This is the third post in a row on social media addiction! A friend sent me a link today to a a ten point plan to help deal with social media addiction (via thoughtpick.com)
I know that my addiction started during the summer when I had plenty of time on my hands and was grieving a pregnancy loss. Reaching out online to others who seemed to care helped me feel less alone in my grief and seemed to provide the distraction I needed. When my friends and family in “real life” had tired of listening to me, I could always find someone online who seemed to understand. Add to this the fact that part of my job actually involves social media utilisation and don’t need to find an excuse to get my hit.
Read the post here and let me know what you think.
