I'm sick of it, but I'm still hooked. I can't just "turn it off," because sooner or later it goes back on. I'm thinking about giving my two TVs to my daughters in a month or so when the oldest gets her first apartment. Then there won't be any in the house.
I know some of you have already done this. I'm wondering how long it takes to ween oneself off the thing? As much as I loathe it I have to admit there are a few television shows that I enjoy. I just don't have the discipline to only turn it on for those few shows.
Soi...how long is the withdrawal? And what, if any, pleasant and unexpected benefits did you gain? I'm counting on doing more cycling, reading, and maybe even a more positive outlook on life without the daily news programs. What else?
