Goodbye "Days"

I am hesitant to admit this, but I starting watching Days of Our Lives when I was in sixth grade! I have continued watching for about 18 years! This sounds stupid, I'm sure, but I tried to quit several times--only to get sucked back into the story line. Until now, that is. I am proud to say I have not watched a single minute since the beginning of December last year. And now I have a whole extra hour in my day that can be spent on other things like cleaning my house, playing with my kids, blogging...

Shortland Street is my downfall!
It's NZ's only homemade soap opera and there is many reasons why it's not going to make it onto to American television!

Hanging my head in shame. I used to be addicted too and with Tivo it was easy to keep up. Something happened to me too and I gave it up in December too. I am so glad to be free of it too. I am reading more now.

I would guess some of it was because the story line went to crap too. LOL!

It comes on during naptime, so I fold laundry and watch it. You'll never guess who's back.

I'm a newbie SAHM, so I WAS wondering if anyone really watched soaps.(as everyone thinks we do all day)

Oh my heck, heck, heck!

I guess you can start a daily soaps anonymous for all the others that really want to quit but just can't.

I watched when I was 13, usually while babysitting...

Now I make fun of daytime TV, ESPECIALLY OPRAH! Women can be such sheep. You'll get there, it will be something you make fun of too. You might need a few more months, but what are we here for anyway?

too funny - I was never addicted to soaps - but I did get addicted to junk tv - especially when the twins were babies & super fussy.
Now I am trying to turn off the tv - a ton more too.
easier said than done.

That's so funny! I never was interested in soap operas, but I understand the inclination. I could easily get addicted to CNN and MSNBC. When I used to work full time, CNN and MSNBC was on all the time in the office so I got used to listening to news all day long. I think part of it is simply habit.
