I am lucky I was never addicted to it and my son doesn't watch it either.
But I think just turning it oiff is a good idea. lol
I do have a TV at the moment but I watch it about 12 times a year, maybe, and only if someone is visiting and they are into watching tv, but my thoughs are always else where. lol
I really only have it because my friends and family like tv, so it's there for them.
