One month Detox from the internet.

As wonderful as this incredibly supportive environment is, I've decided to quit it temporarily because I seem to be spending far too much time on here, and on the wider internet generally...again...

So I'm going to do a one month Detox from the internet and all stimulants I'm currently using: coffee, tea, chocolate and alcohol to see how it improves my mood and chronic sleep disorder.

I need to get my life sorted out. Back in employment, my house on the market and reading avidly again, but tactile books and newspapers, not articles and online news... I want to revive my passion for politics, books and the arts...

I'll update you at the beginning of May to say Hi!, and to catch up with you all again, hopefully in a better place and in a far more positive state of mind. I'm going to the Coast for a couple of days long distance running next week to formulate a life plan.

Very best wishes and lots of Hugs xxx :cool:

Coast xx

I don't know if you've done any research on Quitting things but I did, theres a lot of info out there

I still failed because I went about it wrong

im even going to lecture my therapist about it - how he seemingly encouraged me to Do It Wrong (now I know what I know about Quits and Cold Turkey and Addiction and Coping)

Hes gonna be fine with that bc he learns off his patients

hope things go as planned x My quits did not work, which is not to say they Failed because they didn't, exactly. I learnt a lot.

Best
