It’s 2 days into the month and I’ve already had 3 close calls in me opening Facebook. It has become evident to me that Facebook had become integrated into my daily routine and I’ve decided that I did not like that. Late August I decided to do a 30 day challenge of not logging on to Facebook.
My friend Isabela had challenged me a little while back for us not to get on Facebook for a week and at the time I thought the idea was absurd. Why would I not log on to Facebook it’s my primary way of staying in touch with friends and family. After that though I started to notice that I barely had any contact with my friends and family. I gave the occasional comment on their posts and ‘likes’ but I never really had any conversations with anyone. So that’s when I decided September 1st I will be taking a break from Facebook. I even announced it on my Timeline. I had suggested that if anyone wants my phone number, email, or even mailing address they could send me a private message for my info. Not one person did.
Facebook had ruined my social life. There was a time in my life where I would wake up in the morning, look down at my phone and it would show me that I had 12 new text messages. Those days are over it seems…it’s time for me to reach out to my close family and friends and establish communications again.
I deleted Facebook from my iPad and my Blackberry. I asked my husband if there was a way for me to block myself from the facebook website on my laptop. He said there is a way he can block the site and require a password to access it but he said it’s more important that I practice self control. *sighs* I guess this is why it’s a challenge.
Dare I say it? Am I a Facebook Addict?
