I have a beautiful flat screen TV I am very proud of. I have basic cable, no movie channels and a Playstation 2 for games and DVD's. Mostly I watch the Discovery channel, History channel or the Travel channel but I also watch boxing, Colts games and motorcycle racing and movies I've usually seen before. The rest of the time I'm bouncing through the channels and back and forth between something like the Family Guy and what ever stupid reality show is on. I've noticed that the tv is the first thing I turn on in the morning or when I get home and the last thing I turn off before bed. I don't have a problem with this in the Winter months when I can't go out and ride my motorcycles and I work short days. I still get my workout in and all my house chores done. I've often thought of trying going without. I'm considering picking a date in the next two weeks, as the weather is getting better and then unpluging everything but my stereo and covering my tv with a sheet. I work long hours in the summer and what time I do have free needs to be spent doing more then watching television. Has anyone ever tried to unplug and if so, how'd it go. I know alot of people just don't watch tv and that's cool. What I'm really asking is has anyone like me who was raised in front of a tube ever tried go tv free?
