    My first soap was ATWT/GL...my great grandmother got me hooked on them, because she babysitted me when I was little.

    My first memories are the crossback dresses on ATWT and Kim Zimmer driving off the bridge in the red car oh...and the Alan Michael / Blake storyline when they were first married and he was kidnapped.. Those were the days of good GL.

    my first soap was The Young and The Restless. My grandmother watched it for an hour and then after that it was The Bold and The Beautiful. i was like around 13, but I didn't really get into those soaps but my grandmother did introduce me to them. afterward, i got into All My Children when i was 16 and i've been watching it for about 2 years now. i don't want to watch any other soaps b/c i'm probably gonna get hooked

    My mom got me hooked on The Young and the Restless. When I was around 10 or 11 years old, I started watching Y&R almost daily. I watched episodes before I was 10 years old with my mom but I was too young to really I guess get into it. I'm hooked on Y&R. It's my favourite soap ever! It sound's like I don't have a life but I actually do

    Days of our Lives. It helped me pass the day during the summer. The Island storyline was really good. Since then... Not so much...

    The first soap I started watching is Another World.  My mother got me hooked on it.  I really miss the show, the way they ended it was appaling.  Damn them for ending it with Victoria being pregnant with Jake's kid GRRRRR

    My first soap was probably Coronation Street, as child in the UK my folks enjoyed watching it & there was onlt 3 TV channels available back then. My favourite soap was the Australian Sons and Daughters, as it had outlandish plots with an attractive young cast. I also enjoyed the equally outlandish Melrose Place, but have never got into daytime US soaps. But I did enjoy Susan Harris's Soap which was a comedic parody of that genre.

    Guiding Light was my first soap. Carrying on a family tradition.  My great-grandmother listened to it on the radio before it was broadcast on tv. She watched it when I was little and would talk of the characters like people she knew.  She got me hooked.
