How to Overcome a TV Addiction

Getting hooked on a TV show can be a traumatic experience, but don’t worry there are a number of solutions to this, very real, problem.

Poke your eyes out

Sometimes the direct approach is the best and by poking out your eyes you also get the added bonus of not having to pay for contact lenses or glasses, if you need them, and you get to bring your dog into places, like restaurants, were dogs wouldn’t normally be allowed.  Another advantage is that no longer will you have to worry about some stranger coming up and poking your eyes out, it’s already done and you’ve saved them the time.

Break the TV

No TV = no problem, right?  If, on a lazy Saturday night, you decide to put your fist through the screen, in an attempt to encourage Ted to hurry up and get to the point, then the temptation is cut off at the source, but seriously come on Ted this information is irrelevant to how you actually met their mother don’t toy with me.

Leave the remote somewhere far away

Next time you leave the country, why not take the remote with you and don’t worry about bringing it back.  Most people won’t sit through another flight just to change the channel and don’t worry about the buttons on the TV you won’t think of that, you never do (until you’ve torn the how apart looking).

Burn the entire cast

Well sure there are reruns, but is it ever really the same?

Promise yourself a gift in return for stopping

The best incentive to do anything is getting a reward.  So, in exchange for cutting back on your addiction, why not buy yourself the box set?  It’s so not the same thing as watching it on TV, this time you are in control and that means it can’t be bad.

Remember getting addicted to a TV program is a natural thing and is not your fault.  If you need further support then I suggest giving up.  Though I don’t advice you to try any of the methods listed, I do want to know have you ever, or do you now, have a show that you just have to see?  What is/was it?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also please feel free to subscribe/follow and, if you like this post, click the like button.

    I don’t really get addicted to tv shows. I end up really liking them and then bam end of season comes and I lose interest in waiting for it to come back. I agree with you about Ted he needs to spill the beans on how he actually met their mother. 🙂
