You find yourself fingering actual, correct chords as you play air guitar while listening to music in your room.

You scrap the air guitar, pick up your axe, and jam along.

... the only G string you have in mind comes between D and B

....you try making chord progressions out of the roman numerals on clock faces
I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

...you have made up a lame excuse to not hang out with your friends just so you could stay home and play your guitar. It is so sad and kind of dorky, hope I am not alone on this one.

... the only action your concerned with is the height of your strings.

Spotting bands that are miming becomes a precise art (nay - a science) rather than a jokey guessing game.

When your neighbours say "we hear you playing your guitar sometimes".

Only sometimes? Geez - I need to ramp up the volume.

rather than getting lyrics stuck in your head, riffs abound.

....when you start cutting your nails before they really need it.

....when you start picking your strings more often then your nose.
