Not necessarily, during spring when we were in lockdown, I was doing a lot of gardening almost every day, walked my dog often, and I was also reading quite a bit.Not gonna lie, quarantine would have been (would be) extremely boring without modern tech
This was interesting to watch. I agree in that, for example, watching too much TV or scrolling endlessly on reddit can be entertaining but also feel like you're wasting your life away. In contrast, boredom can make you do more fulfilling tasks like studying or volunteering.
10 days is very impressive. I remember you mentioned your record was 4 days?10 days into quitting Insta and porn. The first few days were a bit tough, but after that I already felt the effects. Feel so much better, firstly about the fact that I quit, and then about the fact that it's having the desired effect.
My record for quitting Insta was 2-3 months (last year at this exact time) I think. I just got too bored and logged in again, even though I knew I really shouldn't. With porn, I'm not sure, but I think it was more than 2 weeks. Mind you, I still masturbate, just less than I did with porn.10 days is very impressive. I remember you mentioned your record was 4 days?
I'll probably break my record of like 3 days just because of how damn cold it is right now. My hometown never really goes below 0 deg C, but here we are.
To rely less on porn/Insta as the primary source of my dopamine fix (for different reasons, of course). Ever since quitting, I feel the need to socialize more, and to "pick-up" as well (as opposed to an easy, virtual solution, which only made me lazy and passive).What was the desired effect?
