Why you've failed quitting thus far

Being harder on yourself is not the answer

I'm not here to beat you up more than you're probably already doing yourself. At least, that's what I used to do. The whole idea formed when I asked myself: What if I rewarded myself for good behavior instead of punishing myself for bad behavior?

I admit, I'm not inventing a cancer cure here. But, for the self-flagellating mind, it's quite the mental bombshell!

My social media addiction.
