So I've decided to quit. That's right. You read it right. I'm quitting.
Here's what I've given up in the past couple of months.
1. Farmville and Cafe World. I told myself to give it 15 days. Cold turkey. If I missed it too much, I could go back.
I haven't played since April 8.
2. Forums. I just decided to get off all the forums I visit. Just last week I decided this. I went into forced forum hibernation on Wednesday, June 23. I told myself 30 days. So far, I don't miss it.
3. I've quit a third thing -- a huge thing. It terrifies me, yet liberates me at the same time. When I can share, believe me, you'll be the first to know.
So what do I do instead? Twitter, Facebook (no games!), blogging and get this -- WRITING.
I'm sitting here at 9:50 PM, wondering what I should do. I open a new tab, and see all these places I usually go. Most of them are off-limits now.
So I do what writers do. I write. Last week I wrote about 10K, and that's about 10K more than I've written in a very long time.
What could you quit and be better off for? I challenge you to do it. Be a quitter. The good kind.
