    It would seem the longer you stay unsocialised the less you are able to relate to other people in everyday life or to a more severe degree be around others at all . People seem to totally lose themselves in the own head become wound up ,uptight , unstable even.

    I lost myself in my own head, became uptight and unstable because of being around others. :( I have avoided all social situations and isolated myself for several years and have become less wound up, less uptight and more stable as a result.

    So the answer to your question is, you cannot make sweeping generalisations because it depends on the individual.

    I think it depends on the person.

    People in that situation could become monks, scientific geniuses, philosophers, or school shooters.
     
  6. Yes I think it depends on what we do with that time alone, but most people need a certain amount of time with others.
    #ALONEWITHAPHONE doesn't seem to be helping humanity sometimes.

    Personally, I would say that its pretty safe to assume that for us addicts, isolation is almost never a good thing. We need accountability and connection with other people. Isolation not only allows us, but encourages us to get inside our own heads and that's the biggest risk we take of letting shame take over and giving up on this fight.

    Long periods of unwanted isolation, yea that can probably happen, makes someone bitter and feel like life is unfair

    but purposeful isolation for a long period of time, probably won’t have the same effect

    I think the why behind them becoming isolated is more telling of violent tendencies than isolation itself. Involuntary isolation can breed the most violent of people, whereas voluntary isolation can breed the most peaceful of people.

    I would argue it often is the other way around.

    I have purposely started to isolate myself more purely because I am bored with small talk, meaningless chatter and gossip. I still like to meet with people but only in a discussion group or similar when a topic I am interested in is the focus. I am trying to put the time and energy I used to put into porn into meditation, prayer, silence and reading. I have dropped any kind of social media and media in general TV etc and I feel much more peaceful, calm, far less stressed and relaxed.

    Maybe but relate in a " socially acceptable" way just because you think differently outside the herd doesn't mean tonnes of people don't still have a herd mentality. Many people operate inside a herd mentality and many people don't

    Ill be honest I dropped social media 11 years ago . Can only imagine the amount of bullshit. I'm always a bit concerned about people who are big into it . Makes me think when you going to grow up . Social media is for teenagers . It was when I was one . Had hundreds of friends .became an adult and drifted away from it . What adult has time for it ..seems a bit pathetic a grown adult man or woman

    What I meant to say is people can lose social skills over time
     
  16. For me personally I get lonely for a good portion of isolation but eventually it passes and then I can enjoy things in silence.
