How do you ween yourself from an internet addiction? I am absolutely dependent on online attention, and get massive fits of anxiety whenever I can't talk to someone, be on a forum, or generally have my existence aknowledged by an online forum. It wouldn't otherwise be a problem but I often end up resorting to self-harm or drinking to calm myself down, and if the conditions aren't external (such as the internet being completely down), I usually end up online anyway.

I'm too scared to talk about this to a professional of any kind, they'll just tell me to stop going online and consider the problem solved.

You can't ween yourself off of the internet, it's all or nothing.

But I start freaking out and doing damaging shit when I'm off of it.

The answer is [spoiler] you don't. [/spoiler]

Then get yourself committed.

I was committed once. It was terrible and the other inmates were scary. It did not help at all. I'll rather kill myself than ever get committed again.

I only got out of it when i moved and didn't have a computer for a while. (smartphones weren't a thing back then)

I just focused on school and got my shit together.

Unfortunately, I have a smartphone. I am online at all times, and severely anxious when separated from it.

It's kinda sad that people care about this shit.
>>
>>16524397
How do you stop caring?
>>
>>16524419
Convince yourself that it doesn't matter. No one cares about your opinions online and they're not needed for you to continue life. Just let it sink in.
>>
>>16524421
>>16524421
I know they don't care. But the illusion of having my existence aknowledged makes me feel safe.
>>
>>16524364
I was anxious too, nobody said it's going to be easy. Maybe getting rid of it is the first step you have to take.
>>
>>16524448
But I don't have an old one to use.
