I'm Scared......I really am.
I have been addicted to fanfics for the past 1 year. It may not seem so much but after reading for 10-12 hours on a daily basis, it is scary. It all started when last year I was going through a rough patch in my life with a messy breakup and the death of my grandpa. I loved the way it numbed my pain and never realised how addicted I'd become until it was out of control.
I used to be a class topper but it all changed the time I started reading fanfics. The problem wasn't my slipping grades but the fact that it stopped bothering me.
Everytime I got a test paper back I'd feel bad and I'd vow to study harder but it went down the drain when came back home and switched on my computer.
It got so bad that I would stay at home for days, without bathing, eating or maybe even brushing my teeth for days just to read fanfics!!
My parents being busy don't know as to what's going on in my life. They just don't know as to what happened to me.But I do and I'm scared that I'll be a loner, who doesn't have a life outside the virtual world. This has to stop. Any tips on it would be really appreciated. Thnx in advance.
