I have a rather strange question. How do you know when to stop dripping? I'm a new investor, and rapidly becoming addicted to DRIPS. The problem is that I'm afraid with the amount I'll be paying each month, I won't be able to pay my bills. I recently inherited some money, so I'm okay for now, but it won't last forever (and I'm in the process of investing most of it, anyway). I already have three started (PG, HD, NOR), and six on the way (ABT, CIN, JNJ, KO, PEP, PFE). I feel like I need to stop and think about what I'm doing, but I get so excited about it that before I know it, I've signed up for another $10 special at Moneypaper.

Any suggestions for restraint?
