I Need To Stop

I guess I’ll just jump right into it. I’ve been reading fanfiction for quite a while now, about 5 or 6 years. I had a little bit of trouble being bullied when I was younger, and one day I found fanfiction. It changed my life, and became really obsessed about it. Whatever topic I was interested at the time I would read about it on fanfiction for sometimes 5 and 6 hours at a time. It has really caused a strain between me and my parents. My parents know that I am a fast typer so they believe that I am working on the computer, but I have been spending entire weekends Friday, Saturday, and Sunday reading and “escaping.” They have no idea why it’s taking me so long to “finish my work.” I haven’t gone out with friends and it’s the middle of my junior year and I don’t want this year or my high school career to slip by without me enjoying it, but that’s what’s happening. Someone please help its making me a little depressed honestly.

It my third day going cold turkey and it's emotionally straining but I feel much more free and that I actually have a life now; I feel alive and that's only after 3 days

Sometimes, stories can be deceptive and ruin lives a lot but seriously if you keep having this thought, you are like most people whose eyes are covered in a black blanket with a map but no direction at all. There is life, find it!

Why not talk about it and find advice from others? This website might be able to help a little, at the very least:


Work first, fanfic as a reward.
