    I was not allowed to watch soaps at my house but my best friend and her mother watched RH and AMC during lunch so I ate lunch at their house a lot. It was during the Phil, Tara, Chuck storyline. I never stopped watching. My dad bought an early VCR and I learned how to use it so I could tape AMC and GH. He was not pleased lol. I still watch YR and GH and I love watching AMC again on YT.

      Started around Adam Chandler's time, before his twin was introduced. I had to record Y&R, ATWT,GL,GH, for my mom AMC would come on last.
      To make it go faster i had to ff through the ads because none of them didnt know how to use the vcr,I had to sit there do & it, so why not watch it

        Whenever a CBS soap was preempted, my family would watch the ABC soaps.

        I started when I heard Lindsay Hartley was joining the show. I was a big fan of hers from Passions. I started watching about a month before she joined so I'd have some idea of what was going on the canvas when she arrived. I grew to really love the show during my short time watching it. I watched the revival as well.

          That’s interesting. She was
          married to Justin Hartley when
          he played Adam on Y&R.

          Then he was with Chrishell who
          played Amanda Dillon on AMC.

        A combination of people: Our neighbor down the street was in college when I was in middle school. I thought she was the coolest person ever and she used to watch AMC. She was a big fan of the Nina/Cliff romance. My grandmother used to watch and whenever I visited her or she came over, I would watch with her. She would fill me in (partially) on the back stories. She would never tell me, for example, that Donna had been a teen prostitute. That was simply too shocking! And she did NOT approve of Tad the Cad. I used to love to tease her by telling her I thought he was sooo handsome! She thought the Jenny and Greg romance was just lovely, however. Too bad it was destined for tragedy.

          My mother and women relatives always watched the soaps, so I grew up in a soap watching family. I don't exactly when I started watching AMC, but I remember a younger Erica Kane, whom I used to despise! I hated how awful she was to Mona her mother, a sweet lady! However, over the years I grew to love Erica. Kendall was my favorite though (Alicia Monshew's Kendall)... I was a Zendall lover!

            My 3 month old daughter went down for a long nap at that time and I had lunch on a TV tray. I heard a new soap was starting starring Ruth Warrick and I thought it would be very professional. I have watched every episode, even online.

              I saw a bazillion promos for the new soap that was going to begin and decided to see what it was all about. I was instantly hooked when I saw Erica Kane! It was the only soap I watched for about 18 years!

              But ekek, your story reminds me of how I eventually got hooked on OLTL. My third/youngest child took her bottle at 2:00 pm. I already had the TV on from having just watched AMC, and so I just left the TV on and stayed put while I fed her. Obviously, it was inevitable that I would get hooked on that one too! And then, after I'd been moderating here for a few years, the GH forum needed an additional moderator, and so, well, you know...........

                My mom watched Guiding Light and As the World Turns on days she wasn't working, and I would join in. She started watching the "new" soap, All My Children, from the beginning. It didn't take me long to become interested in Erica Kane and her shenanigans with Brent Martin (was that his name?). Later I loved her with the "older" Nick character. I only watched hit and miss in the beginning, but in the 80s I started watching pretty much daily. Even after I worked full time, I would go home at lunch to watch the middle part of AMC (15 minutes to get home, 30 minutes watching my show, 15 minutes to get back to work).

                Moore ideas I love your story about watching OLTL because of your baby's bottle habit!

                  I don't know why guys are shy about being fans of soaps. They watch them in bars, my brothers were soap fans. I was a CBS soap kid, but sporadically, I watched AMC. I even got to see Susan in person at a store event, in the 90's. I think she was promoting a book she wrote.

                  WalnutGirl -- ME TOO!! I don't remember why Susan Lucci was in my area, but I do remember that she was absolutely lovely. Very gracious and almost shy.

                I was hooked on The City and Port Charles. AMC was on afterwards so I kept the TV on while surfing the web and got hooked.

                  I can't remember exactly when or how I started watching AMC but I know it's one of my first soaps I started watching as a child probably because they used to do disaster stories like bombings and hurricanes.

                    My grandmother used to watch Ryans Hope, AMC and Another World. I watched all of these and picked up on One Life to Live, General Hospital and the City on my own. I miss these shows so much!

                        My aunt is the one who introduced me, she has followed the soap from day one, it's very dear to me, it brings me back to all those late nights coming back from work and watching together episodes, she'd explain to me who was whom lol...l started to get hook, and she'd send me magazines so l could keep up, l feel sad it has ended bc that was truly her one soap she loved.
