Addicted and Robsessed

(join us for a letter of confession about Beaspoon’s addiction and we’ll meet in the comment for RA – Robaholics Anonymous. xo-moon)

What were you saying.. something about addicted?

Dear Rob,

Have you ever watched that show “Addicted” on TLC? Probably not, I don’t really take you for a reality television watcher, but judging by the title you can probably guess what it’s about. Addicts dealing with drug or alcohol problems go on the show to work with a drug counselor or go into rehab and try to get their lives back. I watched this show and couldn’t help myself, but the entire time I was thinking about you. Not because YOU need to go into rehab or have an addition problem or anything like that, but because I have an addiction problem. I’m pretty much addicted to you.

I’m not like one of those crazy teenage girls who stalks you at your premieres and film sights, oh no. I think I might even be worse than they are because at least their addiction is out in the open. They’re screaming your name and are wearing Team Edward shirts and have Edward pillowcases that they sleep on and they swoon over you with their friends. It’s a group affair. It’s fun. It’s not what I’m going through at all.

At least this isn't an episode of Hoarders... that's gotta be the bright side, right?

I’m a closet addict, Rob. Not even my husband, the person who I spend nearly all of my spare time with, knows the extent of my addiction. And the worst part is that I don’t even really know how it happened. Somehow, sometime over the past year since I discovered you, I’ve started needing little hits of you to make it through my day. I’ve tried to be strong, Rob, really. Some mornings I wake up and I feel powerful and I say to myself, “No! I will not even turn ON my laptop today. No Rob for me!” and then an hour or two later I am biting my nails, and by lunchtime I convince myself that I should probably at least check my e-mail. I fire up my laptop and just barely peak at the picture of you on my wallpaper–I swear. But then the kids are napping and I am all alone and that’s when the frenzy hits. And I just can’t help myself, I am shamelessly clicking on all my favorite Rob-sites, drooling over your latest pics and reading my fanfic updates. Then I feel ok again, calm and happy, and I put away my computer, and it starts all over again. Watching the clock and waiting for bedtime so I can get my next fix.

More addicted to me than ALCOHOL? NO!! How can that be?

I’ve never been addicted to drugs or alcohol, thankfully, and I am sure that my addiction to you pales in comparison, Rob. But really, maybe they SHOULD make a show for people like me. Or at least a support group- although I wonder if I could find anyone to be my sponsor if I started attending Roboholics Anonymous meetings? Maybe we could just all sit around and look at pictures of you and….wait, not helping. Crap, I think it’s time for another hit, excuse me while I peruse the WFE blog…

Craving You and (still) Crazily Yours,

Big hand to Beaspoon and altogether now…. THAT’S NORMAL!! Also… Bea, you have us. You’re not alone, ever! So do you feel addicted and even worse a closet addict because you don’t share your Robsession with anyone?

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTT, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Lol, it’s probably fitting that I’m one of the first comments then, huh? LOVE when you gals post a letter of mine. This is an oldie (remember my letter about losing some of my Rob mojo? Well…I’m happy to report that all of the recent Rob sightings have reignited my flame!), but I’m definitely still a closet addict. Gotta have my Rob fix!

    The funny thing is that I’ve NEVER had a celebrity crush before Rob, and I’m 30 years old. I mean, I *liked* Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You. I might have even had a teensy crush on Macaulay Culkin back in the day (gasp!! hey, we all have our weird quirks, lol), but Rob is my first true celebrity crush.

    Still crushing, still addicted. Hey, at least I’m in good company, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Moon & UC!

    • drsaka says:

      It’s all normal here, Beaspoon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ruby says:

      I’m right there with you. Can’t be a sponsor, I need one myself! On second thought, I’ll just keep on the way I am. It’s a lot more fun.

    • MariaCecilia says:

      I am not (r)obsessed, not in love, not in denial…oh, right, who am I kidding..? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Takes one to know one..

      But as long as you’re happy and in good company, as you so rightly point out, what’s to worry about? If for once in your life you are going to have a celebrity crush, why not crush on a celebrity that is alive and kicking (unlike Heath Ledger *sigh*), is not only good-looking (unlike Ian Somerhalder) but seems intelligent (unlike Zac Efron), funny (unlike Tom Cruise), clumsy (unlike Alexander Skarsgรฅrd) and plain adorable?

      And unlike booze, this type of addiction gives you a great body (working off your extra energy in the gym)and a healthy sex life (working off your fan fic fueled fantasies)! What’s not to like? Go girl

    • Hi Beaspoon! We mentioned you are our breakdown of this post yesterday


      PS <3

  2. niahid says:

    Dear Rob,
    I was more excited seeing Dean than seeing you donned a ConArt shirt. That’s not normal.
    I think the mullephant’s had sucked all your hotness or I’m getting tired of you. But not to worry, as soon as Bel Ami come out, i’ll be back in my normal state. Head over heels for you.

    • roslynselene says:

      Yeah, me too. He’s a little boring right now. And that’s perfectly okay. He’s not here for my entertainment, “Dance, RobMonkey, dance!” Even though it almost feels like it.

      But I will be excited once he get’s that cap off his head, once Bel Ami and WFE come out, and once he’s done filming BD (possibly regretting biting into a pillow and placenta) I’ll be there! (I’ll always be here for you Rob, sadly or gladly depending on how you look at it.)

    • pukesten says:

      I hear ya.
      It’s pure habit that I check robsessed these days, and only cos I’m on the interwebs checking something else. I don’t like feeling meh towards Rob. I miss my obsessed days I have way to much free time now that I’m not glued to my laptop/I phone cos of Rob. (it’s like any addiction you have to WANT to get better, I’m not there yet!!) I’m hoping that some Robward pics from the set of breaking dawn will help!!
      Dear Rob
      My name is pukesten and I’m a recovering Robaholic.
      Do something to make me relapse!please?
      (there is one simple change u can make to fix it all… justsaying

  3. minuit_passe says:

    I’ve got my (ex) addiction under control I guess, though could sign a petition or two to have more RL Rob quality (read drunk, funny smth) action. And when I felt alone in my addiction I found LTR. And that was the start of another addiction. It’s a chain reaction. Once an addict always an addict.

    On another note in my profession it’s socially acceptable to be a coke addict, but being outed as a Rob addict would probably mean moving to Alaska or smth.

  4. Valerie says:

    Beaspoon….I’m 37 and I’m the same. Never had a celebrity crush. Even as a teen. But my hubs knows of mine and thinks its kinda funny. He says now I know what it’s like to watch you crush on someone. Since he didn’t get to see how I crushed on him. I was in control around him then.
    Even the other day I posted on facebook I was going to lunch with my #2 man (my teen). I was meaning my #1 was the hubs. But my hubs commented saying “I thought I was #2 since Rob is your #1.” I totally had to laugh at that.

  5. dazzledtodeath says:

    My addiction is still going strong, and while not many people in my RL know about it, my husband does. So he’s fully aware that when I sneak away for five minutes, I’m checking to see if Rob’s done anything exciting, or I’ve got a new FF update. It would be too hard to be totally in the closet, even though sometimes he gets annoyed at the amount of time and energy I spend on my Robsession. Whatever-he’s got his records, I’ve got Rob.

  6. robsfuturemate says:

    Great letter Beaspoon!

    I recently wrote my letter about being out of the Rob closet, so it shouldn’t surprise you when I tell you this: My friends say they want to put me on that Addiction show!!!! Time to tone it down I think. The problem being that it will still be an addiction and I just will be less open about it. Not sure if that’s quite what they mean!
    I also agree with MP, I’m now addicted to LTR!!

  7. robsfuturemate says:

    Okay, it’s me again! (see, addicited) I found out yesterday that one of my close friends has an addiction to rival mine! She is addicted to…Taylor Lautner!!!

    Normally, people make fun but not me. I was glad to hear her stories of watching You Tube videos, knowing his every whereabouts and what not. It was just like me but with a younger, less british boy! And yes, I was kinda glad she wasn’t addicited to Rob!!!!

    That makes two friends with crazy, I mean, normal addictions! (I have a normal Jackson lovin friend too!)

  8. melronin says:

    Love your letter Beaspoon! Pretty much the same here!

    Hi, my name is Mel and I am a Robholic…Robaddict…
    But although that is supposed to be the first step when you go into Rehab…so I heard…I deffinitely don’t wanna be cured at all. No rehab for me thank you! I love being absolutely NOT normal in my RL and absolutely normal here in my support group!
    This is our support group right??
    Lemme go check on Rob for a bit and then back here asap!

  9. So normal Beaspoon and precisely how I feel! Well instead of a hub of BF, I have to hide it from my mom. She knows I liked Twilight and am kinda obsessed about that ‘lipstick and eyeshadow wearing pale faced kid who acts like he’s constipated’ but she has no clue just how far my *ahem* ‘fondness’ for Rob goes. When I open Robsessed, I make sure the lid of my laptop is facing the rest of the world so that I don’t get caught. It’s like a 12 yr old boy secretly watching porn. Well, it is porn for me, Rob porn. *cue cheesy laugh*

  10. Oh and as for sharing my RObsession, I am thrilled to say I have found my first real Twi-BFF when I started college this summer. THe first day we met, she asked me: “Are you a Twilight fan?” “Team Edward?” Hell yeah to both! Of course now it’s not just about Edward, it’s about Robvador, RobArt, Robler, RObowski and DuRob! It was like I had found my soul sister.

  11. Ms. J says:

    Hi I’m Jodie and I’m a Robaholic. (everybody in unison – hi Jodie)
    I have been a Robaholic for about 2 years now. I am sad to say that I relapsed last weekend. I kinda had my urges under control with all the beard action lately. I could even deny that I had a problem at all. This has been a very busy 3 months for me, getting divorced, school, kids, etc. so I was able to just look at LTR once a week or so & go on about my business. Then I opened my laptop after a long time & there, waiting for me was GQ Rob on my wallpaper. Looking all Yummy with his sex eyes, tie, hands……..
    Ummmm, yeah, so anyway I went on a fanfic bender & am yet to completely right myself. Anyway, admitting you have a problem is the first step. So Bea, you did the right thing admitting your problem. (big hug)

    • Beaspoon says:

      Lol, went on a fanfic bender!! I totally did that this weekend too! After not reading ANY (like, I mean, I DELETED my ff folder and put all of my updates into a hidden gmail folder and SWORE I was off the stuff). Yeah, I got bored on Saturday night (exciting life we lead, those with toddlers and preschoolers, lol) and read like…a gazillion updates and even started like 4 new WIPs. WTF?

      I swear off of fanfic every other week, but I keep going back, especially when Rob sightings are few and far between. Helps me get my Edward love back;)

    • robsfuturemate says:

      Mrs. J- sorry to hear about all the drama in your RL. While going through a similar thing 2 years ago Rob was my healer! I hope that he can do/be the same for you!!

      • Ms. J says:

        Thanks Mate. I find a little Rob lovin’ gives me somthing to look forward to when RL is not kind. Sorta reminds me of that one fanfic….. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • robsfuturemate says:

          Ooo! You’re the first one to call me Mate, and I have to admit that’s kinda the nickname I was hoping for when I picked my name!

          I’m a newbie to ff. Which one are you reffering to?

  12. The Old One says:

    Thank goodness for national sporting events, the baseball playoffs, football, basketball, so I can feel slightly justified about the hours I spend Robsessing, because hubby spends hours watching, or recording to watch later, or emailing friends about the scores and standings or whatnot. Plus he’s not paying attention to what I am doing when he’s doing the sports thing!

    • Rob's Flaming Dashboard says:

      Yes, @The Old One. It used to bother me that my husband was such a dedicated fan of his sport. He even runs a major fan web site for his team. Now our kids are all old enough to toast their own bagels I seem to have plenty of opportunity to Robsess and I’m grateful!

  13. Janetrigs says:

    I don’t have cable, but I will in 2 weeks. I’ll come back and re-read and this will make more sense to me.

    PS who’s R–…….

  14. lola says:

    I’m a grown woman with some shame, I keep this shit on the downlow. I equate it with a minor porn addiction, it’s not so bad in the scheme of vices. lol

  15. Rob's Flaming Dashboard says:

    Hi, I’m RFD and I’m a Robholic, Robsessed, everything’s Roblated and I’m happy to be a Robaddict. I read Twilight for my job when it was released and passed it without much thought on to my eldest daughter, who got all excited for the movie, which ended in her buying the DVD and me watching it with the commentary. I went straight to You Tube and found the treasure trove of Rob interviews. And that was the end of housework!

    I like Twilight (and also love/hate it) but I unconditionally and irrevocably adore Robert Thomas Pattinson.

    I’m pretty sure I’m not nearly as hidden in the closet as I like to think I am. I also got a smart phone and created a twitter account purely so I could keep up with HHH. But that’s a good thing, right, helping the economy? (Also possibly may have all Rob’s songs downloaded, and Random Acts of Rob’s “Rob on Demand” for ring tones since he won’t release them and let us give him more of our hard earned money.)

    Thank you for Letters to Rob!

    • roslynselene says:

      I agree with you completely! I too have a like/hate relationship with Twilight. It’s weird. Anywho, I also recorded RAoR’s: Rob on Demand as a ringtone too! I have “You are a smelly pirate hooker. Why don’t you go back to your home on Whore Island?”

      • Rob's Flaming Dashboard says:

        I love the way he says that! I’m not brave enough to have it as my ring tone. I chose his wonderful laugh.

  16. Kimberly says:

    I wish I could quit Rob. I’d have so much more time to do more productive things. But I can’t. Hi, I’m a Rob addict. The thing is I don’t really want help. I just want more Rob!

    More Rob, as in sometimes I get severely disappointed in the paps for not working hard enough to catch him but at the same time want to protect him from them. More Rob, as in I just want to pap him all for myself. (uhm, yeah, I repeat: “pap” him all for myself.)

    • MrsRobPattinson says:


      Thanks for the “pap” comment! I’m totally imagining Rob in scrubs coming in to do my yearly “woman’s exam” now…I’m a sick, sick person!

      “Doctor Rob, I haven’t had time to do my monthly boob self-checks…could you be extra thorough in your exam today?”

      That’s normal…right??

    • Beaspoon says:

      “I wish I could quit Rob.” God, seriously, I say this to myself nearly every day. Like, I wish I could quit Rob in the same way I wish I could quit eating junk food, or quit not exercising, or quit Facebook. Yeah…normal, right? Lol.

      • MidnightCougar says:

        Why do you wish you could quit Rob? I have the best of both worlds – my Rob world & my family world, life is great! I have learned to have it all co-exist together, makes my life much sweeter! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. robgirl86 says:

    Addicted and devoted to Rob!
    Fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    • MidnightCougar says:

      I liked what you said in the “Real Life vs Imaginary Life Rob”comments, “As for myself I am a Rob-llllooooovvvveeerrr NOT a fan!” I thought this was a great statement. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • robgirl86 says:

        oh..thank you MC, that’s how I feel, can’t relate at all to his “fandom”, dunno, I don’t care much of his acting or professional shoots or red carpet things, I mean I love some of his films and his music and he’s very talented, BUT mostly I love Rob for the way he’s just himself! ALL the TIME!

  18. Chrisa says:

    Oh hahaha Robaholic Anonymous… Now I know where I need to go!! I love it…ย I need to know where Rob is, what he’s doing or else I feel like something is missing!?? Good to know I am not alone. And although Rob and Twilight are completely two different things for me, I haven’t dared to go near those books again. Last time I read them I fell into the Forks hole and took me months to claw my way outta there. Seriously – konked out. Couldnt focus at work, depressed. Cold turkey. Sent myself to Rob Rehab and self coached myself to get back on track. Seriously this is addictive dong. Should have health warning before consumption.

    I went to see Lizzy Pattinson’s gig a couple of weeks ago and his parents were there too, supporting her. They are really charming people and really down to earth. Rob’s mom is so young in person! Dad looks good too, pretty handsom for his age. Lizzy is super shy but lovely. It was a really small venue and I could have totally chatted to them but I chickened out. I actually had a book for Rob but came back with it – twice! Didn’t bring my balls to both of Lizzy’s gigs on different days dammit. That and didn’t want want to bother them and how bored they must be to have girls approach them for Rob. Both were really cool nights, especially the one when his family was there the whole night. kinda like how fantasy meets reality and you do see it for yourself that they are just like you and me – but a little more magicness, charm and a massive helping of ladyย luck. But seriously, some people are just born to shine.ย 

  19. Rob's Flaming Dashboard says:

    I never wish I could quit. I’m in it forever.

  20. robsfuturemate says:

    The only thing missing from this Robholics Meeting is the snacks!! Hot Pockets and Heinken for everyone!!!!

    Oh, and a real life meet up! Do you think that helps quit our obbsession? Wait, very few of us want to quit so I guess we’re good!

  21. Pattygirl says:

    Dear Rob,

    I am never tire of you, what mullet? Take care!

  22. Tankergirl says:

    My name is Tankergirl, and I am now a functioning Roboholic.
    Now that all of this has become routine, I am managing my time better than at “the beginning.” Things also did get a little out of hand during the britpackroadtrip, but thankfully that is over and the pace is much more manageable. I have my p0rn stash, watch a little Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse every now & then, and spend an hour a day cruising blogs & tweets. Save the occasional photoshoot outtakes deluge, I can maintain.
    I have however, resisted FanFic. I am curious, but I don’t have the time for more obsession. And from the outside looking in, it appears to be a real heroin den.

  23. frostyswiff08 says:

    Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one who is nearly 30, happily married, and totally obsessed. Thank you, Bea, for admitting this openly. It makes the rest of us feel just a little better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m new to the site and have rather enjoyed reading all the letters!

    I’m sure I’ll be back… after all, my name is frostyswiff and I’m a Rob-a-holic.

  24. Alex says:

    And I am addicted to RTP but surely not Robsessed.

    I google him every day.

    I love his interviews sooooooooo much seen all of them on youtube soooooo many times.

    I have seen all his films and own DVDs and I will see all his future films. So Rob you cant complain about my addiction.

    I dont care if he is dating or not . I just want him to be happy.

    Simply..I just Love him…..and his black pants and LB cap.

    PS: I am convinced that if we all say how much we love him in his black pants and LB cap He surely will get rid of that pretty quickly.

  25. MidnightCougar says:

    Hello I’m MC, I’m 40 & I’m addicted & devoted to adoring Robert Pattinson (have been for quite a while now)! I’m not really in the closet anymore, hubby knows of my affections for Rob – thinks it hilarious, mind you -, & I have a beautiful laminated Rob poster, on the wall in my house; as well as an Edward poster, biography books, etc. I’m not ashamed to adore Rob b/c I also have my happy & healthy family; life is good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Ms. J says:

    OOOOOhhhh – I just love this place. Just like AA except without the donuts & coffee. I do think someone mentioned bringing hot pockets & Heiny though:)

  27. LatersBaby says:

    Hi Everyone, my name is Laters and I’m on the first step…admitting my addiction.

    Like many of you, I have never had a celebrity crush like this and I am in my late twenties *cough*–mid thirties *cough*–mid to late thirties *cough*–you get the point.

    I have to wonder if my earlier, milder celebrity crushes might have been different in a different technological time. What if I could watch hundreds of Matt Damon youtube videos…mmmm…Good Will Hunting interviews. Constantly check out his pictures (RL & Imaginary) and find out random things like what he likes to microwave? What if I found a spot like this where I could chat with cool women like you and feel Normal?

    LTR is really a lovely home…I mean Crack House…I mean website.

    Is this why we all use pseudonyms? b/c it is RA?

    • robsfuturemate says:

      I have often wondered that as well. Is it just the fact that we have more access to our crush? I like to think that even had Rob been around in our younger, less techinical days we would still find a way to be apart of everything he does. I mean if that’s not the case then why don’t other celebs get this level of adoration from us now?

      Rob transcends all, that is my answer.

    • robgirl86 says:

      I really like what you say…
      perhaps he’s the ANTI-star? A star that doesn’t fit “into any genre” (just to use his words…lol….see? addiction is a bad bad thing!)
      Dunno..never had any crush on whosoever, never YT/googled anybody….like Minuit said…..listening to him….his sparkles fall on your head..HARD! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Susiecueablelovesrob says:

        So true RG86 – there’s a lot of beatiful men in the world but it wasn’t until I heard Rob in an interview that I got sucked in – bigtime!!! I love his personality – adorkable, humble and sweet (also LOVE his voice and posh english accent – I could sit with my eyes closed and listen to him read me the phonebook and I would be happy)!
        Hi my name is Susie and I’m Robsessed!

  28. nettie says:

    I totally could have written this.
    No one knows of my addiction, esp. not my husband.
    I love that voice, too. That and his sense of humor are what did it for me.
