How To Get Rid Of Being A Scrooler?

Most of my day is spent at home. I don't even have 1 real/online friend. All I do is sit at home and stare at the computer.

What can I really do besides accepting fate, what are your recommendations?

    Life can be thought of as an objective completion game, so you need a long term objective, and then you nee to figure out the steps you can take to move towards it.

      You made a very good analogy, but I don't see life that way. Why do we accomplish anything, eventually we live an average of 80 years and die. After death, even if you achieve something, you will be forgotten in a week maximum. Even Queen Elizabeth's death was not on the agenda for a week.

        If you're not living in service of something or someone, then you're already dead. It doesn't matter whether your heart is technically beating or not. There is something for you to dedicate yourself towards, but you need to search your mind to find it.
        Of course, to search your mind you'll have to stop scrolling and just sit, by yourself. It's a really intimate experience and not everyone can do it.

        Yes. That's your problem. Fortunately as a human this corrects itself over time the more you engage with life.

        >Why do we accomplish anything, eventually we live an average of 80 years and die.
        There's stuff between the maternity ward and the crematorium. Do you stop reading sentences because you know it's going to end? Do you ignore beautiful or uplifting music because it won't play forever?

        You think there is no difference between 80 years of life with happiness and pleasure and 80 years of life in pain and depression. It looks you’re headed straight for the worse kind of life.

      You'll be dead.
      Nothing will matter.

      What matters is now. Here. Today

        But what if reincarnation is real and our next life is shaped by what we did in the previous life, so that nothing we do here is in vain?

    Literally just go outside. Walk in nature. Look at the animals and plants. Enjoy the fresh air. Learn to be alone with your thoughts. Leave your phone in your pocket.
    This in itself should help, but later you can start with running, working out, or an actual team sport.

      For 1.5 years or so, I wasted my time with conspiracy theories (from early 2020 to early 2022). Before I went into full psychosis, I started asking myself "what the fuck am I doing" and cut the connection between me and ridiculous conspiracy theories.

      I'm actually not wasting my time at home now. I spend most of the day studying math to go to university. Maybe after I gain my own economic independence and socialize, I will get out of this hell, hopefully, one day.

        Dude. You will become an actual schizo this way. Seriously, go outside for a few hours. Find some actual people to talk to IRL. No human contact will seriously fuck you up. Personal experience.

          I was fine in social relations before puberty, but after puberty my Tourette syndrome increased a lot. This exacerbated the social phobia I already had.

          When my tics subside, I always put it on something else. This time I involuntarily rub my palms.

          I have no choice but to study because my future depends on the university I go to.

            Sure, but there's a hard limit on how much you can study productively in a given day. If you try to go beyond it, you'll learn LESS than if you took some time to rest.

    Sell all your internet accessed devices, get rid of your data plan, get a dumbphone. Transfer all of your important files to a usb stick, which you can access when at public computer such as at library.

    Different poster. You could get a feature phone too or get a launcher that mimics dumb or feature phones. Start carrying around a small pocket size notebook and use it to replace your phone in every way to can. Lists, schedules, ideas, memos. If you want entertainment out of it you could look to the journaling community for prompts or write and draw in it.

    You do it because you want to.
    Stop wanting to.
    Or continue wanting to, and stop feeling regret.
    In either case, you clearly want to do what you're doing, or else you wouldn't do it. Fucking decide if you want to keep those impulses or keep your regret, and then discard the other one. It's that simple.

    Remove your access to the internet. Restructure your life to regularly go to a public wifi and download everything you need for normal function and then consume it offline
