    I suspect many of us here have that sense of wanting to escape from reality and seeking the types of distraction you mention.

    Perhaps you need to find something meaningful in your life. Some way of contributing to the greater good (e.g. helping others). Or perhaps you could focus on creating something (writing, music, painting, gardening etc).

    Are you retired or do you still work?

    Hey there forlorn. Thanks for the response No, I still work. Will probably do so as long as health holds up. I'm in my late 60s but never planned well for retirement:eek::(

    You are right forlorn. We WILL fill our lives with something.
    Still fighting the fight

    Warm regards
    Boxer

    Boxer17,
    I'm 66 still working. and you are correct we need to decide what we fill our lives with. my porn use sure used to waste a lot of time. hang in there. I'm not dead yet. so I may as well live. and live clean and sober. come what may. I like paul simon too. there is a song that haunts me everytime I hear it. "Emily whenever I may find her".

    Yes. I love that song. I love many of Paul Simon's works
    Especially a lot of the early stuff. Cloudy, April comes she will, the leaves that are green. I know it's very commercialized but bridge over troubled Waters is a good one too

    Hello everyone. Just checking in. I am staying busy. Health seems good so far My employment is deemed essential so work has not been impacted by the corona hysteria surrounding us.
    I am still fighting the fight. I sometimes fall but get up again. I don't know if I will ever utterly vanquish this negative aspect of my life but I do fight to control it.
    Merry Christmas!
    And let's all hope that the next year finds us moving in positive directions.

    Warm regards to all
