I wonder if anyone has any advice on quitting this forum. I can't just do it cold turkey.........Does anyone have like a withdrawal program I could follow which would minimise the pain?

If you guys are out, I'm out too. I took about 3 months off this place earlier this year by being busy with work and another family crisis, so this place was easy to be off for those 3 months. Everytime I drink too much and hate work again, I'm back on here again.

Eventually, I think one or more of us will not be here anymore sadly. I have a little bit of separation anxiety due to family homeless issues.

I only quit visiting sites like this when I have another one to go to. I was on my last message board for five years. Jesus. And I still check it a few times a day. WTF. This forum is much more addictive because of the interactive features.

If find the best way to rid yourself of an addiction is take up another in its place. I recommend smoking. I don't indulge in the habit myself, but it looks pretty cool and you always have something to do.

I'm actually diagnosed with COPD that used to be considered asthma/allergies, so I can't go back to smoking.

I'm thinking of only replying to PMs and positing visitor messages on my profile from now on.

Told myself I was going to do that since March 2011, but like Double Indemnity said, the interactive features of this site makes it hard to stick to it.

I think I'm finally going to stick to that for real...

Two options:
1. Find a new addiction - Either another forum, or another activity altogether like video games.
2. Get a life - by this I mean immerse yourself in work or social/family activities, or pretty much anything that involves leaving the house.

Find something else to do. Then you won't have time to be here.

Aren't most people on here cause they are lonely and bored? If you fix those two problems...
Laziness is closer to the mark in my case.

You must be the first person that ever has or your sense of humour is more cracked than mine!
