I guess this is the answer to my question I asked a month or so ago.

I've been living without thinking much about money and spending quite a lot of it. I find I lack the motivation to be so disciplined as before, now that I enjoy my job and my life so much, and don't see much reason to retire.
I can really relate to this. When I started, ERE was about money and retirement. Now it's not. This was a completely unexpected result. :o :)

Do you still think much about ERE (the life philosophy as described in the book)? How does that figure in your life? I am trying to figure out whether this mind-virus can be removed, and if it can't, I will simply have to accept it as the new operating system.

Thank you very much, guys!
YaW, sorry for not having answered the email. I've been using the cellphone mostly and I hate to type on that thing. Also hate not writing a proper answer. And can't access personal email at the job. So I end up postponing it until I forget it. Maybe now that my focus is back on ERE, I'll be posting more often.
Fish: yes, it definitely is possible to forgo ERE. Thing is, if you stay around here, your brain keeps on absorbing unconsciously the peer pressure and you program yourself everyday towards ERE. Whether that is a good thing or not, is up to you.
