Obsessions

Standard

candycrush

I have taken a second break from my Candy Crush obsession and find that I
have lots of time these days. It’s unbelievable how much time one can
actually waste on those things. The last time, I stayed away from it for
more than 6 months. This time I want to perhaps go back after April 2016…
not sure why I picked that time but it seems like something I can do. I enjoy
playing candy crush, it’s fun and a challenge when I spend just a few minutes
on it. When it interferes with my daily routine, though, it begins to worry
me. I am not sure why I haven’t removed it from my phone since I know that
in the scale of what’s important, it is certainly not adding anything to my
life but that is where I am right now.

It’s funny, I have tremendous will power sometimes but it doesn’t always
mean I have discipline. For example, I find that I don’t miss candy crush
but if I see an open bag of snickers (the teeny ones) lying on the counter,
I find I don’t have the discipline to walk by without grabbing at least one!
Today, I actually did close the open bag and put it high in the cupboard
where it is not easy for me (with my height handicap) to reach. I hope I can
continue to do that every time I find myself reaching for food mindlessly.
