View Full Version : Help...I'm addicted!
04-15-2009, 06:45 PM
I am addicted to the computer. I constantly have to go on the internet and check all e-mails and social networks. Part of me believes that humans should be connecting with nature, outside being part of the earth -- whereas the other part of me is obssessed with any artificial external stimulation such as the computer, tv, or text messaging on the cell phone. I feel like I am having an internal battle. I think this addicition is disgusting and unhealthy but I don't know where else to get this satisfying feeling I get from all of it.
I want to be living, not sitting at a computer staring into a screen! What kind of life is that?
Does anyone else struggle with this? Or heard of this type of addiction? I dont want to live my life like this but each time I say I won't go on the computer I can't resist...sad I know!

Most American Children are inside with computors, games etc. that is one reason they are obese. Just turn it off and go outside, its simple as that.

I think that it is now a recognised problem regarding teenagers and mobile phones and some have had to have treatment.
I think that your problem is probably more a bad habit than an addiction.
When you are outside in nature or away from your normal environment do you still have the need.

Might be bigger than the social aspect
try sunbathing as a substitute oh and incorporate audible praying so you can feel like you are in conversation/ connecting with Sirit/ Source/ Most High/ Goddess/ God or your deity of preference.

Usually when I'm outside doing stuff and occupied I do not feel the need...its more when I am bored around the house or feeling lazy (which can be sometimes often)
im thinking about trying to get seriously into yoga to help me find more of a spiritual connection to something -- im feeling very disconnected with myself lately

Have you tried to just consciously change your thought patterns to more positive ones. It can be done. It is very easy to get in to a rut and you must get yourself out of it.
Change your self image and start to see yourself in a different light.
