How often do you use your camera(s)?

I was fascinated by a comment in another thread where the OP was talking about investing in gear while at the same time saying that he only used his DSLR a couple of times a year

I'd like to understand what motivates people to invest in gear that they don't use.

I like to have a camera with me at all times and from where I sit, I can't see why anybody with an interest in photography wouldn't think the same.

What's the norm? Are most people like me or is a camera something that comes out on holidays. If you do only use your camera occasionally tell me what stops you using it more.
