You sell everything in your house that doesn't fit in a truck but the only things that bring in any cash are brewing equipment. (true story)

When walking down the aisle of any given store and you only thoughts are, "how can this help my brewing", "how can that help my brewing", "what can I do with this in my brewing", "oooo, Bacon"

You add the yeast to your home made pizza dough and feel like it's an inferior use for yeast.

...the frosty mugs in your freezer aren't for drinking out of but for chilling down wort samples to determine preboil gravity because you don't own a refractometer.

...you make raw flax seeds crackers in the dehydrator so that it makes the back room warmer to help the Ringwood Ale yeast clean up diacetyl.

...you've mopped the ceiling.
...the only time you clean up the dishes is when you need to use the kitchen sink for beer related activity.
...the "door beers" are only for special occasions and guests.
... your kids drink their juice from pint shaker glasses because that is all you have room for in the cabinets, (and they have their favorite logo/brewery).

Brewing is my Hobby, Beer is my Reward!

Mopped the ceiling - check (twice that I remember)

Clean the dishes so I can clean the brewery - check

door beers - check

Shaker glasses - my daughter likes the "Red Seal" glass.

...your wife apologizes every time she buys soda and juice boxes for the kids and their friends because it takes up room in the beer fridge.

... your sister asks "why do you dress the fermenters?".  Then you have to explain why you stole the kid's painting shirts so you can keep light out of your beer.  Any answer to this question is met with shock and a look of disgust.

... you no longer invite you sister to your house.

... Half of the conversation with the Culligan water softener sales guy is about how the system will affect your brewing water and you know more about water chemistry than he does.

and number one for me, at least, you tell guests you're sorry that you only have 3 on tap this week because life got in the way of your brewing schedule.

...you have about 30 pillow cases with a hole cut for an airlock to cover carboys for aging mead. All pillow cases with no hole cut for an airlock are on your pillows.
