For the past 3 months I've been stuyding for my medical boards. Each day I found myself looking forward to my breaks so I can come on where else.....tPF!! So I started noticing that it was a distraction. And that I spent way too much time on tPF, time I needed to study instead. So I did the unthinkable; I banned myself from the forum until I was done with boards (which was today). Here was my experience and I wanted to share it with everybody: 1. It was EXTREMELY hard for the first two days. I was seriously having withdrawl symptoms. That only happens when someone is addicted. Many of us joke about it, but it's simply the case. Coming here is an addiciton. 2. I felt like I was missing something in my day. Being without it was strange. I had to change my daily online routine. 3. I started daydreaming of what you girls were talking about, and about all the fun I was missing. 4. This is the most revealing discovery....my desire for bags decreased TREMENDOUSLY!!! I didn't care about the bags on my wish list anymore. I would carry my other bags and realized I was completely satisfied with what I have. In fact, I realized that I already have so much. I don't even use all of them. Some haven't been touched at all (like my MJ Stam and Dior shopper and MC Alma). I started thinking I was ridiculous for wanting more. It was quite an eye-opening experience. I'm glad I did it. 5. Even coming back today, I feel like the luster of tPF has faded away (no offense ladies). I don't get the same joy out of it. Everything seems old to me; same topics, same people, same desires. Nothing has changed. Which is great for some. But I realized I'm not missing anything. So, I propose that you put yourself on a ban and see how long it lasts. Try to see what you learn about yourself and if you really need /want all the bags you're planning to purchase. I just had a rather sober epiphany and I wanted to maybe have you guys experience it as well. If anyone does it, good luck!!!!
