    Gosh... way back in time. I first watched one when I was a little girl, visiting in the summer with my cousin. She watched As The World Turns and Edge of Night. They were only 15 to 30 minutes long back then. I then watched Dark Shadows and one day home sick from school back in 1963... saw the very first episode of General Hospital and I WAS HOOKED. Since that time I've watched several, all the way to today. I've watched Y&R as well as Bold and the Beautiful since their very first day.

    I was in kinergarten over 45 years ago!My mom used to watch The Doctors and Another World. When I got a little older I remember watching the first airing of All My Children. Over the years, I've watched EVERY soap to air. My favorite will ALWAYS be All My Children. In high school I used to schedule my classes around Y&R. My mom swore I never went to class! LOL

    I was home on spring break from college and I had just watched Love of Life with my mother. After Love of Life came on this brand new soap. I had never seen a soap from the very start. I was interested right away, the characters captured my attention. Brad Elliot and Sally made me want to tune in all week. I was then hooked. In the last 10 years I have been very disappointed, especially this past 6 months, but I keep on watching out of habit and the hope that it will get better.

    I started watching Y&R in Gr. 10 (30 years ago). A friend of mine watched it, told me it was a great show and got me hooked. She would tell me who was who and the back story of whatever was going on.

    Started watching with my mom in the late 50's. I got hooked on Secret Storm and the character "Amy" and Bibi Besch's role (?spelling) Also ATWT s/l with Meg Ryan as Betsy. Oh yes, I watched "The Gentle Giant", too. I didn't get to watch in later years due to work. Thank you for DVR!!!

    I started in 1980 with a high risk pregnancy. I was confined to bed most of the time & my arms got too weak to hold up a heavy book for hours. I was also alone until my inlaws came to babysit me. So for the 3 1/2 hours CBS soaps were on, I watched tv.

    I started watching Y&R when I was 11. Just in time for Cassie's storyline back in 2005. My mom and grandma watched The Price is Right and Y&R together, so I watched Price is Right with them. I was never really interested in Y&R until I stayed in the room long enough to hear what was going on one day. Nick and Sharon scenes captivated me, and I've been rooting for them since.

    I was in elementary school when I first started watching Y&R. It was when Jack slept with someone on his wedding day and he was suppose to marry Paul's sister. Awww memories!
