Today a friend has shared a tiktok in our groupchat. She didn’t have bad intentions but seeing that tiktok link has caused me anxiety and anger. Now i feel a little better. I try not to vent my anger towards others.
What about the tiktok made you upset? Was it the content in the link?
@Runningfree I think the problem is not the content of the link. After seeing the link i had the fear of go back to my bad habits
Maybe I’m misunderstanding your DOC. If it is watching hours of tiktok then I can see where you are coming from. I have recently started to limit my time on there and some days don’t go at all.
Stay strong in whatever you need to do for yourself
Edit- I saw your other thread. I can see how your friend sending a link could derail you. Have you asked your friends to not send those? Or can you remove yourself from the group chat?
Tiktok is scary shit when it comes to technology related addiction. You watch one clip that gives you dopamine. A couple seconds later you’re watching a new clip giving a new dopamine boost. And again. And again. And down the rabbit hole you go. I try to avoid tiktok. It’s too dangerous for me.
@Runningfree I have asked my friend to not share links of tiktok and they have understood.
That is cool! Protecting your sobriety like a pro
I get the same feeling when i turn on the tv and watch the news, simple fix for me is to limit my use or just turn it off.
