    LOL. No but in all seriousness, I'm pretty addicted to hitting the TasKiller after exiting an app that I want closed. I always hear about them being pointless on Android phones so I finally uninstalled it and I'm going to go a while without it to see how I like it. Hopefully I survive the withdrawal process without the shakes and stomach cramps. :confused:

    Ha!! I tried the same thing...went back to it unfortunately!! lol!!

    I use it constantly, I tried to not use it and my Droid felt really slow. Maybe it's in my head, but using Taskiller just seems to make it run faster and smoother to me....and on top of that I use Autokill!! lol!!

    Not rooted but would like to be just for the customization options alone. But I'm just scared I'll mess something up.

    Ya totally not needed unless you running unstable app and have a lot of issues with it. Under normal everyday conditions it is not needed.

    LOL. It's hard already. Always get the urge to click something when I exit an app. I'm gonna stay strong though!

    If you need to click something get a cache cleaner one click widget. Works great for speeding io my droid and for my addiction. Task killers really do not help. I had one for 6 months. My droid runs just as good without it.

    I know we needed a 12-step Droid recovery process, but now we need one for task killers too! :)
