Default Re: INTERNET addiction

Internet addiction has been a serious problem for me, and it just gets worse and worse. One day a week ago I lost my phone, which is my only access to the Internet. I kept getting so bored, I looked for things to do around the house. By the end of the day, my apartment was the neatest and cleanest it's been in months.

I had thought that chronic depression was keeping me from doing chores around the place. In reality, I was just constantly preferring to be reading or viewing online than doing anything else. My favorite thing is being in front of the TV with my phone in my hand. For hours on end, I'm totally absorbed watching the two screens.

Right now, I need to leave the house. But I first have to tear myself away from the two screens. I've told myself to ease the transition by finding a podcast I can listen to while I'm out of the house.
