A couple of years ago, I remember TV's pop psychologist saying that the only way to get rid of one behavior is to replace it with another. This always made sense to me. And now I find it to be strangely true in my own life's experience.

Take for instance my addiction to a certain fan forum. I used to post there too much. Now that I have started writing a journal and chat with others in real time, I am finding the whole posting thing to be a real drag.

This is a good thing. I just hope I won't be looking for a behavior to replace chatting with in the future.

Why can't I do anything in moderation?

  • Why can't you do anything in moderation? It's simply not the American way.
    Actually, it's not the Morrissey fan way.

    Let's examine this: we love him deeply, passionately, desperately. If you're anything like me you've driven yourself to near ruin for the Moz. It's worth every minute.

    But it's definitely not temperate, moderate, or balanced.

    Ah, moz...

  • Because you're repressed somehow? Frustrated and are seeking that orgasm that all the hype suggests is there if you take enough? I've often wondered the same about myself.
