Did you avoid tv & movies at first?

I feel like I am avoiding any tv show or movie lately. I think partially because thatís when I would feel comfortable to start my binge each night but I also think itís because alcohol is protested so often and I donít want any temptation.

To a degree but I still watched series on netflix. The issue with me was focus, I'd lose track of what was going on plot wise and just get bored.

I play a lot of video games to keep my mind off of things

I'm enjoyed binge watching Stranger Things.

I used to binge watch lots of shows. Can't remember most of them, and would get lost because I forgot what I'd watched last week.

Need to rewatch the last season of Sense8 before the movie comes out.

No - Not for alcohol addiction, but I relate entirely.

When my son dies I didn't watch TV for months. I had to manage all 'input' so carefully because I was so exceptionally delicate. Any poorly advised 'input' could have set me off on a self destructive course of action at any moment. I had to stop myself being triggered into hurting myself permanently.

So I relate 100%

If you think TV or films could trigger you then you have your own answer. You really don;t need ours as I didn't need any counselling to come to my decision around the same thing nearly 10 years ago.

Regards,

JT

Not for me tv, music, diving, movies, games got me through early days. I didn’t watch any of the drinking movies though, ie the ones I’d watch after a gut full of booze!

I avoided anything that would make my AV loud.

It was all my using friends & bars.

I didn't avoid TV, but I became more aware of all the alcohol commercials.

Have you ever noticed that most people on TV don't finish their drinks? They order a beverage, it arrives, they take a small sip, someone talks to them, then they put it down and walk away.

I rarely see this behavior in real life. Even most of the normies I know finish their drinks.
