I've been learning that for myself, media use is continuing to be a huge problem for me even after I'm successful in quitting gaming. Although this topic comes up in recovery meetings, I realize I can't address the issue effectively because media use differs from gaming in a few key ways. For instance, most of us can't just "quit" media. I need to use it frequently at work, and I use my computer at home all of the time even when I'm engaging in healthy behaviors (such as reading, writing, working on research, etc).
The reason I'm bringing this up is because I'm wondering two things. First, is there a greatment group anyone is aware of that specifically addresses all types of media use? Second, for those of you that have been successful in moderating your media use, what has helped you do this most effectively? Any suggestions would be a tremendous help, as I'm tired of failing to control my media use and really need help in taking greater steps to change.
I'll put something here later.
