What other addictions did you discover?

    Some addictions are easy to identify like sugar caffeine alcohol, drugs, etc.

    Others, less so. For example I never bothered to think I was addicted to PMO, in part because I did it so much...like a fish unaware of water.

    Now I'm starting to realize just how addicted I am to the internet. Porn has been a relatively small part of that larger addiction.

    It's frightening. I will confess that if my internet is taken away I won't know what to do with myself.

    Another bad habits is news watching and leaving comments in the youtube section. What a waste of time for losers- and yet I get a sick thrill out of it. That's definitely part of the addiction.

    IDK what to do about all of this. I feel like if I take all of it away, I might be overwhelmed. Maybe PMO abstinence is enough for now..but man this is one of those moments when I realize I'm F'd up and have been for a long time. LOL!

    Anyone else uncovering addictions that have been in their face all along?

    Does watching yourself on the mirror obsessively and making your hair counts as addiction ?

    the answer is replacement, don't stop those because they're bad,you won't be able to,get something else that's worthwhile and they'll stop by themselves because that other stuff is more important

    Pmo is by far my biggest addiction I'd say and that's really the only thing I use the word addicted for, but I guess you could say I'm addicted to constantly working on something or improving myself(toxic productivity) in the sense that I have a hard time allowing myself to just relax. For a while I was also hooked on video games, but I managed to take a break and come back to them in a much healthier capacity though. I don't think you gotta take away everything at once if you feel its gonna be too much, some people see tackling their biggest issue as the foundation to tackle the others. But i think you'll also find that as you introduce healthier habits into your life, your need for all of these compulsions in general will decrease.
