Like I know we might feel more bored without the internet when we are indoors. But I am actually wondering if this discomfort we experience when we lose internet access might actually go beyond just boredom. Because when it comes to addiction and how dopamine works in addiction. All dopamine does is rise when it thinks something is potentially going to be rewarding. It remembers when we do something that the brain see's as rewarding, and it motivates us to go after these things that it see's as rewarding and good for our survival. So when we all of a sudden stop getting these high dopamine producing things, all of a sudden our brain thinks whats going on, and it see's this as bad for our survival. Likely raising stress hormones ext. My laptop broke for hours earlier on tonight, and I thought I wasn't going to be able to fix it. It might sound stupid but I felt awful from this earlier on. I didn't know what to do with my self and felt quite stressed at the fact I was going to need to try get my laptop fix, potentially not being able to get it fixed, and then potentially having to buy a new laptop I just felt completely lost without my laptop earlier on. I feel much more bored and I actually felt quite stressed. But thankfully I eventually managed to fix it, and it's quite sad, but see something I noticed is how much better I feel now, how much less bored I feel, how much less stressed I feel. I actually feel comfortable again. Where as earlier on I didn't feel comfortable at all without my laptop and the internet. I feel fine when I am outside doing something and I have no internet access, or when I am busy doing something else and I have no internet access. But yeah being indoors for long periods of time without internet access just seems to be an absolute killer. It honestly feels like something seriously isn't right when this happens.
