I realize that while TV keeps me occupied &satisfied, other facets of my life have been declining. TV shows make stories so nicely wrapped up; I don’t know how to problem solve in my own life so much anymore. Movies are better because you don’t have to watch something like 80 hours to stay on the story, and they tend to have more meaning. I’m in the beginning of my 20’s and don’t want to think back and wish I didn’t let television devour my youth. I want to seize life’s opportunities; live it; not watch it happen. 7 months ago

How I did it: I didn't conciously stop watching. I just intuitively stopped wasting my time in front of a TV, as I realized how crappy it became after time.
Today, I pretty much regard television as a dead medium from the 20th century, and it is nothing more than a childhood memory for me. Its been more than half a decade that I ever switched one on. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
Im a figure competitor in bodybuilding contests now. I go to the gym five days a week for 1 1/2 hours. When I get home I just eat and go to bed. There’s no time or energy to watch tv. 18 months ago
I usually turn the TV on and leave it running in the background, even if I’m not actively watching it, but lately, I’ve just been turning it off. I also used to leave it on when I went to bed, but I’ve stopped even turning it on in my bedroom when I go to bed. I seem to sleep better this way, and my dreams are cooler, too. When the TV was on, whatever was happening on there would affect my dreams, but apparently, my brain can go off onto delightfully weird paths now that nothing’s distracting it. 23 months ago
