Follow up to addiction

I was just talking to someone about Facebook and how it is destroying families and marriages.  I am not surprised by this at all.  It is a sad world we live in. 

I will say that I was so into being on Facebook and checking up on people and whatnot that finally I stepped back and sort of "snapped" out of it.  I knew that I couldn't do it on my own, so I asked my hubby to change my password...and NOT TELL ME!  :)  I will say that it has been good for me to be off.  I don't spend as much time on the computer and I am able to do other things.  I get on occassionally and I get on under Luke's name once a day and it is fine.  I don't feel like I have to be completely consumed by it. 

I know that many addiction solutions aren't this easy, but enlist the help of loved ones.  (That's why they're called loved ones. :)

It's great that you brought this up. And thanks for being honest. I think it's a bigger problem than we realize. Just because we aren't addicted to something like pornography doesn't mean we don't have a problem with something on a smaller scale. Any addiction can keep us from feeling the spirit of the Lord in our lives like we should. Great post!
