It all starts with curiosity about a show your best friend has been recently obsessed with. You wonder what’s special and decide to check it out. Next thing you know, you have been inside your room with your laptop for 12 hours straight, biting nails over plot twists and coming up with your own theories.

Binge watching is when you get so hooked to a series that you sit there in your room watching all the episodes back-to-back and forget that the world exists.

Here are 25 things that are way too real for binge watchers.

1. It takes over you, slowly.
