrari Testarossa and I was pretty excited because it's not the kind of car you can see every day but he wasn't interested at all and said : "it's not a real race car... it's not in GT4".

    When you think you can bounce off the guard-rail and just get back onto the road without losing much speed, and not a single scratch on your car :p

    I found out when I was playing,complaining about Bob on the SartheII enduro, and my g/f asks, "Who is Bob?" And I reply, "Whaddya mean, 'who's Bob?'" And then realizing that I've never actually talked about Bob irl, compared to here on GTP.

    Or in the midst of a shower, realizing how to properly take a turn @ the 'Ring, and getting out of the shower and immediately hopping on the PS2.

    Or referring Corvettes, Mustangs & Rx8's as 'slow' cars irl, then realizing I'm not in my Audi R8.

    All very true.
