Okay, so I have to write something today. I don’t know what to say other than I worked yesterday and didn’t really check my social media most of the day. Last night, I spent a lot of time on the phone checking stuff, but at least when I work and am socially engaged, using my brain, etc., I don’t feel like I need to do that stuff. Maybe that is really the ticket for me.
I do remember reading some years ago that some researchers could easily get mice/rats addicted to some hard drug by keeping them in normal cages without their friends. The moment they gave most of those guys access to others like them, in a bigger cage, with more things to do, they mostly rejected the addictive stuff. People are the same, mostly. It makes sense that being with others and doing fun stuff would make you uninterested in the bad stuff.
