    My name is JeffinAZ and I am a Teslaholic. Thank goodness for this forum! It will help me stay sane and overcome the "shakes" as I endure the long wait to my Tesla fix...

    Teslaholic! That is a good term! The thing is, I can quit anytime I want to.

    Send it to webster's to be added to the dictionary! I'm a Teslaholic or a Teslamaniac! There are times that people around me just want me to talk about anything else. The first thing that I do when I get home is look for new Tweets and news articles on Tesla..and look in the forums of course

    Nice to know I am not alone. My wife is getting sick of Tesla talk. It's going to be a long wait for her too!

    Welcome to the "club" in more ways than one ;)

    I've been a "Teslaholic" for 10 years, so waiting is part of the process. Fortunately Model 3 is finally real for most of us. The best part of Tesla is that they really do make the best car and the wait will be worth it.

    I like the new dictionary words idea – I believe there are already a few more (not to mention “frunk”):

    Teslaholic – Tesla addict
    Teslarati – person who is into all things Tesla (see teslarati.com)
    Teslamaniac – raver about Tesla
    Tesla tragic – any person waiting for delivery of their Tesla
    Teslapheliac – Tesla enthusiast
    Teslaosterone – hormone released when contemplating all things Tesla (see teslaosterone.com )
    Teslanista – Tesla owner who wants to force everyone else to also drive a Tesla
    Teslanomics – study of economics related to Tesla cars
    Teslanology – study of technology uniquely relating to Tesla vehicles
    Teslasophy – knowledge of/wisdom in relation to Tesla cars
    Teslastician – mathematical specialist in Tesla related statistics
    Teslastronomy – describes discussions about how the future is changed for the better through Tesla car technology – a kind of “star gazing through the prism of Tesla technology”
    Frunkgate - backing a Tesla with a cooler loaded frunk into the parking space at football (or other sporting event) games - i.e. instead of tailgating, you "frunkgate." – Note: the term “frunkgate” is copyright by JOFTAA, 2016
    Tesla – generic term for “Electric Car” – just like “Xerox & photocopy”, “Hoover & vacuum cleaner”

    and last but not least:

    Teslagasm – describes the physical and emotional release experienced when FINALLY taking delivery of your new Tesla

    PS: The following have been added after posting of the original post above.

    Teslaving - working long hours or taking on an additional job in order to be able to afford a Tesla
    Teslangry - [pronounced: "Tes - lang - ry"] - emotion felt by Teslapheliacs if a desired feature has not yet been implemented into Tesla car
    Teslaliving - someone who lives the Tesla [and EV] lifestyle
    Teslaoid - someone who is so pro Tesla they lose all sense of perspective and can't see anything wrong with all things Tesla
    Teslangelist - ["Tes - lan - ge - list"] someone aiming to see Telsa technology become the standard for EVs. Not to be confused with EVangelist who preaches to convert the masses to EV technology more broadly.
    Tesla-ffair - circumstance where one is quietly watching Tesla and all things Musk... - not necessarily with ones partners' full knowledge.

    Personally I vote for the abolishment of "gate" as a suffix to any scandal. I genuinely hate the use of that connotation :)

    Of course - but I did not want to get into another copyright dispute ;).

    Give me your definition, and I will add as a Postsript to my list above.

    A slightly darker word to add to the list might be "Teslaving"

    Tesloid - someone who is so pro Tesla they lose all sense of perspective and can't see anything wrong in all things Tesla.

    However, as much as I love all things Tesla, I'm more of a rEVoultionary and encourage all things EV. (Even those that have taken baby steps to go Plug-in hybrid)

    Welcome to the club, I've been a #Teslamaniac since January 2016.
    I'm sure that my coworkers would rather I just shut up about it by now.

    Yes, i didn't know what a Tesla was until the Powerball was 1.5 Billion, and I was dreaming about what I would do with all that money, and discovered Tesla in car reviews.

    No lotto luck, but I'm still hooked, especially now with one that I can afford.

    Welcome to the asylum...

    My Powerball/Lotto pick is a Zelectric Bug.

    Here I am from 2013 with Zelectric #1...

    EVs are awesome, but to be one step to be "even more environmentally friendly", recycle ICE cars to EVs.

    I told my wife to be about the Tesla-holic thread and she says I am so far in I'm having a Tesla-ffair before we are even married.
    Have been quietly watching Tesla and all things Musk for many moons but didn't believe one would be within my range for a good few years to come.
    Today's distraction... just in case I've missed any early history...


    With recognition that history is written by... ;-)
