  1. there has been some research linking music to depression though at this point they are not clear wether music causes depression or people with depression are more likely to binge on music.
    i feel that both the assertions are true - excessive consumption of music can lead to depression ( through the same mechanism as porn ) and if a person is depressed they are more likely to binge on music ( for the dopamine hits ) and it can become a bad cycle.
    having said that, i think playing a musical instrument is not as bad as listening to an endless playlist of every kind of music available on earth.
    i think playing an instrument can be compared to sex while the music in your ipad or smartphone is much like masturbating to porn.
    but its best to avoid both while rebooting.
     
  2. Oh you are Krewella fan, now i understand why you trying to stop.

    I totally agree with you. Now when I think about it, my music addiction started approximately in the same time when I became depressive. I looked at music as escape from my cruel reality, and it helped me to imagine my ideal life, but it never helped me to do something to achieve it. Since I'm on this challenge, I'm feeling so much better!

    Well I can't consider myself as a real Krewella fan, my music taste isn't specified. I like few of their songs(my favorites are Human and Enjoy the Ride), but it's not like I'm fanboying anybody. I listen to variety of music(classic, pop, techno, trap, rock, rap, even some metal). But I had strong desire to listen to their new song because I was craving some music, and the notification popped up...


    Btw I'm on day 1 again... Yesterday somebody on this community posted la ink to a song that he called "official NoFap song". I thought it's for real and I really couldn't resist to check it out. It turned out that it was "The Champion", and I really liked it. When I realized that I failed the challenge, I decided to continue listening to music through whole day. I noticed how I enjoy it more than before, I missed my songs so much! Anyways, this is my fresh new start, I'm ready to break some records! :)
     
  4. This method can be applied on anything, even on your beloved football. Music gives us positive energy.

    I can't agree with that, especially with comparing music to football. Football is full of emotions, if you are real fan, you will be with your team in both worst and best times. You will cry when your team loose and cheer when they win. Music on the other side can't offer you that kind of connection as the football does. You may be connected with your favorite artist in some way, and you can be their fanboy/fangirl, but it's still not the same thing...
    But since I started this threat I realized that opinions and experiences with music are very individual. I look at music as it isolates me from the rest of the world. Some people find it opposite, music actually connects them with others. Everybody is different. I started this challenge because of myself. I'm sure that I have a problem and I want to solve it. Many people keep saying me that it isn't a problem, but nobody knows me better than myself...

  6. lol. good one.
     
  7. music is definitely NOT like porn. the dopamine spikes are not that high but if someone binges on music all day long, then, in my opinion, they can mess up their reward circuitry in a somewhat similar way.
    and the thing is that the endless music at one's fingertips is a relatively recent invention. so i think that this pleasurable activity is being overly indulged in by the masses.
    i would say that even binging on football matches, tv shows ( or any other pleasurable activity) is not a good idea.
    but still these activities are definitely not as bad as porn ( for the simple reason that sex is the most intensely pleasurable activity there is ).
    so in the end when it comes to music, although i am avoiding it, i would say - to each his own.

    Hello I had started no PMO 3 days ago, and 30 days without Facebook 2 days ago. For me is an interesting challenge because I noticed that with the excuse of music I lose to much time and leave my homeworks.

    Today was my first day but while I was having dinner my grandma was watching a music show "The Kids Voice", in my opinion it's is not my fault . I'll keep trying.

    Good job guys! You are doing it great!

    Last 2 days were awful for me, I relapsed few times, I ate sugars and I listened to music... I need to get my things on their place, or I'm screwed.
