Default Help ! Dealing with my addiction to Project Avalon

Ahem...

Dear all...

In fact you're all very dear to me. That's part of the problem.

I've been dipping in and out of Avalon over the last month or two. You probably noticed

But that's just it... the frequency is increasing... and I spent nearly all day yesterday posting on one thread or another.

You probably noticed

Just wondered if anyone else out there has trouble getting off this site, or returns more frequently than they'd ideally like in a sane world?

Perhaps you can put your thoughts here. Don't worry, I'm not trying to be subversive here. I love this site, and the call to love for JennyG is just one of the reasons to feel proud of what we can achieve as an online community.

However, the nub I feel, is like a very strong draw to the New Posts page...it's like my energy hooks into PA...and I can't get out. It's ridiculous !

I read another post and another, then I check back on other threads I've contributed to to see what others think, then I read posts that friends have contributed to.. send a message here and there and then its -
WHERE DID THAT DAY GO TO ??

It's a circle that just goes round and round... and there's no getting off, barring a call from the stomach or the bladder. Do I have an addictive personality?? Or is this normal forum behaviour ?

It would be great to know what constitutes average forum usage (30mins over lunch at work? An hour when you get home? Or on and off all Bl**y day?! lol)

I want to tell you that I love you all, and the topics are fascinating. And I love to write... and I love to debate..

You probably noticed

But how do you guys deal with leaving the site for a few days or hours.. and not following what's going on? Don't cha just have to know?

Welcome to the Avalons Anonymous thread.

dear kula, too much of anything isnt particularly good imo. if your thinking your dedicating too much time online or on anything then you prob are my friend. trust yourself and your inner feelings and do what feels right for you now. change is good. from my experience just do it...go wherever you need or want to or stop whatever you need or want to, aslong as you are not causing anyone heartache you must do what feels true and go with it. Take the leap. big love and peace always my friend

You are not alone! I am exactly the same Kulapops and I must admit my backside is getting pretty numb! I really need to get a grip on this as Iím falling behind my research and the books are piling up now.

For now, Iím just putting it down to being a newbe and am hoping the novelty will wear off eventually. Itís also a breath of fresh air to connect with like minded people as Iíve been a loner (by choice) for many years now and this last month is the most communication Iíve engaged in (even when I was working).

Donít fight it and just flow with it for now and know there are others in the invisible boat.

Thanks Gita... That's just how I feel. It's not like I don't have a life outside of Avalon.. but how can one not be drawn to so many like-minded people?

Maybe some people get the same buzz from a whist drive. But for me, I've always been defined by my slightly alternative take on the world.

Avalon has given a chance and a channel to explore and grow through those thoughts with like minded people. But Mikey's right... if it feels like too much, then it is. But I have long waited to fight the good fight... and it feels like that is what Avalon is... so it seems more important than ,say, the washing up... lolol.

What's great, is that there is a development for me. I started by spending lots of time reading up on all the 'doom and gloom'. Yes, it's fascinating when you first come across it. That doesn't attract me now. But the shifting play of energies and real people's development of their consciousness is so fascinating to watch , it's like staring into a fire of consciousness and my attention is riveted to the shifting flames, and not only that, but I feel a call to add my light to that fire...



Erm, yes. can i have that nice coat with the big white ties now...?

It's just that there is such a disconnect from what we know and are learning here, and the mainstream.

Truth and knowledge are power. Why wouldn't you want to tap into that? Especially when the people in the world around us are so very much asleep.

Hi Kulapops,

I recognize the feeling ... and I know you're not to blame. Probably you are constantly stimulated by the feeling that something is about to happen.
Lots of Avalonians will share that feeling (no coincidence).

But consider the paradox .... nothing will be happening if we all keep monitoring the state of the planet on our screens.
Switch of your computer and look outside the window, that's where life (at least as we know it now) takes place.
Your attention is needed there to manifest ... whatever you can imagine is needed in this world.

If we would be doing that a bit more frequently with sincerity there would be more wonderful things to report.

Have a nice day

It seems to me that coming to this site is an escape from the world or what it has turned in to ,
The people on avalon are lovely caring ,friendly ,etc ,you dont see this in your everyday life, Out there everyone in a hurry and have stopped thinking it seems
I have not been on avalon long but feel the people are part of my family ,
I can relate to most posts of either experiencing it or learning from it ,
SO GLAD I joined ,even though house work has gone out the window lol,

Great Zaina ! This is what I wanted to know... So it's not just me.. Again at Avalon.. we find we are not alone.

As for going outside operator, I completely agree... in fact I started a thread entitled Step Away from the PC only a few months ago.. so it's a reoccuring theme for me. It was the subscription that saved me before that (that is not paying).

The solution is not leaving Avalon... because I think it is important and we are united in so many endeavours... but trying to find a way to dip in and out.

Do I really have to set the kitchen timer ?! lol...

your so funny kulapops! (compliment)

I can certainly think of a LOT worse things to be addicted to!

a good rule of thumb for me is the saying "everything in moderation... including moderation"

besides, your feeding your brain here which is MUCH better that watching TV or surfing the net for porn

PLUS... you make us laff, so I'm always glad to see ya!

cheers!

A healthy regimen of distractions is always good for perspective, and so...

Deteriorata

An energetic Screen Cleaner

A nice Cowboy Story

And when all that fails, there is the ever popular...

Bubble Wrap!

And you guys thought I was just another pretty face!

Ha!

Smile Re: Help ! Dealing with my addiction to Project Avalon

hi kulapops ...

sometimes we are like pendulums ... swinging waaaay over to the farthest side and then waaaay back ... but eventually finding a nice balance within center ...

there are days when i can't seem to pry myself from here ... communication is so much deeper and richer than that of the surface fluff elsewhere ... i figure as long as i've showered at least once during that time ... then i'm exactly where i should be ...

but mostly ... i have found my balance ... rotating what needs to be done ... playing within nature ... and participating here ...

you will find that balance too ... once your cup is full and about to overflow ... you'll know it is time for a bit of a break ... could be just a day or more ... and you'll return with perhaps a newfound wisdom and a refreshed outlook ...

love reading your posts ... remember to feed the dog and shower ...

yes, kulapops..you tried to flee Avalon last year and you were successful. The subscription helped you with making that decision. i remember your thread about getting off the computer...it was good advice. probably you wrote it more for yourself as you sensed that you were getting addicted.. You did quite well for a long time and now it's got you.... may be we should create an equivalent of AA....We'll call it :AtA -- Addicted to Avalon....
It is hard not to even lurk daily here....
I am waiting for spring to undergo some "Avalon detox"....Now it is cold, plenty of snow, one wants to spend more time at home....It will be easier once the weather gets warmer....

Oops. I wonder how it's doing...



I wasn't going to post again today. I swore I wasn't going to post again!

Honest...

But Fred, I'm still rolling around after reading your desiderata take...



Don't you just love it when the silly hands of time strike the gloating face of seriousness ?

I'm not leaving Avalon.. btw... I'm just trying to leave... call it a cry for help

lol

And Rhythm.. you're on for a guiness... !

Thanks Burgundia... It was as much for me as for anyone else... though I'm genuinely intrigued to know how you all cope??

Yes.. I thought I had it cracked... Then the rotters running the world invented Swine Flu.. and that got me back to my Avalon family (cost me $5 by the way.. did I tell anyone?? ) And then the rotters at Avalon went and axed the subscription. It's criminal I tell you...

Now I'm sucked in like an orange into a hoover. Can't...get... my ..head out.

Just think how bad it'd be with my addiction problems if I bought a fembot... I might never leave the house !!
