No. I spend time with my children. I go hiking, or climbing, or weightlifting.

Workaholism is neither healthy nor admirable. It leads to this industry's fetishization of long hours for low pay, crunch time, late-nights and the belief one has to sacrifice every minute of free time to perform in this career. This leads to burn-out and poor mental and physical health.

I choose to be a workaholic, it is what works for me and is healthy for me.
What you choose to do is your choice.
