Taming Your Tech resources

  1. Read these two short pieces about what recovery is and what it isn’t.
  2. Understand your psychological wound via my kintsugi theory. (though sometimes you just want dopamine kicks)
  3. Bookmark my Panic Button and click it when you feel strong cravings. It’ll only make sense once you understand my kintsugi theory, though.
  4. Pick a blocker from my comparison chart. Curated to save you time and frustration.
  5. Have you considered a free membership to Tamers Lodge?
Remember, addictions form when a psychological need goes unmet. The addictive object often facilitates that by being addictive, but it's a two-way street. Only through healthy substitution—building a life that rules out addiction—can you overcome the "need." Escapism is a bandage.
