This was a thing that I loved to read years ago back at Helen's Bibble Directory, basically as follows:

Helen wrote:
Scared you've become a Norn addict? Scared the little furry critters have sucked you in too? Want to know if there's no hope for you? :) We'll here is a list of common Norn addiction symptoms.


Dreamnorn also made a thread on it back in 2007:

Dreamnorn wrote:
Are you afraid that you've become addicted to Creatures games? Afraid that you've been sucked into the world of Norns as though you've been sucked into a black hole? Now you can warn people about the Norn addiction symptoms! If you want to post a symptom of Norn addiction for any of the Creatures games, then go ahead. Here's the first one:


It's a bit tricky to explain, but most of the 'symptoms' often included mixing up real life and Creatures, such as installing cable cars in your backyard, attempting to genetically engineer yourself, freaking out in denial when certain concepts in Creatures are declared to not be the same in real life and just simply being very attached to the game, among other things. I believe they were originally submitted via e-mail but I am unsure, however one thing I am certain is that it would probably make for a very nice forum game!

I'll start: You experience an identity crisis when you look at your hands too closely...are you a hand or are you a norn?

Your diet consists of cheese, honey drunk out of the jar, dirty raw potatoes and moonshine, with the occasional tomato for variety.

When someone takes something from you without permission, you call them an ettin.

You continously press the elevator call button even though it has already arrived.

You are convinced that there are violent grendels hiding in your treehouse.

You ride up and down in the elevator for hours, forgetting where you originally intended to go.

You are confused at why Creatures has no VR release yet.

You translate all your words to the equivalent in Norn babble (yow, bee, doh etc.) before saying them out loud.

This is actually how the world works. It runs on bioenergy.

Your friends always have to correct you when you refer to the convenience store as the COB store.

You are disappointed when language classes don't involve sitting in front of a computer and repeating words it says.

People give you weird looks when you refer to the local bus or your car as "Mover".

When people give you strange looks when you say something, and then you realize you were speaking in Bibble. (so embarrassing! e_e)

When you try to play a saxophone or electric guitar and it just sounds like out-of-tune noise.

(I always found it funny how Norns in Creatures 2 are incapable of sleeping or eating properly yet can play the saxophone beautifully)

You get frustrated when your education doesn't consist of individual words being repeated to you.

Every drawing or piece of art you make always depicts the great egg in the sky.

You just never understand that elevators can't be used in fire emergencies.

You find yourself saying: "Maybe push Norn" whenever you want to show affection to your boy- or girlfriend.

You have a modern day computer (circa 2017) with terabytes of disk space with only your OS, Creatures 3 and Docking Station installed, yet now you don't have enough room for all your worlds and exported creatures!

You think every book with a gold binding must've been written by the Shee.
