How I got rid of my k-drama addiction?

Well I was once a k-drama addict, & watched over 60+ dramas in 2-3 these two months while the whole world is running on I was in front of my laptop watching k-dramas without sleeping / eating / working{/studying} etc... Do you know when I realized it I have tons of pending work{which I never usually have..}, lost some of my memory😂😂, not understanding what to do...

So if you are also similar to me then you are also addicted to k-dramas....there is no reason to deny it. Accept it that makes you decrease your addiction.

When you started to see you will even forget your problems if it is a funny/serious/..some other genre drama. But some times we can't stop watching one after another dramas...{like I liked Lee Do-hyun's acting in Hotel del Luna so I watched him in 18 again[in this case I watched 2 only{as he is new} but some times for example. lee jong suk I watched 9-10 at a time} [This ain't a good sign!!].

Just keep on watching until you get sick of it

As mentioned above I watched 60+ dramas in 2-3 months while doing nothing except watching when I completed 70-80 dramas my taste changed I watched dramas that are superb only{or else dropped}...while I completed almost 80 dramas in 2-3 months it took me 3 months to watch 12 more dramas

  • Who knows maybe you will also get sick of it one day....
  • Or else realize that entire world is running but you are wasting your time & start studying/working...

3.Find another hobbies / other work that is as exciting as k-dramas...

Note while choosing a hobby :

  • Don't choose watching/blogs/vlogs/etc...anything about k-dramas...

As choosing any hobby makes you think less about dramas and slowly you can get rid of it.

These made me watch K-dramas less....but these doesn't work for let's know other ways that might work for you.....

Other ways to quit k-dramas :

These are ways I didn't used but might be helpful to you....

1.Being a workaholic or schoolaholic....

Our puppy Winston is always curious, especially with everything we’re doing.  Fairly often he wants right up close to the laptop when I have it on my lap.  This day I had it on the couch where he was and his curiosity with the screen allowed me to make this photo.

As my drama period started while the world is in lock down{corona virus} I didn't get to do this....anyway if lock down isn't there I wouldn't have even watched dramas....

This might be so much helpful as you keep yourself busy & forget about drama / virtual life...

2.Get a real boyfriend / girlfriend ...💑


Actually I want to get a girlfriend but I just didn't do it / maybe not found one.....

As both live in real world / you will be afraid to tell your partner & quit it....if you get a girlfriend/boyfriend who also watches dramas don't think you will quit dramas.

3.Get a true job / dream job

True job

Get yourself a true job or dream job , then you will quit k-dramas on your own....

4.Use productivity apps in phones / laptops...

Productivity / source

Install cold turkey blocker / focus me / etc... in your pc & lock me out / forest /etc... in phone these blockers won't let you hack them so you can keep a block and stop watching dramas ..

Hope you will be also able to stop your addiction over k-dramas...
