Addicted?

Detox.
A good friend inspired this post.

Merriam-Webster:

Pronunciation: \ˈdē-ˌtäks, di-ˈtäks\
Function: noun
Usage: often attributive
Date: 1973

1 : detoxification from an intoxicating or addictive substance
2 : a detox program or facility

— detox verb


"intoxicating or addictive substance"...Facebook? Farmville? Mafia Wars? Blogs? World of Warcraft? Texting? Email? T.V? Radio? Internet?

Whatever it is you are addicted to..detox.

Goes hand in hand with Withdrawal

I don't recommend the pathological retreat thing . . . I'm lucky I survived the ones of my youth. Just trust me on that.

You are too funny!

The Way of the Cross is a great retreat. ;)

I agree with Sarah, the Way of the Cross is a great retreat! You are right...we need to detox in this life. I hope you are not going to detox from blogging!!

Mary, if she even tries to I'll kick her backside. HA! Just kidding! She doesn't post every day and Dawn is so differently wired from me (I feel guilty if I don't blog - or I have a compulsion to share every fart and iota, whereas Dawn definitely doesn't). ;) But, I am taking less time on the PC (even though it seems like I'm not to those who might come by my blog etc.). Facebook eats up a lot of my time where I can use it other ways: cross stitching, reading, cleaning, actually participating in life beyond this chair.

Dawn: What you did for Sarah (putting her blog into a book) was an incredibly thoughtful gesture!! How nice of you.
