Program for knitting/yarn addiction
Any suggestions? Won't it take MORE than 12 steps?

Do you really want to quit?

The only programs I know of for yarn are to limit, not eliminate, sorry!

Here's a program for yarn addiction: Go into your LYS and fondle all the alpaca and merino they have. If you don't have a good LYS, visit any other store that sells yarn and spend at least ten to fifteen minutes cuddling the softest, cushiest baby yarn you can find.
Oh, wait. You want to stop being addicted? Sorry, can't help you there.

Quit knitting? I'm sorry, I just don't understand what that means? Is that in Greek?

There is actually a cure for yarn addiction. It requires emptying your house of all yarn and knitting related material. I'll pm you with my address if you're interested in The Cure.
