Could You Go Without TV For a Week?
Would you be able to go without watching TV for one week. Absolutely none, even on the Internet?
Sure I could and I would probably get a lot of things done I have been waiting to do. I need to turn off the TV and this darn computer and maybe I would get things done once again!!
That's exactly why I want to give it up for a week at least...I need to get some stuff done around here!
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!
I could definitely go a week without watching it, but then my dvr would be full and I'd spend the next week doing nothing but catching up!
Easily. In fact, I've done it many times and for periods longer than a week.
I could do without. However, I definately desire not to. It helps pass the time and I love having it on while I do 10 things on the computer each night.
That is exactly it. TV has become a part of our day in many ways - a distraction, an entertainer, an informer, and sometimes a time waster.
Sometimes. Whenever the TV is on, I'm always doing something else as well.
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.
I have, actually I don't have a TV, I've been without one for an entire year and I have done much more things than I used to when I had one...
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 can definitely. But if the question is if I can go without a week then that would be another story.
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've been away from home for almost four years now and i could say, i survived without TV...
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 wouldn't *want* to unless someone was paying me well, but of course I could. I'd just use my DVR to record the shows I'd be missing.
In seriousness, I wouldn't do it unless as stated above someone was paying me. I don't see any reason to. Good television stimulates my mind just as a book does and mindless TV helps me relax.

At what point is it ok to REMAIN in a relationship where one is addicted to porn sites. It is getting a bit much. I am not an insecure person by any means, yet I can't help to think that this can't be healthy for our long term romance. Please advise me. I have never had to deal with someone...
