Soft Addictions

I was watching TV the other day and saw something about "Soft Addictions." Soft addictions are addictions that aren't as harmful as drugs, alcohol, and those kinds of addictions. Some of these involve shopping, eating, and the one that most of us suffer from, internet addiction. DUN DUN DUN.

As I was watching the show, I realize that I do show some symptoms.

Zoning out

I'm in the zone bitches

Do you forget everything you had in your mind? 
Do you stop noticing the people around you? 
Does everything suddenly seem silent? 
Yes. Pssshh. They don't matter anyway. (DENIAL)

It affects your daily activities


Do you get out of your way just to do it?
Do you devote your time and energy to it?  
Yes. It really is fun? C'mon!!

Hiding the behavior

Uhhh.. yeah.

Do you lie about your behavior?
Do you feel ashamed of it?
Yes and uhhh not really. I'm not ashamed. It's just... people won't understand!!
I'm no freak!

Conclusion, I probably have a soft addiction to the internet.
Yeah, I want to change my behavior. It's toxic.

So, I shall try. Never again!!

But wait..

What's this?

A new post?

Oooooh!! Pretty!

  1. I'm 100% there. I've been working on getting out of it by taking up hobbies. Gardening is a great one for me. It gets me out of the house, and keeps me occupied, plus it's rewarding.
