I think this site is addictive. I’m not complaining about it. I am just saying. People wouldn’t keep using this site if there wasn’t something addictive about it, or if it didn’t activate the reward system of the brain. I think discourse sort of can hook you. I have seen other people say this site is addictive. It isn’t just me. @zeno @anon35166066.
It helps pass the time. All I do when I’m not on here is watch TV. I’m using a little bit more of my brain on here.
I think it’s addictive but a good kind of addictive.
Basically it’s not like it gets in the way of my routine. And also when I have nothing to do at least I can browse on here, if it wasn’t for this site I dunno wat I’d do during those times.
It kind of is. Especially getting to know new, cool, interesting people. I wouldn’t say it’s like heroin, crack or meth though.
I find it a bit addicting too. Being able to talk to others with the same diagnosis is what I find to be the main draw.
I’d say it is addictive, yes. But in a good way. Kind of like how exercise and the euphoria it creates can be addictive.
This site and Facebook are things I’m addicted to. In the morning I have my coffee and cigarettes while on both sites. I usually don’t reply on this site but today I felt differently. It’s nice to relate with people who have the same illness. It’s funny my first boyfriend and my first girlfriend both had schizophrenia.
I have tried to stop using this site, but I can’t stop. By the way, your name seems familiar, are you Australian?
If I could figure out a way to stop using this forum I would. I haven’t thought of how I can stop using it. I hope I will be able to find a way to stop using it in the future. I would be happy if this site was shut down, but I don’t see that happening.
Yes this site is highly addictive.
My therapist and father think that this is becoming an issue for me.
I am an addict.
Yeah kinda it’s the only place were u gotta be schiz to get in haha!! Love yall
I don’t think it’s a bad thing @Plato. I’m here to improve my cognition. This is all I’ve basically done for the past 6 months and my cognition has gotten so much better.
Good luck. You’ve come along way. This site helped me get on the right track. You can get the mods to suspend you for a certain time limit. If you still want out they might be able to ban your IP address.
We’ll see. 151515
I find this forum helpful and interesting. I’m not sure about addictive. What do I know anyway.
I really like this site because i dont have friends in real life only neighbours to whom i say Hi, thats all. Here i can talk with a lot of cool people
I guess people are just addictive
i havent been on this website for a year or two, so it’s definitely not addictive for me. it’s just one of 1000s websites that i have access to. relying on one community for social or communication needs isnt wise for me. i try to have a few back-up communities and such, to equally divide my attention; just in case i get banned for no reason.
Do u like reddit szc?
