@Fry2, Thank you so much for this encouragement. I often feel like I'm walking alone in the mission to give up social media, great to hear that you guys are enjoying success and the benefits of being free of invasive media content, the worst by far being porn. I agree, it is a lifetime process, which we walk (not run) steadily, but we have each other. The Big Book of AA says "We trudge the road of Happy destiny." One of my sponsors explained how profound this was, that the journey is not a sprint, or even a brisk walk, but we "trudge" through this journey, each step taken carefully, sometimes with great difficulty, sometimes painful, but each step is happy because we gain freedom from obsession and compulsion to drink or act out. We are no longer enslaved. I've logged onto Facebook and Instagram a couple of times, but each time I know I shouldn't be there. I'm grateful that I have managed to click away quite quickly without getting sucked in, so heading to about two weeks now since I did get dragged in and was lot in it. But now, I tend to compulsively go onto Whatsapp, which is a bit more practical as it keeps me in touch with family, friends, work, my training group/instructor and even my recovery group, as well as church. The problem is when I get pulled into looking at people's statuses, but it is nowhere near the level of obsession as facebook, which pushes so much content down our throats and which has such a huge archive of other people's content, their friends, strangers etc, same with Instagram. I was never big into Twitter, but Youtube is a potentially seductive space, and can easily suck hours of my time. Life at the moment is filled with so many blessings. Me and my wife welcome a healthy baby into the world, I'm in love. I could look at the many things that I might be dissatisfied with, and there are definitely challenges, as any life should have, but I feel blessed. I am grateful to this forum, to my family, my group in SAA, my friends and even my colleagues who have been so supportive to me. I'm back at work and miss baby, but I know the Lord has me covered each step. Now just praying that I make positive adjustments in my life, keep myself occupied with productive activity, things that allow me to grow spiritually and in help me be more productive in my responsibilities.
