That's what happens when your truck has a spoiler.

Welcome D! It's good to see you back. (Did you get my email?)
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

Quick question for the klal:

I am at my parents for bein hazmanim and they have a tv. Its very hard not to reach for the remote and see whats on. I really don't want to watch movies or tv although i do recognize that it is fun and entertaining. However it wastes a lot of time and obviously the content is not so pg. 

Anyhow have any past experience/ideas?

Hey D, thanks for the question.  Here's 2 cents.  I live at my parents home, and there is a TV, which I am trying not to watch.  But I don't drive myself crazy about watching if someone else turns it on.  I just avoid turning it on myself, turning it to a channel I want to watch, sitting down to watch an entire movie... things like that.  It's helpful because I know how addicting it gets for me otherwise.

Also, if you're not in the TV room with the remote, what will you be doing instead?

My parents have a TV too. In the past, I even had one in my room, which obviously caused major problems, even though it's not cable.

Watching real TV shows was never accepted for us kids in my house, but when I closed the door to my room, nobody knew what I was doing.

Nowadays, I still allow myself to watch sports when I'm home. The thing is, sports has commercials, and after the game the news comes on, and you never know if an innocent segment about the flooding in Louisiana can turn into a lust fest for you because the reporter is not dressed the way you're good side would prefer.

Basically, what I'm saying is: Me Too. What I wrote above happened today, and I'm feeling pretty down about the fact that I sat in front of the screen for so long, even though most of it was totally innocent.

Yet another thing to struggle with...



BTW Hi Dms1234! I'm new here, nice to meet you!

Thank you everyone for replying. 

I realize a few things. First, i need to spend less time at home and when i am home always have some task or activity in my mind to do. Also spend as less time in the TV room as possible. I did create a reward tapsic which has helped. As always i need to chill, take a deep breath and realize i am not the master of the world.

Just a quick thing. One thing that has really helped me in the past 2 years is being in constant contact with people in particular with someone who i have tried to be in contact everyday. It helps to get all of my problems off my chest and to have someone to ask advice from. 

BH i have been doing very well the past few days. Just trying to be simple and take it one day at a time
