Since I´m carbed up with ripe fruits, I can think clearer and see, how I function throughout the day, what makes me lethargic and what makes me feel alive.
So I see that I have still some "addictions" that I could ignore before, but now not anymore:
Watching for hours and days movies on the internet, I love the stories, the actors, the world of phantasy and it´s so hard for me to say "no" to it. It keeps me of being more alive, more creative in certain days. Mostly I have this after a stressful time and I´m falling into a hole,
a hole of movies ;)
And then I feel bad because it´s a comfort zone, which makes me want to stay there forever.
But I know the real life has much more to offer than other peoples live´s who are even invented.
I think I have to do "all or nothing" and stop watching movies for a fiew month, going out and meet real people.
The other drug is cooked food and I know that it´s very bad for my digestion and do everything I can to avoid it.
What are your worst addictions and what are you doing substitute them?
Running and fruit has replaced my addiction for alcohol =)
I'd like to hear how, did the fruit get you past the cravings initially?
Smoking - just normal ciggies but equally bad as illegal drugs. Currently curbing my very English habit of 10+ cups of tea with milk a day, I've swapped them for fruit/herb teas or redbush with no milk and lots more water
music and dancing are my addictions.....and kitty cuddles :D lol. positive addictions are good :) :)
yes!!! very true MUSIC
Yeah, these are the best addictions ever :) I´m hooked on it too.
I made myself a 'rule' that if I watch TV then I skip (jump rope) in the adverts, that way it becomes less or a sedentary activity. The result is I have become more interested in being able to skip like a boxer than in watching TV. Now I skip whilst I watch, otherwise it feels boring if I don't!
I started by skipping just for the 3 minutes adverts and I felt knackard. Now I happily skip for 30 minutes often an hour a day. The amount I watch TV has reduced, as it is only an aid to my skipping.
I guess what I need was an indoor activity that I could get into.
My addiction is love! All I do is love everyone! That never happened before :D
I see addictions as negativate things so: Procastination, not exercising enought, day dreaming...
