Hello my name is Jan and I am a Facebook addict right now! I have been on Facebook since 2007 and when I started I would only check it once a day maybe. It was just a way to keep up with old school friends and then new friends and it went from just an online year book to my life. I have
been sucked into the force that is hard to get out of! I really don’t understand why Facebook has to consume my life or why even tho I have tried I still can not stop! I can’t believe I’m a Facebook addict but I have somethings for you to know. There are days that there is nothing going on with Facebook, no one post anything and I am just looking and scrolling thur posts I have seen two or even three times. I know I have a problem but how I fix it beats me!
Hello I am Jan and I am a Facebook addict and a full time mother. I’ve heard my husband say My wife is addicted to Facebook
how is that possible? How can I be a full time great mother yet be addicted to Facebook that wastes your times? I would love to say that I manage my time well but I don’t! While my kids play and make memories I am sitting there on my phone scrolling thur Facebook to see what my ‘friends’ are doing. Half the time I am re reading a post I have already liked and commented on. I would say I have issues. Where are my priorities, with Facebook or with my kids? Yet no matter how I try to stay off of Facebook the more I want it.
Have you ever gone thur your friends? I mean I have like three hundred plus, really am I really that popular? No in real life I have maybe like ten. I do have a large family and that is one way we all keep in touch. But I am not stocking my family’s post or pictures it is my so called friends! Over two hundred of my friends I haven’t seen or talked to in over ten years! What’s the point of even being ‘friends’? I realize my Facebook addiction
had somewhat taken over my life, and that is the first step in getting your real life back! Wouldn’t it be awesome to live your life? I hope I can and I hope you can to! If your reading this your are already seeking help you want to stop but just like me you don’t know how!
Well we can always follow the AAA meetings, they have really good advice if you have never read their steps I encourage you to check them out! Of course like I have said the first step is admitting you have a problem! Say it over and over again! My name is Jan and I am a Facebook addict.
I get on my Facebook, I am not kidding over 50 times a days! Literally all the time!!! So my second step is to just try. Try to go one day with only looking at Facebook twice. Maybe it’s morning when you wake up and before bed to see what you missed. But along with this step comes goals, set goals you want to achieve like clean out the garage or play with my kids out side for at least one hour. That way you can keep your mind busy so you don’t even think about what Facebook is doing without you or what Sally and Tina are doing. I know this will be hard but that’s why we are doing this together! And just like in those Facebook addict or AAA meetings when you fall down and have a bad day, it’s ok! You can pull yourself back up and try again!
Always be thinking of your goals and what is most important to you! Let’s say you are me and you have two kids you love so much and you really just need to focus on them. So when that thought comes to your mind hey go check Facebook, just push it aside and think of the kids and how they need there mom. It works for me almost every time!
Please remember you can do anything you set your mind too! My name is Jan and I am a Facebook addict and a mom thats trying to be a better person!
