Thank you, Dan! I've been struggling with anime for a while now, but Cold Turkey is saving my life!
For context, whenever I'm having a bad time, I usually pray or watch anime. Anime is like my escape
But sometimes, it's like my prison. I get so hooked on it that I don't do anything else. Last week was a bad week in terms of motivation and productivity, so I literally wasted 2 days on anime
On Sunday, I saw your mail on how to block distracting websites, and I decided to give it a shot. I tried Cold Turkey on Sunday, and it's been 3 days since I looked at any anime or manga.
It's not that I don't get the urge to do it, but when I check the sites for anime/manga, Cold Turkey blocks it and shows me a motivational quote to keep me going. Not only can I block websites, I can also block searches containing anime and manga. How cool is that?
