They talk a lot about the dangers of social media/internet addiction… I´ve never payed attention. Since I stopped playing videogames I spend all my freetime watching youtube or reading the internet. I need to move abroads for the next year soon, and I don´t have too much to do on a daily basis.
I don´t really know if this is inherently bad, or just excessively precautionist.
Where do you draw the line between pastime and addiction?
I think its an addiction only if it harming you
I think im addicted to my phone. I cant even let it charge the whole way before i want it again. If you cant go a day without it or even an hour. You are probably addicted. Its not really a unhealthy addiction though. So i dont care.
I think theres such things as healthy addictions as well as unhealthy addictions. A healthy addiction could be working out. An unhealthy addiction is like smoking a cigarette or having to yell at fat people when you see them.
Im spending 12-15 hours a day on the internet. But i would bloody laugh at them if they said i was addicted. What you expect me todo, im a shut-in, twiddle my bloody thumbs all day? lol.
What about read a book. Or sit outside and watch the birds. Or clean. Or cook. Or do dishes. My dad uses internet for 30 mins a day and he is retired
I do read alot on a Kindle, and i have audible books as well. Its a bit of a task for me at times to go out, especially with the long daylight hours. Its just how i deal with things. When winters here and its darker, i will probably go out more.
And im lazy - i employ a cleaner
Oh. I couldnt afford that. My dad cleans. Im literally on my phone all day.
well, Kratom doesn´t seem to have many side effects when the dose is reasonable. But it causes withdrawal.
