What is a Caboholic and how to deal with Caboholism?
CABOHOLISM CAN STRIKE ANYONE!
All Caboholics, whether they are long time addicts or have just had their first fix are welcome here.
QUESTION: How do I know if I am a Caboholic? What are the symptoms?
If you have already taken your first trip to Cabo, you may recognize some of the early stage symptoms:
You may not have been aware, but during your vacation in Cabo you begin to think about what kind of business you could start in Cabo. The ideas seem to come so easily and they are great ideas! Surely, you can do something.
Most people become aware there is a problem soon after their first trip to Cabo. Upon returning home, they may find it difficult to focus on work, even when they try not to think about Cabo, thoughts and images continue to fill their mind.
Beware of the physical addiction as well, you may find that a day or two after you get back from your vacation in Cabo, you become physically ill, really! Most of the time it starts with the sniffles and can quickly progress to a severe cold.
Even though you are feeling sick, you still have the desire to go online and post the photos you took while in Cabo. Of course, you are sidetracked by any other articles or posts from others about Cabo. Though you are sick and still show up for work, you are absolutely useless in productivity. All of your energy seems to be directed at anything regarding Cabo.
Within a week after you return from your vacation in Cabo, you are already checking out the airfare and hotels / timeshares available for your next trip.
You now have more friends on Facebook that you met while you were in Cabo. You feel like "old buddies" and are quick to "like" or "comment" on their posts.
There are other symptoms, but too numerous to mention. Please feel free to share any symptoms that you may have experienced.
You must remember - as with all other addictions, the symptoms will fade, but the addiction remains.
Each time you vacation in Cabo the addiction grows. The desire for your next "fix" is much stronger than it was after your first trip. You may find yourself flying down for a "quick last minute trip" more often than you ever thought you would.
QUESTION: Is there a cure?
No, there is no cure.
