    Yeah, I'm a bit concerned that I may be addicted to Youtube... But I am also watching some seminars via Youtube, so I would probably need to download them if I ever decide to do these kind of challenge.

    Well, you can "get away" with that as long as you do not continue to hang on FB and waste time looking for song after song or funny clips or what have you that might be of immidiate interest. Watch the seminar, then shut it down is my advice, which can be taken or leaven :)

    Yes. Totally agree. However I relapsed once listening to music with very triggering content. So I have to be more careful. But at the same time. Music is much better than PMO. And I feel the feelings in my body when I listen to something that touches me. Then I can start to cry if I am in reboot. If I am in relapse I don't feel anything. So I think I should continue listening to music.
     
  4. I can relate to that. Although it affects me much the same regardless of my reboot/relapse status. It is healthy to cry.

    I'm on my 30th day so tomorrow I've finished off a month without listening to music voluntarily. I say voluntarily because music is everywhere where you go whether It's in the bus, grocery store etc.. So you can't really avoid it but rather ignore it.

    To be quite honest it hasn't. That's because music isn't important part of my life to begin with. Having said that I've stopped listening to music when going out for like 3 years (excluding the radio of my parents car). I stopped because I felt like I wasn't present. Also because I was using my phones headphones when listening to music I had to have the volume quite loud in order to hear anything. This is of course in crowded places and public transport for example.

    So my reason for not listening to music when going out was quite simple back then; to be present in the moment. As for these 30 days the only thing changed is that I could hear the engine of the car when I drive and also could hear the sound when shifting the gear. It was really satisfying and for some reason made me really happy.

    What comes to time at home I've been quite busy with uni stuff and I can't concentrate if I have something on the background. As for the freetime at home I usually rest or just enjoy the silence and read stuff.

    That's a great answer.
    I wasn't expecting it to make so much sense, but I understand.
    I love music, but I also love silence.

    Checking in, today is day 2. I had some urges yesterday, Trap Nation uploaded a new song, but I managed to resist.
