I'm trying to fight Reddit addiction. The vast, overwhelming amounts of information feeding me is just extraordinarily outstanding. I love being fed with information here and there, but I realized it's becoming a big problem for me, along with my focus/concentration. My daily routine is now consisting of reading Reddit for 8 hours straight, and doing nothing productive now that summer vacation is out. It's frightening to think about it, but I was so high and happy, I don't even know if I can deal with it...
I live in a specific state of mind. I live in an overprotective family when I was younger. Mindboggling as it is, I skipped the world of 6 years before I started to realize what is changing, and what is happening.
This specific state of mind, gave me fears and immaturity. Constant flashbacks of fantasies (game fantasies, Japanese manga fantasies, RPG storytelling, etc.) provided me condolences and meditations. Unable to decipher what others are saying out loud when in a speech adds to the fact that I may have a low IQ than I thought I would be.
Joining Reddit, I quickly saw interesting tidbits here and there. Single lines of titles piqued my curiously, and suddenly I lost my motivation, my train of thoughts, my plans, my social life, my free time, and myself.
Some redditors fear that productivity may go down when visiting Reddit, and appreciate that productivity will go up when Reddit is down. I want this to happen, for me right now. I hoped that Reddit is "down", "down" as in "//TODO: I must delete my Reddit account and all my imaginary karmas", so that I can be able to escape from the clutches of this "nonsense praise of being accepted and liked by others", and overcome withdrawal. It's so that I'm able to write programs in peace.
I hate social sites for no reason other than that I have to keep tabs with it on all the time. I have to check it, even when I don't have the impulses to control the urge. It's not healthy for me when I'm going overboard. I know Reddit is not a social site, but I have to mention it. Reddit keeps reminding me of Facebook, and I don't know why.
I love Reddit, but I cannot love Reddit anymore if it's starting to take upon me more than I wanted.
