I am amazed how watching the TV sucks the energy and life out of me. If I leave it off, I actually get things done. Of course my husband turns it on as soon as his peepers open. I also need to step away from this computer more often! Good question
Well, you could call it addiction, a modern addiction, and the truth is that we are all addicted to some form of visual technology today. Thankfully the addiction is mostly positive and the withdrawal symptoms just about manageable.
I could go without t.v. yes but the circumstances would have to be exceptional - I'd need to be sponsored or seriously ill or kidnapped and taken to an island - I don't think I could voluntarily just stop watching t.v. - my t.v. would have to be taken away!
sure, I haven't been watching TV for months ! I am more addicted to computer instead of TV. Furthermore, most TV programs could be found in various websites. My TV is getting all the dust and spiderwebs now.
Yes. This is the biggest answer I got on another online forum. Considering we all love our Internet, it makes sense that TV is not always the biggest concern for people online. I should ask the question on a popular TV show forum.
I could definately make it a week or more if I was surrounded by countryside instead of the city. When I'm in the country, I spend all of my time outdoors, exploring, riding horses & watching wildlife. The city though, is a whole other deal where I want to hide-out in my house & not admit to myself that I live here.
I haven't had a TV in years. When I travel and I'm in hotels, I might watch it for an hour or two. But there's too much to do in the world to be wasting my whole life in front of TV shows. When I did have cable, I only really watched TV on rainy days or when I was sick. There aren't that many good shows. The ones I really like I can usually watch online for free but that doesn't amount to more than an hour a week.
I haven't had a TV for over 3 years. I use the internet most days but not for watching programs or the news. If you come right down to it, the news has very little positive impact on us. We can't change anything that we see on the news and it usually leaves a person feeling sad, powerless or angry. Pick up a book.
I agree. I never watch the news...it is very one-sided. It paints us a picture of the world that other people want us to see, while there are many good and positive things going on that never make the news. The news is meant to produce fear...
I've always been a bit "different" than others. I don't go with the flow, preferring to do my own thing. One of the things I don't do that most do is watch TV.I have not owned a TV in about 15 years. I think...
